Updates on two of his upcoming movies came out on Mammootty's 72nd birthday that fell on Thursday, September 7. One has him play a police official, leading a team of young men, while the first look poster of the other shows him in a slightly unsettling light. The first, a police drama, is called Kannur Squad, whose trailer came out on Thursday. The second is Bramayugam, a film by Rahul Sadasivan, who made the horror movie Bhoothakalam last year.

Kannur Squad shows Mammootty play a character similar to his role in Unda, a committed cop fighting against all odds to do his job. Rony David Raj, Azees Nedumangad, Shabareesh Varma, and Sunny Wayne are part of his police team that travels across the country in search of a criminal gang. The film is produced by Mammootty Kampany and directed by Roby Varghese Raj, a cinematographer making his directorial debut. He has worked in Mammootty's earlier films like Puthiya Niyamam and The Great Father. The cinematography of Kannur Squad is by Rahil. The film is written by actor Rony David Raj and Muhammed Shafi. Sushin Shyam who made the mesmerising music of Kumbalangi Nights has composed the film’s music and Praveen Prabhakar has edited the film.

The second film – Bramayugam – is in its early stages and only a poster has been released now, showing Mammootty in black and white, letting age show on his face, which has an eerie grin on it. The tagline says ‘Bramayugam: The Age of Madness'. The film is produced by Chakravarthy Ramachandra and S Sashikanth. The director of the film, Rahul, made the highly praised Bhoothakalam, which won Revathy her first Kerala State film award for best female actor last year. It had Revathy and Shane Nigam play mother and son in a house that appears to be haunted by the ghosts of its previous owners. The film was as much about relationships as it was about the horrors of the past.
