Back to back releases for Tovino Thomas next month!
Tovino Thomas has an impressive line up of films in his kitty. His Tamil-Malayalam bilingual movie Abiyude Katha Anuvinteyum hit screens last Friday (May 25). He still has two more films gearing up for release. Maradona and Theevandi are the two releases coming up for Tovino. If reports are to be believed, both these movies will be releasing back to back in a week’s gap.
Maradona directed by debutant Vishnu Narayan will be the first to hit screens. The movie has been slated for release on June 22. Krishnamoorthy, who has previously assisted Lijo Jose Pellissery and Dileesh Pothan, has scripted this movie. ‘Angamaly Diaries’ actors Kichu Tellus, Tito Wilson and Chemban Vinod Jose will be seen in major roles. Newbie Sharanya R Nair is playing the female lead opposite Tovino. Leona Lishoy, Niranjan, Jins Bhaskar and Nishthar Ahamed are also part of the supporting cast. Its technical crew includes cinematographer Deepak D Menon, composer Sushin Shyam and editor Saiju Sreedharan. Maradona is being produced by S Vinod Kumar under the banner of Mini Studio.
Debutant TP Fellini is directing Theevandi which has Tovino playing a chain smoker. The movie scripted by another newcomer, Vini Viswa Lal, is a political satire. Tovino plays the role of a lazy unemployed youngster named Bineesh in this movie. Samyukhtha Menon is paired opposite Tovino. A romantic song ‘Jeevamshamayi’ featuring the lead pair has become a sensational hit and thus helping in publicizing the movie among the general audience. Kailas Menon is handling the music department. August Cinema, one of the leading banners in Malayalam film industry, is funding this movie. Official announcement regarding the release date has not yet been made but buzz is that Theevandi will hit screens on June 28.
