Fahadh Faasil and Aishwarya Lekshmi in 'Varathan' trailer.

To an extent, initially, the trailer of Amal Neerad's upcoming thriller gives the vibe of Jordan Peele's race-psychological-thriller 'Get Out' and even Roman Polanski's 'Repulsion'.

It proves after a few seconds that it is not.

Featuring Fahadh Faasil and 'Maayanadhi' fame Aishwarya Lekshmi, 'Varathan' or outsider is about a couple coming to stay in the heroine's ancestral village.

From the trailer, it seems that Eby (Faasil) is the obvious outsider, the stranger who doesn't know the prevalent norms of a rustic space and how to dodge the fuedal gaze from himself.

Amal Neerad goes back to his favourite shooting spot-- the high range, where he has set three of his earlier movies -- 'Iyobinte Pusthakam', 'Bachelor Party' and 'Comrade in America', in 'Varathan'.

Produced by Nazriya Nazim and Amal Neerad, 'Varathan' has cinematography by Little Swayamp (Parava, Koode) and music by Sushin Shyam.
