Maine Pyar Kiya motion teaser out

Spire Productions, which recently bankrolled Mandakini (2024), announced its next film—Maine Pyar Kiya. The makers released a motion teaser of the flick on Friday, 28 June.

The motion teaser of Maine Pyar Kiya gives a glimpse into a rivalry between a Tamilian gangster and three Malayali youngsters involved in an elopement from Tamil Nadu to Kerala.

The romantic comedy marks the debut of Faizal Faziludeen as a director in the Malayalam industry. Interestingly, Faizal penned the script along with Blk Fzl.

Sanju Unnithan is producing Maine Pyar Kiya and Don Paul P is handling the cinematography. The editing is by Kannan Mohan and the music is composed by Ajmal Hasbulla. Renganaath Ravee is overseeing the sound design.

Spire Productions’ previous venture Mandakini, released on 24 May, featured Althaf Salim and Anarkali Marikar in the lead roles. The Malayalam movie pulled crowds to theatres after evoking a positive response.

Mandakini is a feel-good film based on a wedding. The confusion that happens on the wedding night after the bride accidentally consumes alcohol forms its crux.

Anarkali Marikar played the leading lady (Ambili) and Althaf Salim played the male lead (Aromal) in this Vinod Leela film.

Mandakini also starred a group of female actors who played crucial roles in the plot and took centre stage. It also highlighted how women must stand up for women. Debutant director Vinod Leela presented the whole affair in a light-hearted way rather than being preachy.

Spire Productions earlier bankrolled Aabhaasam (2018) and Paapam Cheyyathavar Kalleriyatte (2020). Both films had a different treatment.

Aabhaasam, directed by Jubith Namradath was a social satellite that broke the stereotypes. Shambu Purushothaman’s Paapam Cheyyathavar Kalleriyatte was a well-crafted satire.
