Tovino’s upcoming projects

Tovino Thomas’s recent movie Nadikar (2024) was one of the most-anticipated projects of the year. However, it couldn’t keep up with the expectations of the audience.

The movie, directed by Lal Jr, wasn’t a commercial hit and is awaiting its OTT release.

Meanwhile, Tovino’s Anweshippin Kandethum, released early this year, impressed one and all. The thriller, directed by Darwin Kuriakose, did well in theatres.

Nevertheless, the tremendous success of Premalu and Manjummel Boys overshadowed the performance of Anweshippin Kandethum.

Meanwhile, Tovino Thomas has an interesting lineup of films this year.

His 3D movie, Ajayante Randam Moshanam under the direction of Jitin Lal, will see the actor in triple roles for the first time.

Directors duo Anas Khan-Akhil Paul’s Identity is under the post-production state. It stars Tamil actor Trisha as the female lead.

The Malayalam actor is also part of Mohanlal-starrer L2: Empuraan, directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran.

Later, he will work for Saiju Sreedharan’s Munpe.

Tovino is also producing actor-director Basil Joseph‘s Marana Mass.
