Nivin Pauly and Biju Menon to team up for Thuramukham
As reported by us recently, Nivin Pauly is joining hands with director Rajeev Ravi teaming up for a movie titled ‘Thuramukham’. As the title suggests, the movie is revolves around a harbour and the lives of coastal people. We hear that it is a story set in the Cochin harbour in the early 1950s. Nivin Pauly will be playing a challenging role in the film, which is based on real life events.
As per latest reports, the makers have roped in Biju Menon to play a crucial role in the movie. If it turns out to be true, this will be Biju Men’s first film with Nivin. It will be interesting to see the two actors together on screen. The movie already has Nimisha Sajayan as the female lead. Just like her earlier films, her role in ‘Thuramukham’ is also said to be a performance-oriented one.
‘Thuramukham’ is based on the historic protests against the inhuman ‘chappa’ system, wherein copper coins were thrown to waiting workers in a primitive ‘work guarantee’ scheme, which had resulted in police firing and martyrdom of three labourers in Mattancherry.
KM Chidambaran had earlier written a play named ‘Thuramukham’. Rajeev Ravi’s movie is supposedly inspired from this play. The playwright’s son, Gopan Chidambaram, a scenarist, who has previously co-written ‘Iyobinte Pusthakam’, is reportedly scripting the movie.
Shoot is expected to commence soon after Nivin wraps up his ongoing commitments. An official announcement with details regarding the cast and crew will be made soon.
