SN Swamy reassures that CBI 5 will be the best ever thriller film in Malayalam!
The trio of Mammootty, script writer SN Swamy and director K Madhu are reuniting for the fifth part of the popular CBI franchise. ‘CBI 5’ shoot was supposed to kick-start in July but due to the Covid-19 situation, it had to be postponed. But the makers are still very confident about the project. SN Swamy has once again stated that ‘CBI 5’ will be the best thriller to have released in Malayalam. The film will be centred around basket killing, a term the makers have coined.
Earlier, during an award ceremony, SN Swamy is quoted saying, “I’m sure ‘CBI 5’ will be a great experience for the audience. It’s the result of three years of my hardwork. Climax of the movie will redefine the way future thrillers are made in Malayalam. It will trigger the start of a new wave.”
It is impossible to start shoot during this situation as the film demands to be shot majority in outdoor locations and amidst large crowd. After restrictions are lifted and things return back to normalcy, ‘CBI 5’ will be the first project that Mammootty will be working on. Pre-production works including casting is currently being finalized. Mukesh, Sai Kumar and Renji Panciker will be seen in supporting roles.
On the technical front, Jakes Bejoy has been signed as the music director. More details are expected to be revealed in the coming days.
