Chathur Mukham, directed by Rajneet Kamala Sankar and Salil V released on April 8. The techno horror film is written by Abhayakumar K and Anil Kurian. Chathur Mukham’s star cast includes Sunny Wayne, Alencier Ley Lopes, Niranjana Anoop, Shyamaprasad and Rony David.

Thanking the audience, Warrier said in a social media post that the family audiences’ reception for the film was beyond their expectations. She said that the film had been running to packed theatres but there was a need to strengthen vigilance against Covid-19 in the state.
Chathur Mukham will be brought back to you when the spread of the disease is under control and public places are safe. Follow the protocols set by the government and stay safe,” she said.
Chathur Mukham’s technical crew consists of Manoj as the editor, Abinandhan Ramanujam as cinematographer, and Dawn Vincent as music composer. The film is produced by Jiss Toms and Justin Thomas under Jiss Toms Movies and Manju Warrier Productions.
The maker’s decision to withdraw the film comes on the day Kerala reported 26,995 positive cases of Covid-19, taking the total number of active cases to 1,56,226. The Kerala government on Monday ordered theatres and malls to shut down by 7:30 pm and imposed night curfew from 9 pm to 5 am from Tuesday for the next two weeks, to curb the spread of the virus.
