Unni Mukundan, one of the most versatile and talented actors in Malayalam cinema, is all set to star in a new film titled ‘November 9’. The film is written and directed by Pradeep M. Nair, who made his debut with the critically acclaimed ‘Vimaanam’ in 2017. The film is produced by Shareef Muhammed and Abdul Gadhaf under the banner of Cubes Entertainments, which has previously backed films like ‘Kismath’ and ‘Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum’.
The film was announced on November 9, 2023, with a motion poster that was released on YouTube. The motion poster features a striking visual of a fetus wrapped in red tape, falling on the map of India, with the backdrop of the Babri Masjid demolition. The poster also reveals the tagline of the film: “A story that begins before birth and ends after death”.
The film is said to be a procedural drama that explores the impact of politics and bureaucracy on the lives of ordinary people. The film will touch upon some of the most controversial and sensitive issues in contemporary India, such as communal violence, corruption, caste discrimination, and human rights violations.
