‘Joseph’ writer Shahi Kabir’s next with Tovino titled ‘Aaravam’
Joju George starrer ‘Joseph’ was one of the most acclaimed films in Malayalam last year. The movie’s screenplay by Shahi Kabir, a real life policeman, was appreciated by critics and commoners alike. Now the writer is set to team up with young star Tovino Thomas for a movie titled ‘Aaravam’. Debutant Jithu Ashraf will be directing the movie, title poster of which was shared online last day. The poster is designed like a ‘chundan vallam’, so we presume the plot is set in Kuttanad and surrounding areas.
‘Aaravam’ has a formidable technical crew. Abhinandan Ramanjunam, well known for his excellent work in ‘Amen’, ‘Mosayile Kuthira Meenukal’ and the recently released ‘9’, will be cranking the camera. Jyothish Shankar is the art director and Renganaath Ravee will be handling the sound design. Haseeb Haneef, Aji Medayil and Noushad Alathur are jointly producing the movie under the banners of Achicha Films and Malayalam Movie Makers. Details regarding the supporting cast and when shoot commences will be announced shortly.
Tovino Thomas meanwhile is busy shooting for ‘Luca’. After that he will be joining the sets of ‘Kalki’, a mass entertainer in which he will be playing a cop. ‘Uyare, ‘And The Oscar Goes To’, ‘Virus’ and ‘Kilometers and Kilometers’ are his other upcoming films.
