Prithviraj Sukumaran Cold Case trailer: 10 reasons to look forward to the movie
1. Prithviraj Sukumaran’s OTT debut
Cold Case marks Prithviraj Sukumaran’s debut on an OTT platform. He has earlier worked in movies like Lucifer, Ravaanan, 7th Day, etc. His fans are looking forward to his performance in the movie. He will be playing the role of a no-nonsense cop who believes in nothing but facts.
2 . Intriguing storyline
The refers to homicide and a ‘decomposed’ human skull. This quite appropriately proves that the movie is not meant for the faint-hearted. By the time the trailer ends, we are left with several questions the answers to which do not come readily to us. It is likely to have a “dark narrative”.
3. Promising star cast but will the women get their due?
Cold Case features various female actors such as Aditi Balan and Suchitra Pillai. However, none of them gets enough screen time or prominence in this trailer at least. We are yet to see if the women in the movie get a chance to do justice to their abilities.
4. Movies that do well
Malayalam thrillers such as Forensic, Memories, Ezra etc were perceived well by the audience. Keeping in mind that the Malayalam film industry does justice to this genre, we can expect the same from Cold Case.
5. What about the emotional connection?
No wonder the trailer gives us chills down the spine with an unconventional plot but will the movie succeed in connecting it to us emotionally? Movies such as Drishyam and Drishyam 2 had emotional undertones and received immense support from the audience. Let’s see if we find something similar in Cold Case.
6. Intrusion of supernatural elements
The movie attempts to reveal secrets supernatural spirits left behind before escaping from the earth. A theme believed to be unrealistic by many, it seems to fit well in the movie’s plot. What remains to be seen is if it is practically incorporated in the movie.
7. More than evidence and facts?
Talking about the movie, Sukumaran said in a tweet, Sukumaran said, “There’s a lot more to the case than just evidence and facts.” The actor’s fans are eagerly waiting for the film’s release and his performance.

8. The Big Screen Experience
Given the COVID-19 situation, most movies are now releasing on OTT platforms for movie lovers to enjoy from the comfort of their homes. However, we might miss watching what seems to be a “good theatre experience” because of the eeriness involved.
9. What to expect from Tanu Balak?
Tanu Balak, the Cinematographer-turned-Director seems to be winning hearts with his skills as depicted in the trailer. To see if he truly justifies his role as a Director, we have to wait for the 30th of this month.
10. A positive response
Finally in Cold Case trailer takeaways comes the response of the audience. The audience is looking forward to the thriller’s OTT release on June 30. The trailer has received a positive response. Sukumaran has never disappointed his fans in the role of a cop and they are hopeful of witnessing something similar in this movie too.
