The teaser for the Malayalam film Lucifer, starring Mohanlal and directed by Prithviraj, was released online by actor Mammooty on Thursday.
In the teaser, Mohanlal's character Stephen Nedumpally is seen walking out of a corridor line with the policemen, as he is exhorted by a priest to confess his sins.
"I can only confess to sins I have committed, father, not the ones I'm about to commit," Nedumpally says.

Written by Murali Gopy, the film also stars Manju Warrier, Tovino Thomas, Vivek Oberoi and Indrajith
The film is Prithviraj's directorial debut. On the eve of the teaser launch, he tweeted that directing Mohanlal has been the highlight of his career. "Thank you Lalettan for believing in me," he wrote.
Prithviraj, son of noted Malayalam actor, late Sukumaran, made his acting debut in 2002 in Nandanam, and has over 80 films to his credit, including Celluloid and Ennu Ninte Moideen.
