'The Priest' is a film directed by Joffin D. Sacco and starring Mammootty, Manju Warrier and Nikhila Wimal. Filming for this movie was interrupted by a corona threat. Afterwards, the corona threat subsides and filming begins and is fully completed and ready for release.
It was announced to be released on March 5th and advertising work began. 2 teasers from this movie have been released on the internet so far and have received great response. It is worth mentioning that this is the first time that Mammootty and Manju Warrier have acted together in this film.
The release of the film has been postponed while the promotional work for the film is in full swing. The crew has not yet announced when the next release will be. Theaters have not yet opened abroad, including in Dubai and Oman. The crew was planning to release worldwide at the same time.
Not only have theaters not yet opened in some foreign countries, but the government has not yet given permission for night screenings in Kerala as well. This has been a setback for the crew as the family only comes for night time shows on the weekends.
With all this in mind, 'The Priest' has postponed the release of the film.
