Alphonse Puthren’s next film titled Gift; Ilaiyaraaja to compose music


Alphonse Puthren on Tuesday announced his upcoming film. The movie has been titled Gift. The director took to social media to make the announcement. He also shared a poster of the Tamil film.

Sharing the poster on Twitter, Puthren wrote, “#GIFT.”

Gift stars Sandy, Kovai Sarala, Sahana Sarvesh, Sampath Raj, Raahul, Charlie, Raichal Rabecca, Crawford, Gopalan Palakkad and Cycle Mani. The movie, bankrolled by Romeo Pictures, has already gone on floors.

The music of the film will be composed by Ilaiyaraaja. In April this year, Alphonse Puthren had shared that he will be collaborating with the legendary music director. Sharing a photo, the director had written, “While Met the ‘Raaja of Tamil Music’ Maestro Ilaiyaraja sir the third time, a few days back. This time I dint forget to take the photo. I don’t need to explain about him. Will be collaborating with Maestro Ilaiyaraja sir for a film, after my upcoming film with Romeo Pictures.”

Gift marks Puthren’s return to the Tamil film industry. His first film Neram (2013) was a Malayalam-Tamil bilingual. He also helmed the segment Eli in the Tamil anthology Aviyal (2016).

Alphonse Puthren’s last film Gold, starring Prithviraj Sukumaran, Nayanthara, Deepti Sati, Mallika Sukumaran, Shammi Thilakan, Lalu Alex, Baburaj, Ajmal Ameer, Shanthi Krishna and Jagadish, among others, had released in December last year to poor reviews. Gold was his much-awaited comeback to the Malayalam film industry after a gap of seven years, and there was a lot of expectations from it. However, the film failed to impress the audience, unleashing a barrage of online abuse against Puthren.
