Official Trailer and Plot
Despite the subject of the film being serious, its organic comic scenes give it a comic tag. The story follows Sethu and Megha, a small-town couple. They intend to elope, but things get complicated when Sethu’s sister also makes the same choice. While attempting to elope with Megha undetected, Sethu and his quarrelling uncles must bring her back.
Arjun Ashokan, Anna Ben, Suresh Krishna, and Nandhu play the lead in the movie. The movie is produced by Sanjay Routray, Sarita Patil, Vishnu Shyam Prasad, and Gayathri M under the auspices of Matchbox Pictures and is directed by Achyuth Vinayak. Jayesh Mohan and Ajmal Sabu handled the camera, and JK and Rakesh Cherumadam are the music directors.
The movie got mixed response upon its theatrical release. Its comic scenes were praised but the oft-repeated story of elopement in Malayalam cinema was the downside of the movie. Even IMDb ranked it 5.5 on its ranking of 10.
Even though there have been plenty of elopement stories in Malayalam films, the majority of them are romantic and leave you feeling awkward, either because you emotionally identify with the couples or because of the intensely emotional sequences that are playing in the background.
Thrisanku is a bit different from that. The creators make an effort to add humour to practically every circumstance. In a couple of spots where you would have anticipated some melodrama, the characters catch you off guard with abrupt or snarky remarks. So get ready to watch this melodramatic yet comic movie on your tv screens.
