High octane action sequences in Dulquer Salmaan’s CIA
Dulquer Salmaan’s next release CIA is in the final stages of post production. The movie, directed by Amal Neerad is expected to hit screens this summer. It is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and it’s evident from the pre-release buzz.
Amal Neerad and Dulquer Salmaan have earlier worked together in Kullante Bharya, a portion in 5 Sundarikal, an anthology of five short films. It was a stark contrast from Amal Neerad’s previous movies. But CIA will be a mass entertainer with Amal Neerad’s trademark touch of stylish filmmaking. Dulquer commands a huge fan following and when the two join, it is certain to spin big numbers at the box office.
Amal Neerad recently revealed that Mark Chavarria, the action choreographer of Hollywood movies like Inception, Pearl Harbour and Terminator has worked for the stunts in CIA. Mark Chavarria is also part of Hugh Jackman’s latest superhero movie, Logan.
CIA will have some high octane action sequences. Anl Arasu has also choreographed an action block in the movie. CIA is a story about Aji Mathew, a Pala based youngster who travels to US in pursuit of his girlfriend. A major portion of the movie is set in the US.
The team had shot a riveting action block in Kottayam during the first schedule last year. Anl Arasu is said to have choreographed this action block. Mark Chavarria has worked in the US schedule where the team shot for some stunt scenes with foreign artists. Shooting spot stills from the US schedule where shared by the team in their official Facebook page.
Amal Neerad is known to be the most stylish filmmaker in Mollywood. So, when a Hollywood technician is collaborating with him and that too with a star like Dulquer Salmaan in the helm of things, it will be nothing short of a cracker.
Debutante Karthika Muraleedharan has played the female lead in the movie while Soubin Shahir, John Vijay and Jinu Joseph are also part of the cast.
CIA is written by Shibin Francis who has previously scripted Prithviraj Sukumaran’s super hit movie Paavada. Amal Neerad’s long time associate Ranadive has handled the cinematography while Gopi Sunder is composing the songs and background score for the movie.
The movie is jointly produced by director Amal Neerad and Anwar Rasheed, for their banners Amal Neerad Productions and Anwar Rasheed Entertainment.
