"It's just been a day and my social media is flooded with messages. I couldn’t have imagined anything better than this ever. Thank you to all the people who have loved and appreciated our work. A huge shoutout to Netflix and Weekend Blockbusters, our producers for always supporting us and helping us take this movie across the globe.”

Expressing his excitement, actor Tovino Thomas said: “No words can express how I'm feeling at the moment, it's been a dream come true to see such a wonderful response from everyone around.

"Becoming Minnal Murali was challenging but the output has been wonderful. Basil is a visionary and I'm thrilled that he trusted me with this role. I want to thank our producer Sophia Paul for backing us through this mammoth project and Netflix for taking this to the world."

Producer Sophia Paul said: “Minnal Murali was, is and will always be the most special project of my life. We had a vision which was executed brilliantly by the entire team. They gave it their 100 per cent even through all the odds and that's why making this movie was possible. I want to thank all my actors, the entire crew and especially Netflix for supporting us and making this dream come true.”


With its lightning-bolt pace, epic origin story, and tale of good versus evil, Minnal Murali will emotionally engage and enthral viewers, making it the perfect holiday film.
