Romancham, written and directed by debutant Jithu Madhavan and starring Soubin Shahir, hits theatres today. The film, which belongs to the horror-comedy category, tells the story of a group of friends studying in Bengaluru in 2007. Saubin Shahir can be seen in the trailer inviting the soul in front of the Ouija board.
This film was supposed to hit theatres in October last year. But due to some technical reasons, the release was delayed. The revised release date is February 3. Produced by John Paul George, Girish Gangadharan, and Saubin Shahir under the banners of John Paul George Productions and Guppy Cinemas. Annam Johnpaul and Sushin Shyam are co-producers.
Ahead of the film's release, the film's producer, John Paul George, shared a note on social media. In the letter, John Paul says that his life and career have been put at risk for this film, and now the hope is only in the audience. John Paul is the director of Guppy and Ambili. Guppy was a film that bombed in theatres despite receiving great reviews.
This is also indicated in John Paul George's letter. When I couldn't see Guppy at the theatre that day, I didn't have the money for that ticket that I extended to you. If it is used to buy a ticket to the thrill, I can go further. "I am not in the mood for a re-release," says John Paul in the letter.
full text of the letter
"Romancham hits theatres on Friday, where lives and careers are at stake as the business's ledgers crumble and crumble. Now your only hope is the audience. I want to come in front of you and cry and beg for a ticket, but my self-esteem won't allow it, and you won't like it either. So ask, is there no money for that ticket I extended to you when I couldn't see Guppy at the theatre that day? If I use it to buy a ticket for the thrill, I can go further. I don't have the courage to release it.
Thank you to Girish, Jobi Chetan, Sameerika, Asseemika, Shaji sir, dear friends, and those who stood by me with prayers... I know you have taken the promotion, trailer, and songs of Romanchath to heart. Knowing that there are fewer hoardings on the way, when it was to be released earlier, it was all there.
If you keep it any longer, it will be a big loss, and you will understand that. Romancham Central Pictures is showing in the best theatres in Kerala; you should definitely watch this movie, that's for sure. If you like it, tell others to see it; the hope of a new generation will not disappoint. Let us look forward to a good theatre experience that will make us laugh and smile.February -3. Booking has started.
I'm sorry if I've hurt anyone on this journey, and I'm sorry; it really stinks. I have completed the thrill ride. I don't know whether I will come to do a film or not.
hopefully, John Paul George"
