The film marks the reunion of Mammootty and Vysakh after 10 years
‘Turbo’ is the second collaboration between Mammootty and Vysakh, who had earlier worked together in the 2013 blockbuster ‘Pokkiri Raja’. The film was a mass entertainer that featured Mammootty as a don who returns to his hometown after a long exile. The film also marked the debut of Tamil actor Suriya in Malayalam cinema.
Vysakh is known for his commercial films that cater to the masses. He has directed some of the biggest hits in Malayalam cinema, such as ‘Pulimurugan’, ‘Madhura Raja’, and ‘Big Brother’. He is also working on the sequel of ‘Pokkiri Raja’, titled ‘Raja 2’, which will feature Mammootty and Suriya reprising their roles.
The film has an ensemble cast and crew
‘Turbo’ boasts of an impressive cast and crew that includes some of the popular names in Malayalam cinema. The film has music by Gopi Sundar, cinematography by Shaji Kumar, editing by Johnkutty, and art direction by Joseph Nellickal. The film also has stunt choreography by Peter Hein, who has worked on several big-budget films in India.
The film features an ensemble cast that includes Prithviraj Sukumaran, Nivin Pauly, Fahadh Faasil, Kunchacko Boban, Jayasurya, Asif Ali, Aju Varghese, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Anoop Menon, and others. The female lead of the film is yet to be announced.
The film is expected to release in 2024
‘Turbo’ is expected to be a high-octane action thriller that will showcase Mammootty’s charisma and versatility as an actor. The film is likely to have a pan-Indian appeal as it will be dubbed and released in other languages as well. The film is slated to release in 2024.
Mammootty’s fans are eagerly waiting for the film as it promises to be a treat for them. The actor’s last release was ‘Kannur Squad’, a crime thriller that hit the screens last month. The actor has several other projects in his kitty, such as ‘Bheeshma Parvam’, ‘The Priest’, ‘One’, and ‘CBI 5’.
