The teaser from Mohanlal starrer magnum opus 'Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham' was released yesterday and it lived up to the grandeur promised for the Mollywood audience. The teaser features Kunjali Marakkar IV (Mohanlal) who vows to protect his motherland from the shadow of the foreigners. The only dialogue Marakkar says is, "Our land which has provided us everything to grow is like our own mother. And we could only refer ourselves as men, only if we chop off the legs of those who dare to invade our motherland," which proves his courage and love for the land where he is born. Mohanlal pulls off the role of Kunjali Marakkar IV in a dashing avatar. Showing a glimpse of the magnum opus, the 40-second teaser is quite good enough to leave the audience impatient till the release.
