As the superstar of Mollywood, actor Mohanlal, turns 56 on Saturday, his fans seems to have twin reasons to celebrate. There’s double the joy in the air, as the first teaser of his upcoming Malayalam film Pulimurugan has seen daylight.
In the action thriller expected to release in July, Mohanlal is seen playing the role of Murugan, a wild hunter. According to reports, the film directed by Vysakh, has a thrilling action sequence in its 20-minute long climax where Mohanlal will be seen fighting a tiger. Vysakh was quoted as saying that the teaser would be Mohanlal’s birthday special.
The teaser begins with showing a wide expanse of a jungle, and the question being raised, who is Murugan? There is a whole lot of build up for the veteran actor as one after the other people say things like he is a divine incarnation on this Earth, another man says that he is an avatar of Narasimha. Then they finally show Mohanlal in black dhoti with some hunting gear on as he takes on goons.
But it doesn’t really look that exciting as the actor’s stunt seems rather forced and lethargic. However, it must be taken into consideration that it is still a big deal that he does his own stunts at this age. The actor seems to be playing a famous hunter which is based on a real life character.
