"Double Barrel - Iratta Kuzhal", directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery, starring Prithviraj, Arya, Indrajith in the lead roles, hit screens on Thursday, 27 August.
The multi-starrer comedy thriller also has Asif Ali, Swati Reddy, Isha Sharvani, Sunny Wayne, Vijay Babu, Manu, Chemban Vinod, Pearle Maaney, Sabu Abu Samad and Rachana Narayanankutty in pivotal roles.
The film has been in news ever since the makers released its first look posters and teaser. Interestingly, this is the second Malayalam film of Tamil actor Arya after "Urumi".
"Double Barrel", produced jointly by August Cinemas Pvt Ltd and Amen Movie Monastery, is one of the most awaited Onam release.
Prithviraj had earlier warned his fans that the "Double Barrel" is a "genre bender" in Malayalam films.
"Be warned, Double Barrel is like nothing you have seen before. It's a genre bender..rather a whole new genre for Malayalam cinema. It's about gangsters, dealers, schemers and goons...all chasing after an elusive pair of diamonds..all bound by their disarmingly endearing stupidity," Prithviraj posted on his official Facebook handle.

Just watched #doublebarrel #movie, great direction with a pulp fiction-esque style. #doublebarrel is a quirky Malayalam movie with a great direction, cinematography and background score, a grt attempt by lijo and the crew. #doublebarrel movie is 4 ones wu hv liked movs like Snatch or other Guy Ritchie movs, Pulp Fiction etc. Cinematography is top notch, 3.5/5
Double Barrel: Much anticipated Lijo Jose Pellissery's film. We have seen similar genre movies in our industry itself and there's double barrel. From the posters/ trailers a uniqueness was visible and the movie maintained the standard in each frame right from the title card. A retro set Goa with guns and explosives, Malayalam speaking foreigners, Silent & Kid, A desperate couple and more. .Editing was at top notch , Renganaath Ravee's Sound design, Prashant Pillai's trippy scores. DB might not satisfy everyone, but it definitely needs appreciation for the effort Lijo & team took for this format which is new for our audience. അടിയും വെടിയും പുകയും !!!
DOUBLE BARREL: A Below Average Movie.Don't know how to express how bored I was in the Theatre. Movie is Full of Guns,Bullets and lots of coloured bulbs too.Haven't heard this much of Howling for any movie.Didn't expect this kind of a movie from August Cinemas.Better not to Watch it....
