Expectations are high for ‘Kumbalangi Nights’ considering the reunion of the trio of Fahadh Faasil, Dileesh Pothan and Syam Pushkaran.

While their roles were different in the earlier two films, ‘Kumbalangi Nights’ has them as producers.
Syam Pushkaran along with Dileesh Pothan have launched a new production house named Working Class Hero and ‘Kumbalangi Nights’ is their maiden venture. They are producing it jointly with Fahadh Faasil’s banner Fahadh Faasil and Friends. The movie, according to the makers, is a modern family drama set in Kumbalangi, a suburb in the city of Kochi.
Soubin, Shane Nigam, Sreenath Bhasi and Mathew Thomas play brothers in the movie while Fahadh Faasil will be seen as the villain. The movie has camera handled by Shyju Khalid, music by Sushin Shyam and edits by Saiju Sreedharan.
