He wrote, “Clarification on the news circulating on social media regarding the release of 'Manjummel Boys' on OTT platforms: The claim that #ManjummelBoys will be streaming from April 5th is false, according to the producers. It is expected to be released mostly in May 2024.”

Take a look at the tweet here.

However, a report by News18 mentions that the film will start streaming on the OTT giant from May 3 onwards.

Starring Soubin Shahir, Ganapathi, Sreenath Bhasi, and Balu Varghese, ‘Manjummel Boys’ revolves around a group of boys from Kochi who decide to take a trip to the Guna Caves in Kodaikanal. However, their trip takes a different turn when one of their friends gets stuck in the caves. In an earlier interview with OTT Play, the director mentioned that he did not dramatize a lot of the scenes. Chidambaram said, “It was a physically exhausting film- mentally as well. We were shooting in Kodaikanal at low temperatures. Our shooting windows were also limited, as in we had to start by 5 am and wrap it up by 9 am because we were shooting in a forest, and it was also a high-traffic tourist place. Those limitations were there. Additionally, the actors had to perform while being drenched in the cold rain. We were away from home for a long time and that also works on your mind. So, it was physically and psychologically draining.”

The makers of the film have not officially confirmed this news as of now. It has raked in over Rs 100 crores at the box office.
