LetsOTT Editorial Team -
Manu Warrier's Kuruthi, featuring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Roshan Mathew, premiered on Amazon Prime Video on the occasion of Onam, to general acclaim. Here are five insights you might not have heard about the film.
Prithviraj's Energy: During the trailer launch press conference and in multiple interviews, the cast of Kuruthi, especially Roshan Mathew, revealed how everyone on the sets was simply mesmerised by Prithviraj's energy. Roshan revealed that the entire cast and crew of Kuruthi had this notion about Prithviraj that he never gets tired and they would eagerly await with curiosity to see if the superstar ever shows any signs of exhaustion or exertion
Mamukkoya's Magic: Prithviraj and Roshan both could not stop appreciating Mamukkoya and his charismatic persona that he used to bring to the sets of Kuruthi. They both mentioned on multiple occasions that the entire experience of working with Mamukkoya was a surreal one and there was so much to learn from him. Prithviraj even went ahead and commented that he would offer Mamukkoya some time to rest in between shoots. Much to his surprise the great man would always be around the sets with all his energy focused into delivering his best for the character.
Roshan's Skepticism: Roshan Mathew once mentioned that when he first heard about Kuruthi and the kind of actors associated with it, which includes a list of veterans and superstars, he had his doubts regarding if he should take up the role and wondered if he would be able to do justice to it. But we all know the humble person that Roshan Mathew is and looking at the trailer ‘justice to the role is an understatement to be precise.’
Shoot Schedule: The amount of dedication that went behind making this movie is simply insane. The cast of the movie revealed during a press conference that the shoot schedule would begin at 8 AM and would sometimes go on till 10 at night and the wrapped up the entire shoot in a record 24 days! Well, surely all of that reflects brilliantly on screen and we can't wait for the movie to launch.
Play of Fate: Prithviraj revealed during a conversation that he came across the script of Kuruthi while he was at home due to the lockdown and mentioned that he is glad for things to fall in place at the right time. Prithviraj was so impressed by the script that he even decided to produce the entire movie all by himself and rope in the talent himself!
