Jean Markose gained a lot of attention with his debut movie ‘Angels’ starring indrajith. Upcoming movie ‘Kuttanpillayude Sivarathri’ in which Suraj Venjaramoodu does the lead is his second directorial attempt. The film says a story of a constable kuttanpillai. Plachottil Kuttanpillai, a 59-year-old police constable, has too much on his plate. He finds it hard to digest that fact that his wife, Shakunthala, is senior to him in the police force. His children, their spouses and a battalion of relatives, land at his home to celebrate Sivarathri festival, a handful of hilarious events ensue. Nevertheless jean says that the protagonist of the movie is a jackfruit tree. New face Asha srikanth plays the role Shakunthala. ‘Uppum Mulakum’ fame Biju Sopanam and Srinda play a couple in the movie. Everyone’s favourite anchor Midhun can be also seen in the cast. The movie comprises of almost hundred new faces which is a main highlight.
Lot of the new faces had came from Dubai for playing their role in the movie. For the movie, there was auditions held in both dubai and kerala in which almost 3000 people did participate. We can see new faces from the age group 5 to 85. 96 of them were selected through audition and will definitely lay their mark in the movie. Suraj Venjaramoodu comments that all the new faces had done their job perfectly as possible which makes us feel that they aren’t new. There has not been a film this recent which did open a gateway of opportunity for these many people. After the greatly remarked ‘chakka paattu’ and the trailer, the film will make its way next week.
