Vinay Fort says that Lijo Jose Pellissery's Churuli will hit the theatres with a newly edited version. Two edited versions of the scroll were displayed at IFFK itself. He says that it will be a different movie now. Vinay Fort's response was on the Backspace YouTube channel.
“It is unknown at this time whether the movie is releasing through OTT or theatres. There is a great deal of optimism about the film. The fact that I played the lead in Pellissery's film will be one of the highlights of my filmography. The film festival itself had two edits of the film. A new edit version is will be rolled out to the new platform. It won’t be the Churuli we’ve seen till now. Lijo Chettan says that he has the freedom to make a new version of the film Life Long. Lijo Chettan is a terrific genius;” Vinay Fort said in the interview.
The film Churuli is based on the story of Vinoy Thomas. The screenplay is written by S Harish. Madhu Neelakanthan is the cinematographer of the film. The trailer hints that Chemban Vinod Jose and Vinay Fort will be going to a very special place in search of the character named Mylaadumparambil Joy. Most of the scenes and the film is shot in a forest.
This is the 8th film of director Lijo Jose Pellishery. His last film Jellikkettu was announced as the Indian entry for Best International Feature Film at the 93rd Academy Awards.
