Here’s a new poster from Mammootty’s Uncle!!
The eagerly awaited Mammootty starrer Uncle is reportedly gearing up to hit screens by the end of this month. After the excellent response for the teaser, the makers have released a new poster from the movie. Actor Joy Mathew has scripted Uncle, which marks the directorial debut of Gireesh Damodar, a former associate of Ranjith and Padmakumar.
Uncle is Joy Mathew’s second outing as a scriptwriter after the critically acclaimed ‘Shutter’. Just like his previous movie, Uncle will also be a socially relevant film. It is the story of a 17-year-old girl and her dad’s friend. CIA fame Karthika Muraleedharan and Mammootty play these two lead roles in the movie.
Reportedly, the core plot is set in the journey of Mammootty’s character Krishnakumar aka KK from Ooty to Kozhikode. He is accompanied by his friend’s daugther in this trip. It is about an unusual situation a middle class family is made to face. The social and political setting of Kerala is of much prominence in the movie.
Mammootty will be seen in a different role altogether in the movie. He is sporting a salt and pepper bearded look for his character, which is said to be a grey shaded one. Expectations are high for this movie among the audience since Mammootty is playing such a performance-oriented character after a long gap.
Uncle also stars Joy Mathew, Muthumani, Asha Sharath, Vinay Forrt, Suresh Krishna, Kailash, KPAC Lalitha and Sheela in supporting roles. Its technical crew includes veteran cinematographer Azhagappan, composer Bijibal and editor Shameer Muhammed.
Joy Mathew and Sajai Sebastian are jointly funding the movie under their banners of Abra Films International and SJ Films.
