Mohanlal's much awaited film "Peruchazhi" will be released on 29 August. The audio and trailer launch of the film directed by Arun Vaidyanathan will take place in the first week of August. The shooting, which is currently undergoing at Sacred Heart College, Thevara in Ernakulam, will wrap up on 5 July.
"The shooting wrapped up on 5 July. The film is set to launch on 29 August and the trailer and audio launch of the film will take place by the first week of August. The whole film has come out well till now and we hope everybody is going to love it", said the co producer of the film and actress Sandra Thomas.
"Peruchazhi" revolves around the life of two friends - Vishwanathan played by Mohanlal and Minister Raghavan played by Mukhesh. Even though they are good friends, they are political rivals at the same time.
The film goes through the incidents where both of them try to pull each other down. Vishwanathan is also known as "peruchazhi" as he is a very clever aspiring politician. The film takes a turn when Vishwanathan is sent to the US even though he is illiterate in English. He is sent during the gubernatorial election with the mission of raising the political graph of a politician who failed to keep his promise to his people. The film then shows how Vishwanathan struggles to finish his duty and how he survives in America without knowing English. The political thriller movie shows the political conditions of both America and India with a funny bone.
"Peruchazhi" has a huge star cast of Baburaj, Vijay Babu, Aju Varghese, Delhi Ganesh, Shankar Ramakrishnan, Sean James Sutton, Ramesh Pisharody, Ragini Nandhawani, Andrea Jeremiah, Sandra Thomas and Poonam Bajwa in lead roles. This big budget film is produced by Vijay Babu and Sandra Thomas under the banner of Friday Film House. It has earlier produced films like "Philips and the Monkey Pen", "Zachariahyude Garbhinikal" and "Friday." The producers will soon remake "Peruchazhi" into Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
