The makers of Archana 31 Not Out have released the film’s final trailer ahead of its release on Friday. Aishwarya Lekshmi plays the eponymous character in the film helmed by debutant Akhil Anilkumar.
Scripted by Akhil, Archana 31 Not Out presents Aishwarya as a 28-year-old teacher. The quirky entertainer also features Ramesh Pisharody and Indrans in pivotal roles. Akhil is notable for directing the popular short film Devika +2 Biology.
“It is a clean, feel-good, female-oriented comedy,” says debutant director and Archana 31 Not Out’s co-writer Akhil Anilkumar, whom Aishwarya refers to in her post as the “quirkiest. “I’ve always heard this said about my work and yes, it is a quirky, slice of life movie,” says the 24-year-old director, laughing. As suggested in the poster, the film is centred around a wedding – the honeymoon night, in fact – but does not have a male lead.
