After the grand success of Angamaly Diaries, the trailer of Antony Varghese's next film Swathanthriyam ArdhaRathriyil (Freedom at Midnight) was released on March 18. The 1 minute and 43 second trailer is set in a prison and promises a fast-paced, nail-biting thriller.
The trailer introduces Varghese in style with 'Pepe is back', a reference to Vincent Pepe, his character in Angamaly Diaries. The trailer indicates that Varghese, along with other members of the cast, are inmates in a prison and we're treated to a few action packed clashes between them. The loud metal background score too adds to the thrill element in the trailer.
According to earlier reports, Varghese will be essaying the role of a person who has been working in a finance company.
The trailer was released simultaneously by the big stars of Mollywood - Prithviraj Sukumaran, Tovino Thomas, Nivin Pauly, Indrajit and Bollywood star Jackie Shroff.
Scripted by Dileep Kurien and directed by Tinu Pappachan, the film is jointly produced by Lijo Jose Pellissery and Chemban Vinod Jose, along with BC Joshi and B Unnikrishnan. Apart from Varghese, the film also has ace actor Vinayakan in the star cast. The film is expected to release later this month.
Angamaly Diaries, which hit the theatres on March 3, 2017, was one of the highest grossing films of the year, earning Rs 20 crores at the box office. With 86 debutants in the filmâ€™s star cast, the film is also widely regarded as one of the biggest hits in the Malayalam film industry.
The filmâ€™s lead, Antony Varghese, a resident of Angamaly, was intentionally chosen to add to the authenticity of the film as he would know the pulse of the town, where the film was set. With the grand success of Angamaly Diaries, audiences are eagerly awaiting the release of Swathanthriyam ArdhaRathriyil.
