Shattered and hopeless, he smuggles himself back from Dubai to Kerala in the midst of a global pandemic and shuts himself from society. Deeply stuck in an emotional turmoil and while killing himself softly and slowly, Sunny befriends a couple of curious strangers over the course of seven days, who change his perspective. Paired with the most soulful background score the film has in store a perfect blend of drama and suspense, right till the end, promising to be a great watch.
“Sunny is a riveting story of a musician who finds himself in an emotional crisis, and how a sudden turn of events and interactions with complete strangers help him rekindle hope and joy,” said the Actor and Producer of the film, Jayasurya. “This is my 100th film as an actor and I couldn’t be more humbled to play yet another striking character. I have had a prolific partnership with Ranjith throughout, and this one is truly special. I am beyond happy that my 100th film is going to premiere on Amazon Prime Video and will reach a global audience across 240 countries.”
Further adding director Ranjith said, “Sunny is a film that’s extremely close to my heart. The unique narrative focuses on one single character and I couldn’t be happier to have an actor like Jayasurya to bring out this character so exceptionally well. The film is replete with human emotions that we have carefully woven into the script, which the audiences will relate to. I am hopeful that viewers will appreciate our film and I am really looking forward to its premiere on Amazon Prime Video which will help us showcase our work to a global audience.”
