Makers of the upcoming survival adventure film ‘The Goat Life’ on Thursday announced the film’s official release date. Directed by National Award Winner Blessy, ‘The Goat Life’ features actor Prithviraj Sukumaran in the lead role and is based on the novel Goat Days by Benyamin.
Taking to Instagram, Prithviraj shared a motion poster of the film which he captioned, “The greatest survival adventure. An unbelievably true story. Witness the extraordinary unravel!”
‘The Goat Life’ is all set to hit the theatres on April 10, 2024, in Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.
Produced by Visual Romance, and directed by National Award Winner Blessy, the film also features Hollywood actor Jimmy Jean-Louis, Amala Paul, Indian actor K.R.Gokul, and renowned Arab actors Talib al Balushi and RikAby in pivotal roles.
The movie is based on the novel ‘Aadujeevitham’, one of the most popular best sellers ever from the Malayalam literary world, which has been translated in 12 different languages, including those that are foreign.
Penned by noted writer Benyamin and it follows the true story of the life of a young man Najeeb, who in the early 90s migrates from the lush green shores of Kerala in search of the fortunes in a land abroad.
Speaking about this Indian film, director, Blessy said, “The greatest challenge in front of me was that The Goat Life is a subject with universal appeal and I would have to stay truthful to its narrative style. The novel is based on some real incidents and I want to captivate the viewers with each moment that something as unbelievable happened to someone. Truth has never been so much stranger than fiction. The scale of the movie demands to be felt within the confines of a theatre and we are excited to bring this magnum opus to audiences around the world.”
Apart from this, Prithviraj will be next seen in the action thriller film ‘Salaar’ alongside Prabhas and in ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ alongside Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff.
