Dulquer, who plays as Jomon in the movie, has also thanked the audience for their support.
A film we made with so much love and effort. Working tirelessly day and night ! We completed everything including post production before I left for shoot in the US. It was heart-breaking to miss Christmas release. To deny all of you any Malayalam films to watch during the holiday season. But as I always believe every film has its own destiny. At long last #JomonteSuvisheshangal is ready for release this Thursday the 19th of January ! Been waiting a long time for all of you to watch the film. Thank you for being patient and for your endless love ❤❤ !
The Dulquer-starrer, which also features Mukesh, Anupama Parameshwaran and Aishwarya Rajesh in leading roles, is one of the most anticipated films of late. The teaser and songs of the film have already raised the expectations of the audience from it, which revolves around the relationship of a son and father based in Thrissur.
