Rajeev Ravi promises a lot with back to back releases
Six years after the release of ‘Kammattipaadam’, director Rajeev Ravi is set to have two releases in the space of a week. While ‘Kuttavum Shikshayum’, an investigative thriller is set to hit screens on May 27, the long-delayed multi-starrer ‘Thuramukham’ will release on June 3. Incidentally, both the films are based on real-life incidents and have high expectations among cinephiles.
‘Kuttavum Shikshayum’ stars Asif Ali, Sunny Wayne, Sharafudheen, Alencier Ley Lopez and Senthil Krishna as the leads. The film is inspired from the true incident of a jewellery robbery that occured in Kasargod in 2015. The case took a 5-member team from the Kerala police force to a dreaded village in Uttar Pradesh where they risked their lives to arrest the culprits. Sibi Thomas, the policeman who headed the real investigation, has scripted the film along with journalist Sreejith Divakaran. Asif Ali, Sunny Wayne, Sharafudheen, Alencier Ley Lopez and Senthil Krishna play cops in the film.
‘Thuramukham’ starring Nivin Pauly in the lead is set in the Mattanchery of the 40s and 50s. It is based on the historic protests against the inhuman ‘chappa’ system, wherein copper coins were thrown at waiting workers in a primitive work guarantee scheme. Gopan Chidambaran has scripted the film based on his father KM Chidambaran’s play of the same name.
‘Thuramukham’ has a big star cast comprising of actors like Indrajith Sukumaran, Arjun Ashokan, Joju George, Nimisha Sajayan, Poornima Indrajith, Sudev Nair, and Darshana Rajendran in important roles.
