By the looks of it, Mohanlal's character may be somewhat of a corrupt politician. The intense teaser depicts Mohanlal walking in slow motion, as the priest's voice plays in the background advising Nedumpally to confess to all his sins. “If you will never come back again, then confess your sins and find peace before you leave.” Stephen replies, “I can only confess for the sins I have committed father, not for the ones I am about to commit." The exchange forms the main foundation of the teaser.

Mohanlal is then seen walking out of the courtroom in a vintage ambassador with number plate of 666, often considered the number of the devil.

Prithviraj recently posted a heartwarming message marking Mohanlal's shooting wrap.

Produced by Antony Perumbavoor and written by Murali Gopy of Left Right Left and Ee Adutha Kaalathu-fame, Lucifer also features Vivek Oberoi, Indrajith Sukumaran, Tovino Thomas, Manju Warrier and Kalabhavan Shajohn among others.

Lucifer is expected to hit theatres in March 2019. Watch the teaser here.
