Secret to release on 26 July

Malayalam actor Dhyan Sreenivasan will next be seen in veteran scriptwriter SN Swamy’s directorial debut, Secret. The makers have announced that Secret will be released in theatres on 26 July.

The film is touted to be a motivational drama. Being the debut directorial of SN Swamy, Secret evoked huge expectations among movie lovers.

The veteran scriptwriter is synonymous with investigation thrillers, which were mostly headlined by Mammootty. The CBI series is a perfect example of Swamy’s expertise in crime thrillers.

SN Swamy debuted as a writer in 1984 with Sajan’s Chakkarayumma. In the later years, he became popular for scripting superhit thrillers like Irupatham Nottandu (1987), August 1 (1988), Moonnam Mura (1988), Naduvazhikal (1989), and Dhruvam (1993).

In February this year, Mammootty launched the title poster of Secret. The posters released later further increased anticipation for the flick.

Besides Dhyan Sreenivasan, the Malayalam movie casts Aparna Das, Jacob Gregory, Kalesh Ramanand, Ardra Mohan, Ranjith, Renji Panicker, Jayakrishnan, Suresh Kumar, Abhiram Radhakrishnan, and Manikuttan in crucial roles.

Swamy also penned the screenplay for Secret, while his son Sivaram worked as the co-director. The film is produced by Rajendra Prasad under the banner of Lakshmi Parvathy Vision.

Jakes Bejoy composed the music and background score.

Meanwhile, Secret is the second release of Dhyan Sreenivasan in July. His recent outing, Partners, earned a good response from audiences.

Dhyan also played an impressive role in Varshangalkku Shesham directed by his brother Vineeth Sreenivasan. The actor appeared in two different avatars in the film – as a young man and as an elderly person.

However, his Swargathile Katturumbu and Kudumba Sthreeyum Kunjadum, released after Varshangalkku Shesham, missed the mark at the box office.

Dhyan Sreenivasan has a lineup of films, including Ideem Minnalum, Omar Lulu’s Bad Boys, and debutant director Dhaanjay Shankar’s Bha Bha Bha. He is also part of Dileep’s 150th film and yet-untitled projects helmed by Muhashin and Nisam Basheer.

In a recent interview, the actor revealed that he would soon direct a romantic film and that he was trying to do the sequel of Thira, his debut film directed by Vineeth Sreenivasan.
