New Delhi: The National Award-winning movie Marakkar: Lion of the Arabian Sea happens to be a biopic based on Kunjali Marakkar the 4th, who is considered one of the greatest naval chiefs of India. It is the story of the epic war waged against the Portuguese invaders led by the fearless seafarer of the Malabar Coast who later became the naval commander of the Zamorin, the ruler of Calicut. 

South superstar Mohanlal plays the titular role in the film titled Marakkar: Lion of the Arabian Sea which is all set to stream on Amazon Prime Video in India starting December 17, 2021. It will be available in Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages respectively. Check out the top 5 reasons why Marakkar: Lion of the Arabian Sea should be on your watchlist:

Credited to be the most expensive film ever made in Malayalam cinema, Marakkar: Lion of the Arabian Sea bagged the Best Feature Film, Best Special Effects, and Best Costume awards at the 67th National Film Awards in October 2021.

Marakkar: Lion of the Arabian Sea has the magical duo of Mohanlal and Priyadarshan back with a bang. The cast also includes Arjun Sarja, Suniel Shetty,  Manju Warrier, Keerthy Suresh, the late Nedumudi Venu, and Pranav Mohanlal in pivotal roles. 

There’s no doubt that the film has the finest visual effects ever seen before, in an Indian film. The war and action sequences with stunning graphics and effects are nothing short of an experience. Award-winning production designer Sabu Cyril’s team has erected massive sets, which includes huge ships, palaces and villages. The visual effects seamlessly blend with the live-action photography, resulting in some spell-binding frames.

The film tells the story of Kunjali Marakkar, who is considered to be India’s first Naval Commander. The narrative is set in the late 15th and early 16th century and follows Kunjali Marakkar’s (Mohanlal) life. Kunjali flees to the wilderness after his family is brutally murdered and becomes a Robin Hood for the impoverished. The movie has been adapted from various novels and written texts about Kunjali Marakkar and is a lavishly mounted period drama.

This is a story that every Indian would feel proud of, as it tells the story of the legend of the Indian seas, who went on to inspire generations. Watching this real story come alive on the screen is an experience that will be remembered forever. This Malayalam magnum opus will also stream in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on Prime Video.
