“The story is about the particular life of politicians, the incidents that come about in their households and how that has an effect on their political career and image. Equally the proper and left wing celebration cadres in the Condition have been highlighted,” suggests Jibu, director of Vellimoonga, Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol and Aadyarathri.

Asif performs comrade Vineeth, leader of the youth wing of a occasion. He marries Ancy (Rajisha), daughter of KV Chacko (Siddique), notable chief of the rival social gathering, towards his needs. “Vineeth and Ancy are like chalk and cheese. Ancy, who is outspoken and headstrong, has an upper-hand about Vineeth, who is often lower on self-assurance. His mother nature eventually leads to troubles in their connection. Ancy is irked when Vineeth finds more time for his party-connected pursuits than her. Inevitably, a expecting Ancy is torn in between the really like for her father and her partner,” Jibu claims.

A cinematographer-turned-director, Jibu mentions that though his productive to start with movie, Vellimoonga (2014), also managed politics, Ellam Sheriyakum falls into a various style. “Vellimoonga was about a road-clever politician named Mamachan. The people in Ellam Sheriyakum would remind viewers of selected actual-daily life politicians and political developments in the Point out. Siddique’s character is in fact a blend of two of our major politicians. But I have not taken sides. I strongly imagine that all get-togethers have their have virtues and vices and we have not hesitated in telling that,” he adds.

The film, published and scripted by Sharis Mohammed, is dependent in central Travancore and areas of Kannur.

On the Asif-Rajisha combo, he opines that they make the finest pair in Malayalam cinema these days. “They nailed it as a pair in their to start with movie [Anuraga Karikkin Vellam]. I experienced great pleasurable working with them. It was easy doing work with two magnificent actors who appeared to be competing versus each and every other with their talent,” Jibu asserts.

Also part of the forged are Johny Antony, Sudheer Karamana, Sreejith Ravi, Kottayam Ramesh, Suresh Kumar, Tulasi Mani (who acted in Sankarabharanam) and Neeraja Rajendran amongst some others. “It is 200th task of the film’s composer Ouseppachan, who is also playing a significant character. I think about it as an honour to have him on board. He is the senior most member of our crew but no a person can match up to his energy,” Jibu states. The film is manufactured by Thomas Thiruvalla and Dr Paul Varghese.
