Vikrithi censored with clean U certificate; All set for release
‘Vikrithi’ starring Suraj Venjaramoodu and Soubin Shahir in the lead roles is getting ready to hit screens next month. The film has been censored with a clean U certificate and it is now set for release on October 4 (Friday). Debutant Ajeesh P Thomas has scripted the film and is directed by Emcy Joseph.
Thanks to the good response to the trailer and songs, ‘Vikrithi’ has a positive buzz in social medias. The film is inspired from a real life incident. Couple of years back, there was an incident when a middle-aged man was seen sleeping casually on the seats of Kochi metro. Assuming him to be a drunkard, some of the fellow passengers took his photos and shared it online. It soon went viral but only to be later learnt that the man was hearing-impaired and had lied down on the seat as he was tired. When news came out about his real condition, it was a moment of big collective embarrassment for the Malayali social media circle. ‘Vikrithi’ is inspired from this incident. In the film, Suraj Venjaramoodu essays the disabled person’s role and Soubin plays the role of the guy who took his photos.
A D Sreekumar, Ganesh Menon and Lakshmi Warrier are jointly producing the film under the banner of Cut 2 Create Pictures. Century Films will be presenting the movie in Kerala.
