Rajisha Vijayan’s Kho Kho gets a release date!
It has been announced that Rajisha Vijayan’s new film ‘Kho Kho’ will be hitting screens on April 14 as a Vishu release. The film is written and directed by Rahul Riji Nair of ‘Ottamuri Velicham’ fame. His last film ‘Kalla Nottam’ recently won the National award for Best Feature Film in Malayalam.
‘Kho Kho’ is a sports-based film that has Rajisha playing the role of a Kho Kho coach. It is a traditional Indian sport, which is also played across South Asia and some parts of South Africa and England. It is probably the first time that a film based on Kho Kho is being made in mainstream Indian cinema. Some original Kho Kho players are also acting in the film.
‘Kho Kho’ has cinematography by Tobin Thomas and music by Sidhartha Pradeep. Editor-turned-filmmaker Appu Bhattathiri is the post-production supervisor and edits are done by Christy Sebastian. The film is being produced under the banner of First Print Studios.
