Geetu Mohandas' latest directorial venture Moothon is going to be a paradigm shift in the career of actor Nivin Pauly, if the trailer is anything to go by.
Released on YouTube on Friday with #Moothon and #BhaiArrives, the trailer gives us a glimpse of the film, likely to be a realistic action thriller. The trailer gives us hints about the main characters including Bhai played by Nivin. From the trailer, it could be inferred that the plot of the film revolves around a boy's quest to find his Moothon or elder brother. The film seems to have a dark tone and rough texture.
The trailer is a mix of the sequences taking place in Mumbai's red street area called Kamattipura and the scenic islands of Lakshadweep. The trailer is also a sneak peek of the violence in store.
The trailer was released online on the occasion of Nivin's birthday. The actor turns 35 on Friday.
