Ten days ago, Malayalam cinema gave us a reason to be excited as we saw the first look of C/O Saira Banu starring the talented actress Manju Warrier and the equally powerful Amala Akkineni. While fans are excited about Manju Warrier taking centre stage again, it's Amala Akkineni's comeback that is making this project even more thrilling. She is coming back to Malaylam cinema after 25 years now! Now to tease us a little more, the makers have released a teaser - one thing is clear, Maju is not playing a typical mother, she's more of a friend than a parent to her teenage son played by Shane Nigam. The scene where they make a dubsmash video gives you a glimpse of their care-free yet close relationship. When the painter in the teaser comments - I thought it would be somebody older when you said you were another - it resonates with our thoughts as well. The movie looks fresh and light hearted. For all those who don't know - she plays a postwoman who hails from a middle class family in Kochin. Amala Akkineni will step in as the lawyer in this film. There were no glimpses of her in the teaser, but we are hoping there's a whole new teaser where they introduce her character.
Amala was a popular actress in the early 90s across multiple languages - Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam. She was last seen in 2015's Hamari Adhuri Kahani. As for Manju Warrier, she had a series of hits ever since she made a comeback - How Old are You? Rani Padmini, Ennum Eppozhum, and Karimkunnam 6S being the latest film. We are very excited about this combo. It's going to be power packed and a performance oriented film. We can't wait!
So, does this teaser have you excited about C/O Saira Banu? The movie is all set to release on March 17. What an apt movie to release in the Women's day Month.
