About the movie

  • The film is a political satire with right doses of comedy
  • Ragini Nandwani plays an Anglo Indian love interest of Mohan Lal
  • The film has been extensively shot across America
  • Peruchazhi is the first Malayalam film to have been shot at the famous Universal Studios in the Hollywood US


The film is scheduled to release on 29 August 2014 in about 500 screens worldwide, which is the highest release ever by a Malayalam film.

Mohanlal and Mukesh play two close personal friends as well as bitter political foes at the same time. 'Peruchazhi' plots the political tricks and games between Viswanathan (Mohanlal), an upcoming politician and Minister Raghavan (Mukesh).

Meanwhile Viswanahan has to go to America during an election. The political graph of one of the Governors who is a candidate in the election is at an all time low and Viswanathan's purpose is to make the graph soars high and to make this Governor victorious.

Though Viswanathan knows all the tricks, he does not know English. 'Peruchazhi' hilariously picturizes Viswanathan's American adventures and Minister Raghavan's efforts to counter Viswanathan's tricks. For complete story... please watch the movie in theaters.
