The makers of the upcoming Tovino Thomas starrer Minnal Murali have released the first look poster of the film in five languages. The dark-themed poster shows Tovino in a black shirt and white mundu, his face covered in a red scarf, running with what looks like a notebook or diary in his hand. The background shows a moonlit night with several people marching on a beach with flaming torches and huge fires burning far away.

A press note from the filmmakers states: “The big budget super hero flick is produced by Sophia Paul under the banner of Weekend Blockbusters, is directed by Basil Joseph and has Sameer Thahir handling cinematography. The team has roped in Hollywood sensation Vlad Rimburg as the action director, who has been a part of international hits like the Will Smith starrer Gemini Man, The Last Witch Hunter, Netflix – Lucifer, Batman: The Telltale Series, Baahubali 2, Salman Khan starrer Sultan and numerous others.”

The statement also mentions that Minnal Murali has been shot extensively in Kerala, particularly at rustic and unexplored locations.

Elaborating on the film’s technical crew, the press note reads, “Minnal Murali has a dynamic crew that includes Baahubali art director Manu Jagadh handling the most intricate and challenging sets that demand aesthetic brilliance. The movie has the very versatile Shaan Rahman scoring music to Manu Manjith’s lyrics. Minnal Murali is written by Arun Anirudhan and Justin Mathew, and has editing by Livingston Mathew. Andrew D’Crus is the VFX supervisor and sound design is by Nixon George. Cedin Paul and Kevin Paul are the project designers of Minnal Murali.
