Aaravam: Tovino’s new film is based on Vallamkali
Recently, it was announced that Tovino Thomas would be starring in a movie titled ‘Aaravam’. The movie will be directed by debutant Jithu Ashraf and scripted by Shahi Kabir, who also penned the superhit Joju George starrer ‘Joseph’. While that film was a crime drama revolving around the life of a retired policeman, ‘Aaravam’ is said to be a sports flick. The movie is based on ‘vallamkali’ (snake boat race) and centred around the boat race community. It must be noted that the title poster has been designed like a ‘chundan vallam’.
‘Aaravam’ has a good technical crew. Abhinandan Ramanjunam, well known for his work in films like ‘Amen’, ‘Mosayile Kuthira Meenukal’ and the recently released ‘9’, has been signed as the cinematographer. Jyothish Shankar is the art director and Renganaath Ravee will be handling the sound design. Haseeb Haneef, Aji Medayil and Noushad Alathur are jointly producing the movie under the banners of Malayalam Movie Makers and Achicha Films. The makers are yet to inform about when the movie goes on floors.
Tovino Thomas is currently busy shooting for ‘Luca’. After that he will be joining the sets of ‘Kalki’, a mass entertainer in which he plays a cop. ‘Uyare, ‘And The Oscar Goes To’, ‘Virus’ and ‘Kilometers and Kilometers’ are his other upcoming films.
