Abi & Anu looks like Tovino Thomas’ first full length romantic movie
We had reported about Tovino Thomas, Mollywood’s one of the most promising young actor, doing a Malayalam/Tamil bilingual film. The first title and first look poster was unveiled last day. The movie is titled Abi & Anu and the first look poster features Tovino and Pia Bajpai in it.
Abi & Anu marks the directorial debut of cinematographer BR Vijayalakshmi. She is noted for being Asia’s first woman cinematographer. She has worked in several popular films as DOP and has also scripted the Malayalam movie Daddy, which had Arvind Swamy in the lead.
Abi & Anu is said to be based on a true incident that happened in Brazil. Tovino has already shown in potential in playing tough roles with his performance in films like 7th Day, ABCD, Guppy and Style. Humour also comes naturally to him as we have seen in films like You Too Brutus and Godha.
Abi & Anu will be his first attempt in playing a full length romantic character. Looks like the audience will get to see another unexplored side of this highly promising actor. Veteran actors Prabhu, Suhasini and Rohini are playing supporting roles in this movie. Shoot has already been completed. The team shot extensively in various parts of Kerala and Chennai.
Ace cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Santhosh Sivan is serving as an executive producer for this movie. It is funded under the banner of Yoodle Films and is slated to hit screens on September 22.
