Dulquer Salmaan’s Kurup is likely to go the OTT route. As per reports, the Srinath Rajendran film is being sought by major OTT platforms for a record price. It seems the decision of reopening Kerala theatres next year is said to have increased the film’s chances of hitting an OTT platform. The big-budget film was supposed to release in the first half of 2020. 

Kurup skipping theatres would be a loss for not just the makers but also moviegoers who were eagerly expecting to witness the period film on a large canvas.  Dulquer’s own production house Wayfarer Films and M-Star Entertainments are producing the film, based on the escapades of a real-life criminal named Sukumara Kurup who remains absconding to this day. 

Dulquer’s co-stars include Shine Tom Chacko, Indrajith Sukumaran, Sobhita Dhulipala, Sunny Wayne, Surabhi Lakshmi, P Balachandran, and Shivajith Padmanabhan. Filming took place for over six months in locations such as Dubai, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Mysuru. 

Srinath Rajendran directed a script co-written by KS Aravind and Daniel Sayooj Nair, adapted from a story by Jithin K Jose. Nimish Ravi handled the cinematography and Vivek Harshan, the editing. Sushin Shyam composed the music with National award winner Vinesh Banglan (Kammara Sambhavam)  on the production design.
