The trailer for the highly anticipated Nivin Pauly and Trisha-starrer Hey Jude was released on Friday.
The Shyamaprasad film will mark Trisha's entry to the Malayalam film industry. As the posters and teaser of the film suggested, Jude, played by Nivin, appears to be an oddball who is very particular about the way he dresses and his routines.
With a shirt buttoned all the way to the top and a pair of nerdy glasses, Nivin looks completely different from his stylish and swashbuckling avatar in Premam, the film which pushed him to superstardom. Actor Siddique, who plays his father, attests in the trailer that nobody can find a more upright young man than Jude.
Trisha, who plays his best friend, seems to be the young woman who understands Jude's peculiarities.
Does Jude fall in love with Trisha's character? Does her family stand in the way? The trailer throws some hints that way but that could be just to mislead us about the storyline.
Towards the end, Jude extends his hand and says, "I'm Jude, nice to meet you!" hesitantly, as if practising this greeting to impress someone.
Uploading the video on his social media pages, Nivin Pauly wrote: "One of the things I love about being an actor is playing someone who makes very different choices. Being Jude was challenging but at the same time fascinating. It is one among those characters I loved doing. HEY JUDE is poetic, intriguing and cute. Thank you Shyamaprasad sir for this role. Trisha, welcome to Malayalam cinema! So, the wait is over! Presenting you the world of Jude..!"
Nivin is currently shooting for Kayam Kulam Kochunni, a period film on the legendary Kerala highwayman. Meanwhile, Trisha has several projects in her kitty, including films where she plays the solo lead.
