Minnal Murali: Tovino’s superhero film with Basil Joseph to start rolling in December
As announced earlier, Tovino Thomas is set to reunite with his ‘Godha’ director Basil Joseph. The duo are teaming up for a movie titled as ‘Minnal Murali’. Interestingly, it is a local superhero flick that will have Tovino in the titular role. Since it is an unusual subject, the makers have been involved in the pre-production works for some time now. Director Basil has now informed that they will be starting shooting by December.
Basil Joseph is one of the most promising among the younger generation of filmmakers. He has already delivered back to back hits in ‘Kunjiramayanam’ and ‘Godha’. Though he had announced a big budget film with Mammootty and Tovino in the leads, the movie got shelved. He was also supposed to a film with Biju Menon, which has also been delayed. Basil has a knack for humour, which he had proven with his first two films. ‘Minnal Murali’ is also expected to be an out and out fun film. Sophia Paul of Weekend Blockbusters is producing the movie.
Tovino meanwhile has multiple projects coming up. ‘Kilometers and Kilometers’ directed by Jeo Baby and ‘Edakkad Battalion 06’ are his two films gearing up for release. Besides that, there are five more projects in his kitty.
