Excellent response for Uncle trailer in social medias!
The highly anticipated Mammootty starrer Uncle is gearing up to hit screens. Last day, the movie’s official trailer was released by the makers. The mysterious build-up to Mammootty’s character and his grey shaded nature has piqued the curiosity of the audience. Fans as well as the commoners have pinned high hopes on Uncle after the trailer.
Gireesh Damodar, a former associate of Ranjith and Padmakumar, is making his directorial debut with this movie. Actor Joy Mathew has scripted this movie, his second outing as a scriptwriter after the critically acclaimed ‘Shutter’. Just like his previous movie, Uncle also looks like a socially relevant film. It tells the story of a teeange girl and her father’s friend. ‘CIA’ fame Karthika Muraleedharan and Mammootty play these two lead roles in the movie.
Apparently, the core plot is set in the journey of Mammootty’s character Krishnakumar aka KK from Ooty to Kozhikode. KK, a Mumbai based businessman, is accompanied by his friend’s daughter in this trip. It is about an unusual situation a middle class family is made to face. The social and political setting of Kerala is of much prominence in the movie.
Mammootty will be seen in a different role altogether in the movie. He is sporting a salt and pepper bearded look for his character, which is said to be a grey shaded one. It is highly exciting as Mammootty is playing such a performance oriented character after a long while.
Uncle also stars Joy Mathew, Asha Sharath, Ganapathi, Vinay Forrt, Suresh Krishna, Kailash, KPAC Lalitha and Muthumani in supporting roles. Its technical crew includes veteran cinematographer Azhagappan, music director Bijibal and editor Shameer Muhammed.
Joy Mathew and Sajai Sebastian are jointly funding the movie under their banners of Abra Films International and SJ Films. Reports suggest that Uncle will hit screens on April 27 but an official word from the makers is still awaited.
