Nearly 4 months after the teaser trailer for ‘Kurup’ premiered, we rundown the release date, plot, casting and dubbing for the upcoming movie.
The official teaser trailer for ‘Kurup’, the upcoming action-thriller movie based on the notorious criminal Sukumara Kurup, released back in late July on YouTube.
The 40-second clip quickly began racking up views and at the time of writing, has been watched more than 1.8 million times.
However, many fans still have plenty of questions, including what date the movie will release, what the plot is and who has been cast?
Kurup movie release date…
- At the time of writing, Kurup doesn’t have an official release date, despite some websites claiming it will premiere on Tuesday, December 1st, 2020.
Multiple websites and fan-made YouTube videos have claimed that Kurup will release on the first day of December.
However, the teaser video and official Instagram posts have only stated that the movie is “coming soon” – refusing to specify a more accurate premiere window.
Lead actor Dulquer Salmaan tweeted in July that the team were putting “the finishing touches on Kurup”, indicating that filming has concluded and that the post-production editing is almost done too.
There have been reports on Twitter that more information on the movie could be released later this evening or tomorrow morning, along with the confirmation that Kurup will premiere on OTT.
This article will be updated as soon as more information on Kurup’s release date is revealed by official sources, so keep checking in.
Kurup movie plot…
The Kurup movie is based on the notorious criminal Sukumara Kurup, who committed murder in the 1980s and still remains at large today.
In 1984, a film representative called Chacko was strangled to death and his body was burnt inside a car near Kunnam in Mavelikara. It is alleged that Sukumara Kurup used this to commit insurance fraud to the tune of INR 800,000 ($75,000) – a lot of money in 1984.
Kurup is said to have fled to country and to this day, has not been arrested by police. The Kurup – Chacho case remains one of the longest-standing cases in the judicial history of Kerala.
Kurup movie cast…
The official cast list and character roles for Kurup have not been officially released, but the following are reported to feature in the upcoming movie:
- Dulquer Salmaan as Sukumara Kuruppu
- Sobhiya Dhulipala as unknown
- Manoj Bajpayee as unknown
- Tovino Thomas as Chacko (rumoured)

Kurup movie dubbing…

However, it is not unreasonable to assume that the movie will also be dubbed in other regional languages, but more information on this is expected to be announced soon.
