Madhupal opens up on why he opted for Tovino in ‘Oru Kuprasidha Payyan’
‘Oru Kuprasidha Payyan’ (OKP) is all set to hit screens on November 9. This Madhupal directorial has high expectations among the cinephiles as his earlier films ‘Ozhimuri’ and ‘Thalappavu’ were widely acclaimed ones. Compared to his earlier films, OKP will have more commercial appeal. While his earlier films had a veteran actor like Lal in the lead, OKP stars the hot and happening Tovino Thomas.
In a recent interview, Madhupal was asked about the reason behind casting Tovino. The director said, “Ajayan, the lead character in this movie has a dual nature. At times, he seems like someone who is not afraid of anyone but suddenly he moves into a shell and becomes nervous of everyone around him. There is always a contrasting nature in the character and I felt an actor like Tovino could portray it well.”
Of late, Tovino has been part of many hit films and his performances have also been noted. He is said to have delivered a very nuanced act in OKP. The actor has also done some terrific stunts in the film. Scripted by Jeevan Job Thomas, the movie is a mystery thriller centered around a murder investigation.
Along with Tovino, OKP has an elaborate supporting cast comprising of Anu Sithara, Nimisha Sajayan, Saranya Ponvannan, Lijomol Jose, Nedumudi Venu, Siddique, Dileesh Pothan, Sujith Sankar, Alencier Ley Lopez, Sudheer Karamana, Saiju Kurup and Balu Varghese. V Cinema is producing the movie and it will be released by Sre Priya Combines.
