Chandini Sreedharan paired opposite Tovino Thomas in Theevandi
Tovino Thomas is very busy these days with multiple projects in his kitty. The actor’s last release Tharangam, a black comedy directed by debutant Dominic Arun was an average grosser. His new film Theevandi with debutant Fellini TP was announced recently on November 1, the Kerala Piravi day.
August Cinema, one of the leading banners in Malayalam film industry, is funding this movie. Theevandi is a political satire written by Vini Viswalal. Tovino is playing the role of a lazy unemployed youngster named Bineesh.
Chandini Sreedharan, who made her Malayalam debut in 2015 with Unni Mukundan’s KL 10 is paired opposite Tovino in Theevandi. Her performance in Prithviraj’s Dariwnte Parinamam was also noted by the audience. The pretty actress was last seen in a brief but integral role in Amal Neerad’s Dulquer Salmaan starrer CIA aka Comrade In America.
In Theevandi, Chandini plays the role of a government employee. She cleared the state’s PSC test and landed a job in a village office. This is her first film with Tovino and their on-screen chemistry is something exciting to look forward to.
Suraj Venjaramoodu, Saiju Kurup and Surabhi Lakshmi are also part of the movie’s supporting cast. Kailas Menon composes the music and cinematography is handled by newcomer Gautham Sankar.
Tovino is currently awaiting the release of his Tamil-Malayalam bilingual Abhiyude Kadha Anuvinteyum ( Abhiyum Anuvum in Tamil). Aashiq Abu’s romantic flick Maayanadhi will be his next release in Malayalam. Vishnu Narayanan’s Maradona, Dhanush starrer Maari 2 are some of his other films in the pipeline.
