Another poster giving us the same vibe, featuring the megastar holding a gun in his hand, was released on September 22. It has a different tagline “For Him, Justice is an Obsession”. From these posters, it is evident that the film is going to be a fulfilling cinematic experience for Malayalam audiences.
