Porinju Mariam Jose: All eyes set on Joshiy’s massive comeback film!
In a career spanning over forty years, director Joshiy has seen several highs and lows. Though he predominantly worked in Malayalam, Joshiy has also directed a few hit films in Hindi and Tamil. Forget about working with big stars, it was Joshiy who was instrumental in elevating most of them to the superstar status. While almost all his contemporary filmmakers have waned out, the veteran is still trying to reinvent himself. If the trailer of his new film, ‘Porinju Mariam Jose’ is anything to go by, Joshiy still has it in him to give the new gen filmmakers a run for their money.
‘Porinju Mariam Jose’ is hitting screens tomorrow (August 23) and everyone is eager to see what the master has in store this time. His last few films have been failures, so that makes the scenario even bigger. Starring Joju George, Chemban Vinod Jose and Nyla Usha in the lead roles, ‘Porinju Mariam Jose’ is expected to be a well packaged mass-entertainer — a genre that is slowly diminishing in Malayalam.
Abilash N Chandran has scripted the film that is set in Thrissur of the 80s. Like the yesteryear Joshiy films, it has a huge set of supporting actors and has all the vibes of an action-packed mass flick. Its elaborate cast comprises of Kalabhavan Niyas, Jayaraj Warrier, Sudhi Koppa, IM Vijayan, Rahul Madhav, Anil Nedumangad, Salim Kumar, Nandu, Sinoj, TG Ravi, Vijayaraghavan, Maala Parvathy, Swasika and Malavika Menon.
On the technical front, Joshiy has assembled a set of young but highly promising team. Ajai David Kachappilly has cranked the camera and music is by Jakes Bejoy. Shyam Sasidharan has done the edits. Rejimon is producing the movie under the banner of Keerthy Movies.
