Unlike my earlier films, Vijay Superum Pournamiyum has a very relevant message in it: Director Jis Joy
Asif Ali’s next titled Vijay Superum Pournamiyum went on floors last week. Jis Joy is directing this movie, his third with Asif after Bicycle Thieves and Sunday Holidays. Aishwarya Lekshmi, who won hearts with her performance in Mayaanadhi, is paired with Asif in this movie. AK Sunil is producing the movie under the banner of New Surya Films.
According to Jis Joy, Vijay Superum Pournmaiyum, unlike his earlier films, will be a socially reverent one with a strong message in it. The director himself has scripted the movie with good dose of humour, friendship, romance and family sentiments. The movie has Asif playing an engineering graduate while Aishwarya plays his friend, Pournami, an MBA student.
The makers had initially signed Mamta Mohandas to play the female lead but she opted out due to some unknown reason. Aishwarya Lekshmi’s performance in Njandukalude Naatil Oridavela and Mayaanadhi has helped her bag this role. Asif and Aishwarya are teaming up for the first time, so their on-screen chemistry will be a refreshing one.
Vijay Superum Pournmaiyum also stars Siddique, Renji Panicker, Shanthi Krishna and KPAC Lalitha, Balu Varghese, Arjun Ashokan and Aju Varghese in supporting roles. Its technical crew includes cinematographer Ranadive of ‘CIA’ fame, editor Ratheesh and music director Prince. Shoot for the movie is currently progressing in Kochi. Goa is another major location.
