What can travel do? It could give you a sense of joy, self-realization, or, worse, back pain. But what if travel lets you enter a world of illusion and question your identity? A trip from Velankanni to Kerala causes a Malayali named James to awaken as Sundaram, a Tamil. Is it real, or is he in a trance? Is it a weird dream?

Directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery, the film stars Mammootty, Ashokan, and Ramya Pandian. It releases in theaters on 19 January.
