Sumanth is an actor who does films at his own pace. He does sensitive films and was lauded for his performance in a film called Malli Raava which was made by Gautam Tinnanuri of Jersey fame.
Once again, Sumanth is ready with one more romantic family drama called Malli Modalaindi. The film is based on the life of a man after he gets divorced. What happens when a man who applies for a divorce falls in love with his lawyer? That’s the premise of ‘Malli Modalaindi‘. Varshini Sounderajan has played Sumanth’s wife, while Naina Ganguly has played the lawyer.
The concept and teaser looked decent for an OTT home watch. As cases are growing, the film is skipping the theatrical release and will be out on Zee 5 in February.
This is quite interesting and a wise decision from the makers as Sumath’s films hardly work in the theaters. But such films like Malli Raava and Malli Modalaindi will surely click at the OTT windows as they will suit the mood and taste of the family audience who love binge-watching at home at their leisure.
Directed by TG Keerthi Kumar, the Telugu-language film has been produced by K Rajasekhar Reddy of ED Entertainment. Anup Rubens has composed its music. The makers will soon announce the release date of the film.
