Kaathal marks Jyotika’s return to the Malayalam film industry after 12 years. She had earlier acted in Seethakalyanam (2009) directed by Rajeev Kumar.

Earlier, Tamil Superstar Suriya had said that Kaathal’s theme was the one that attracted him the most. Every moviegoer is waiting for the release update of the movie. 

Jeo Baby has an impressive track record as his films, such as The Great Indian Kitchen, dealt with issues faced by women in a male-dominated society.

He then directed a short film that was part of the anthology film Freedom Fight. The movie went on to show the issues faced by old people, and it was titled Old Age Home.

Kaathal is produced by Mammootty Kampany and distributed by Dulquer Salman’s Wayfarer Films. Salu K Thomas is the cinematographer of the movie while the screenplay is written by Adarsh ​​Sukumaran and Paulson Zakaria.

Mammootty’s earlier films like Rorschach (2022) and Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam (2022) had mesmerized audiences, and Kathal also has expectations from movie buffs as Mammootty is collaborating with Jeo Baby.
