About Premalu

Premalu tells the story of Sachin, played by Naslen and Reenu, played by Mamitha, navigating adulthood, including love, friendships and career. The film shows two Malayalis migrating to Hyderabad for their careers, meeting and eventually falling in love. Sangeeth Prathap as Amal Davis aka Amul Baby, Shyam Mohan as Aadhi and Mathew Thomas as Thomas also received accolades for their performances, apart from the lead actors.

Given that the film ends with Sachin heading to the UK for further studies and Reenu staying back in Hyderabad for her career, with the duo deciding they’ll make it work long-distance, it remains to be seen how the filmmakers will take the story forward. Premalu 2 will be released in Malayalam, Telugu and Tamil in 2025. A release date is yet to be announced.
