Even as Mammootty’s Kaathal-The Core is gearing up for an OTT release, the Malayalam movie is still running successfully in 60 theatres across Kerala. Though it was appreciated well for showcasing the issues of the queer community, not all community members seem to be happy with the movie. In an exclusive chat with South First, the queer community in Kerala shared their candid opinions about the Mammootty-starrer. Anagh, who appeared in the movie as a representative of an NGO working for queer people, considers Kaathal-The Core a positive step towards enlightening society about queer issues. As a queer person, he says the movie is a welcome change in an industry where Chanthupottu (2005) was released.
