Lady superstar Manju Warrier's latest Malayalam movie C/o Saira Banu was released in Kerala, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, and a few other centres on Friday, March 17. It has locked horns with Sunny Wayne's family entertainer Alamara, directed by Midhun Manuel Thomas.
Manju plays the title role of Saira Banu, a post woman, while Shane is seen as her son Joshua Peter, a second year law student, who is also an aspiring photographer. Yesteryear actress Amala Akkineni plays Adv. Annie John Tharavady in the family entertainer, which marks her comeback to Malayalam cinema after a long gap of 26 years.

An unexpected event that takes place marks the entry of Annie John in their lives, and what follows forms the gist of C/o Saira Banu.
