There was so much confusion about Dulquer Salman’s crime thriller Kurup that whether it is releasing theatrically or the makers are opting for the digital release of this much-hyped period crime-thriller film? we are going to update the latest news related to the film including the Star Cast, Trailer, OTT release Date, & the Production.
The Malayalam star actor Dulquer Salman’s thriller is a story of Kerala’s most wanted fugitive Sukumara Kurup, reportedly, the film is one of the high-budget movies that has been released post covid.
Kurup is the story of one of the most wanted criminals, Sudhakara Kurup, in India who faked his death and killed his look-alike to claim his life insurance, it is a spine-chilling crime story that actually happened in India.
The most surprising fact is that he has managed to pull off the crime and has not been caught yet! Dulquer Salman has managed to travel back in the 60s when the accused was a young boy and hadn’t even thought of doing something like this.
The creators of the film made sure to highlight the time when his stories of deception actually started which ended up making him the most wanted criminal! The complete story covers the three decades of Kurup’s life, before and after the crime included.
The way the makers of the film have recreated the era of the 70s, 80s, and 90s is worth mentioning and sets the mood of the film. With Dulquer Salman playing the role of Kurup, he has done full justice to his character. As we watch the film, the first half of the movie is engaged in building up the character of Kurup and what it took to turn him into a fugitive.
From joining the Indian Air Force to becoming a con who fooled the entire Kerala state police department, Kurup’s hunt has been never-ending to date. Though the makers received mixed feedback from the masses for making the character of a conman so heroic, Srinath Rajendran hasn’t tried to humanize his story!
Though the film never feels overboard, there are times that we feel it’s lengthy, but the hunt for the most wanted fugitive in India keeps the audience glued and connected to the story. Apart from Dulquer Salman, all the other characters, for instance, Indrajith Sukumaran’s character of the investigating police officer, seem to have provided justice to their respective characters. With its 2 hrs 40 min runtime, Kurup keeps the audience engaged till the very end!
