'Bro Daddy' trailer: Mohanlal, Prithviraj-starrer looks like a fun family-drama
Bro Daddy's trailer is finally here! The second directorial venture of Prithviraj Sukumaran stars himself along with Mohanlal, Charle, Meena, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Lalu Alex, and Kaniha. The trailer indicates that the film will be an entertaining family drama. Antony Perumbavoor has bankrolled the project under his Aashirvad Cinemas banner. The film is scheduled to premiere on the OTT platform Disney+ Hotstar on January 26.
Why does the story matter?
Sukumaran's debut directorial venture Lucifer, which also had Mohanlal in the lead role, was a smashing hit. The 2019 film had a serious premise, but Bro Daddy will be light and show the comical and witty side of the megastar. Also, in Lucifer, Sukumaran made only an extended cameo appearance, whereas, in Bro Daddy, he will be seen playing one of the leads.
Trailer is full of humorous and dramatic moments
Coming back to the 2:47-minute-long clip, it shows Mohanlal and Meena as Sukumaran's parents, while Priyadarshan is seen as the actor's romantic interest. The comical scenes in the trailer made us crack up, and we understood what a laugh riot the film will be. Especially, during the part when the family realizes that Priyadarshan's father and Meena had feelings for each other during college.
Tamil film fans have a 'wow' element in trailer, too
Actor Charle's brief appearance has a dialogue reference to his epic Tamil comedy-drama Friends—"Ivaru yaaru, unga friend uh (is he your friend?)"— and it has clicked so very well. Meanwhile, the film's technical team includes Deepak Dev, who has composed the music, Abhinandan Ramanujam is the cinematographer, and Akhilesh Mohan is at the edits. The film's shooting got finished in September 2021.

Meanwhile, the sequel to Sukumaran and Mohanlal's Lucifer (L2: Empuraan) is also in the making. Perumbavoor will be financing this project, too. Besides this, we have Mohanlal's directorial debut Barroz, a children's drama, to look forward to. Recently, a making teaser was released, upping our anticipation. Some reports suggest Sukumaran has backed out of this film. However, there is no official update on it.
