Alphonse Puthren rose to fame with Premam (2015), a definitive ‘entry-point movie’ to get pleasure from Malayalam cinema after Anjali Menon’s Bangalore Days (2014). The sturdy non-Malayali following for Premam created an enormous expectation throughout states for Puthren’s Gold, his comeback movie after seven years. With an ensemble forged together with Prithviraj Sukumaran and Nayanthara, Gold was scheduled to be an Onam particular launch. To whet curiosity, the makers launched virtually nothing aside from an introductory teaser and it labored. Expectations and curiosity spiked sharply, just for the plans to fall flat. Out of the blue, the movie was yanked out of the discharge schedule with out clarification. Rumours began floating that all the movie had received misplaced, that the footage had been deleted by mistake (weird, proper?).
