Minnal Murali is an upcoming Malayalam film directed by Basil Joseph starring Tovino Thomas. It is said that Minnal Murali is the first superhero movie in Malayalam. But Tovino Thomas says this argument is incorrect.
Tovino Thomas talked about former Malayalam superhero films in an interview with Behind the Woods.
“Superhero movies have come before in Malayalam. There are films that come with characters with supernatural powers. Not only supernatural but also films featuring superhero characters have been made in Malayalam. Movies like Little Superman have come here before. Therefore, we have no claim that Minnal Murali is the first superhero film in Malayalam. This is going to be a good movie. It will be a good superhero movie;” said Tovino Thomas.
Tovino said that the character of Minnal Murali is not only capable of running fast as seen in the teaser but also has many other abilities. The actor also talked about his favorite superhero in the interview. Tovino says he loves Superman.
“Even if Henry Cavil doesn’t play the role, Superman is a terrific character. The first Superhero I saw and am familiar with is Superman. I like every superhero character. Iron man is my next favorite superhero;” said Tovino.
Minnal Murali is director Basil Joseph's second film featuring Tovino in the lead role after Goda. Tamil actor Guru Somasundaram, who is notable for his performances in films like Jigarthanda and Joker, plays a major role in the film. Apart from him, actors such as Aju Varghese, Byju, Harisree Ashokan, and Femina George play important characters in the film
