Today, Amazon Prime released the Home trailer, a new Malayalam comedy-drama directed by Rojin Thomas. The film stars Vijay Babu, Manju Pillai, Naslen, Kainakary Thankaraj, KPAC Lalitha, Srikanth Murali, Johny Antony, Pauly Wilson, Maniyan Pillai Raju, Anoop Menon, Aju Varghese, Kiran Aravindhakshan, Chithra and Priyanka Nair.
Home trailer, which was released under the banner of Friday Film House, gives a glimpse into the world of Oliver Twist (portrayed by Indrans), a humble, technologically challenged father who struggles to bond with his grown-up sons as they drift apart and become engrossed in the world of social media. It is a light-hearted family film set in contemporary times that will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video on August 19th and will be available in 240 countries and territories.
In a statement, veteran Actor Indrans who plays the role of Oliver Twist in the Malayalam movie Home, said, “I could completely relate to Oliver’s character. Just like him, I am not comfortable with technology and social media in real life. What really appealed to me about Home is that it highlights the generation gap between parents and their children.”
Indrans also shared, “The film is a contemporary and simple take on the most relatable issue that families deal with these days; that of a father trying hard to be his son’s best friend and to be a part of his world, while overcoming some hurdles, in this case- technology. The film is like a breath of fresh air that will keep viewers emotionally engrossed till the very end.”
About working with Vijay Babu, Indrans shared, “Vijay Babu and I go back a long way and I have always enjoyed working with him. Reuniting with him for #Home was truly a homecoming experience.”

Actor Sreenath Bhasi, who plays the role of Oliver Twist’s elder son, Anthony, said, “Home will make you question the importance and attention we give to our relationships. It is much more than the technology-challenges our parents face. I found this pervasive thought in the story extremely appealing. My character is like any of those thousands of millennials who are totally engrossed and lost in the chaos of a modern-day, social media and tech-savvy world.”
The actor further stated, “The film navigates through an emotional and heart-warming story of a father-son duo who juggle to adjust between each other’s lifestyle and find a common ground. I am certain that the film will take the audience on a roller-coaster of emotions.”
Director Rojin Thomas earlier said, “#Home is an attempt at depicting a much relevant topic in today’s times, the dynamics of a family unknowingly trapped in the artificial web in the ever-evolving digital age.”
