Suraj Venjaramoodu as Soubin Shahir’s father in Android Kunjappan
Debutant Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval’s ‘Android Kunjappan Version 5.25’ is a film that raised curiosity right from the time of its announcement. It is a film about robot-human interaction, something which has been attempted several times in Hollywood, but a first in Malayalam. The film’s posters have also been highly intriguing.
It is learnt that ‘Android Kunjappan Version 5.25’ is a family drama with a science fiction element in it. Soubin Shahir plays the role of a mechanical engineer and Suraj Venjaramoodu essays the role of his father. Though the two actors have worked together before, this is the first time they will be seen as a father-son duo.
Director Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval has previously worked as a production designer in Bollywood films like ‘Force’, ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’ and ‘Badhaai Ho’. For his directorial debut, he has got a formidable technical crew. Sanu John Varughese, who has worked in films like ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’, ‘Wazir’ and the ‘Vishwaroopam’ series is handling the camera. Bijibal is the music director and Saiju Sreedharan is editing the film.
Santhosh T Kuruvilla of Moonshot Entertainment is producing the film, which is scheduled to hit screens in November.
