Kerala Blasters have issued a cinematic message for Bengaluru FC with the sides set to clash again in the Indian Super League on March 2.

The Blasters have taunted their arch-rivals by sneaking in popular lines from movie stars Mammootty and Mukesh into a montage featuring two dramatic moments from their recent meetings.

The first part of the montage is the infamous freekick goal scored by Sunil Chhetri from last season's playoff tie that resulted in the Blasters' forfeiting with a walkout.

The voiceover is 'Meledathu Raghavan Nair' essayed by Mammottty in the popular Malayalam film 'Vatsalyam'.

"Manushyanaveda Adyam. Ennitundak Nilayum Vilayum. Athum Sootrathil Undakukayalla Vendath. Swayam Undavate. Atha Kazhivu" (Be a human before you achieve fame. And don't use tricks. Let it be earned. That's skill).

In the movie, Raghavan Nair was seething with anger as he uttered those lines to his younger brother Vijayakumaran. Where the Blasters trying to show who the big bro is?

The second part of the 28-second edited clip features the moment the Blasters avenged their playoff loss by winning 2-1 at home in the opener of the current season. Adrian Luna had raced on to score the winner after Bengaluru goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu had made a big mistake of rolling the ball a bit further out.

The voiceover used for this part is from an infamous phone call recording featuring actor Mukesh. "Eda Andhas Venameda Manushyanayal." (A human must have some dignity). That was Mukesh telling a fan, who called him at an untimely hour.

The Blasters sit 11 points clear of Benglauru in the fifth position in the ISL points table. The two teams have had fluctuating fortunes of late, winning just two of their last five matches in the competition. But with the battle resuming on social media, the match on the field should be entertaining.
