Jayasurya’s Eesho to be Sony LIV’s next Malayalam direct-to-OTT release

Sony LIV has been on a roll when it comes to releasing quality Malayalam content on OTT. Almost all of its past releases including Tovino Thomas’ Kaanekkaane, Shane Nigam and Revathy’s Bhoothakaalam, Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Churuli and Joju George’s Madhuram had won honours at this year’s Kerala State Film Awards. Up next the OTT platform is gearing up for the release of Jayasurya’s Eesho.

The movie, which is helmed by Nadirshah, marks the actor’s second direct-to-OTT release after Ranjith Sankar’s Sunny that hit Amazon Prime Video last year. Eesho also marks the second collaboration between the director and State Award-winning actor after their comedy caper Amar Akbar Antony.

Contrary to Nadirshah’s previous films, all of which have been fun entertainers, Eesho is a thriller. Scripted by Suneesh Varanad, the movie also has Jaffer Idukki and Namitha Pramod in pivotal characters. Shot extensively in the night after the first lockdown, the film’s main locations were Kochi and Dubai.
