Actor Soubin Shahir, who predominantly works in Malayalam films, released the first look poster of his upcoming film American Junction on Sunday. The film is directed by Prem Sreekumar.
Two of the most talented actors in Malayalam cinema, Suraj Venjarammood and Soubin Shahir, reunite in Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval’s Android Kunjappan Version 5.0, an oddball comedy which features a robot in one of the central roles.
The trailer of the film, amusingly cut to the tick of a clock, hints that the film narrates the tale of a curious family of a father and his two grownup sons, Suraj Venjarammood, Soubin Shahir and Saiju Kurup respectively, in an old rural Kerala house. The sons’ defiance against the father’s stubborn old-fashioned ways, and the arrival of a Japanese-made robot to the household seems to be the crux of the film. The highlight of the trailer is the chemistry between Suraj and Soubin who were recently seen together in Vikruthi.
Although Soubin Shahir’s recent release at the box-office, Oru Yamandan Prema Katha, a comedy where he played a supporting role to Dulquer’s protagonist, received a lukewarm response from the audience, the actor is associated with some of the most interesting projects in Malayalam this year. Shahir, who won the Kerala state film award for Best Actor in 2018 for Sudani From Nigeria, started this year on a high note, with Kumbalangi Nights, a critical and commercial succcess about a dysfuctional family. His performance as the eldest of the four brothers in the slice-of-life drama directed by Madhu C Narayanan, set the bar high.
Jayasurya and Soubin Shahir shared the award for the Best Actor, while Nimisha Sajayan won the Best Actress award at the 49th Kerala State Film Awards announced by the Minister of Cultural Affairs, A.K.Balan, at the Trivandrum Press Club this noon.

In order to draw a comparison between the urban and the pastoral – the healthy life choices of Ambili and the toxicity that city life has caused in Bobby – the film has scenes where Bobby, in spite of being a passionate young cyclist, dining at expensive fast-food centres.Ambili, directed by Johnpaul George, is centred on Ambili (Soubin Shahir), a simpleton with signs of autism who lights up his bleak life with innocuous love for everything and a childlike cheerfulness.
From Sudhish, who plays a local health inspector, to actor Soubin Shahir, as a dying Nipah patient pleading with the medical officers to not remind him of his tragic personal life, the film’s ensemble cast delivers a terrific performance.The film, a thriller based on the real incident of Nipah virus outbreak in Kerala’s Kozhikode district in 2018 that claimed 17 lives, is spread out on a vast canvas.

Written and directed by Vinu Joseph, the film is a comedy, starring Biju Menon, Neeraj Madhav, Anjali, Dileesh Pothan, Salim Kumar, Soubin Shahir, Sudheer Karamana, and Alencier Ley Lopez. Earlier Sunny Wayne was cast in a role, who was later replaced by Neeraj.In a bid to kick start his life, along with his equally clueless friends, the team begins something new. Anjali is reportedly playing a strong character in the film while the other female lead, Shilpa Manjunath, makes her debut with a convincing performance, says the director.
The year didn’t belong to the two male superstars, Mohanlal and Mammootty, who floundered with movies like Velipaadinte Pusthakam and Pullikkaaran Staara, but to the younger crop of stars, Dulquer Salmaan, Parvathy and Fahadh Fazil, and directors like Dileesh Pothan, Lijo Jose Pallissery and Soubin Shahir.
Directed by Soubin Shahir with a script jointly written by Shahir and Muneer Ali, Parava marks Shahir’s directorial debut and features yesteryear actors’ sons – Shane Nigam, son of popular comedian Abi, Arjun Asokan, son of Harisree Asokan, and Zinil Sainudeen, and a cameo by Dulquer Salmaan.
