The teaser opens with the shot of a man looking at an old mansion or the Kerala “Tharavaadu”. The time setting seems to be in late 1800s or early 1900s.
The man turns towards the camera. The man is Mohanlal who looks to be in his 20s. He turns and whirls the blanket around his shoulders and walks towards the camera. The blanket is like the ones usually used by the tribals. So Mohanlal could be a part of the indigenous tribes or is associated with them in some way.

The walk is with great determination. It is as though he has made a strong decision on or about doing some deed. The leaves in his way starts to blow away as if by magic and a mysterious fog seems to appear from nowhere.
Then Mohanlal’s voice booms as he narrates, “Manikyan…. No, Odiyan Manikyan’s Odi (an old magic/shamanism ) tricks can be seen now… Friends, the game starts now…”
And then the credits roll.. October 11 is shown as the release date.

There are quite a few things that can be found out about the movie although the teaser is short.
One is that the movie is set in the end of the 18th century or the beginning of the 19th century.
Another is that Mohanlal is in his 20s when there is a life-changing situation.
Third is that Mohanlal’s character is named Manikyan and he is an “Odiyan”. Odiyans were magicians/shamans/mystical figures who were found around the Palghat region in Kerala.
Another is that Manikyan is somehow associated with some tribes as the blanket that he uses to wrap around himself is mostly used by tribals.
The sixth thing that stands out is Mohanlal’s voice embodied a firm decision to act on something.
The seventh thing about the teaser is that the intonation of Mohanlal’s voice seemed to be slanting towards revenge. So the character must have been wronged by someone and he is setting out to take revenge.
The next thing we can learn is about the old bungalow what looks like to be a “naalu kettu”. That could either be Mohanlal’s house which he is leaving or forced to leave. This could also be the house of the antagonists.
The ninth thing is that there is a lot of magic involved and so will there be a lot of VFX.
The movie is an Onam Release and also stars Manju Warrier, Prakash Raj, Innocent, Siddiq, and Narain among others. The movie is directed by Shreekumar Menon and Produced under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas.
