Suresh Gopi- Shaji Kailas team is one of the best actor-director pair in Mollywood history when it comes to action films or political thriller type films. In fact both of them have a natural taste to create these type of films and they had done it successfully several times and we all have loved those films right from the very beginning of their association. And after a short break this team is coming together with the same kind of a film for which they are famous for and it had titled as Samsthanam and had started rolling as well. It is said to be a political thriller which shows us the current political scenario of our state and how it is manipulated by different forces operating here.
The flick was penned down by Rajesh Jayaraman and Suresh Gopi is playing the character named ADGP Ravi Varman in this flick. Apart from Suresh Gopi, artist like actress Sukanya, Siddique, Vijaya Raghavan, Saikumar, Vijaykumar, Renji Panicker, Sunil Sugatha, Biju Pappan, P Sreekumar, Suraj Venjarammoodu, Raj Mohan Unnithan, Aparna Nair, Sreedevi Unni, and Manuraj plays other major characters. There has been also some reports that controversial figure in Solar case named Saritha Nair may also play a role in this film even though it is doing its round in social media in the form of only a rumor. Earlier Shaji had announced a project with Mohanlal and Mammootty in the lead which was dropped later.
King and Commissioner was the last film in which this team had joined and it was a failure at box office. Shaji Kailas later done some Tamil films which was remakes of his Malayalam films such as Nadiya Kollapetta Rathri and also a cop story as well. He had done two films with Jayaram as well in Malayalam recently which also ended up as failures. But with Suresh Gopi he had delivered great hits like Thalasthanam, Commissioner, Ekalavayan, Chinthamani Kola Case, Tiger etc over these years.
