Android Kunjappan Version 5.25 Trailer Features Suraj Venjarammood, Soubin Shahir And A Robot In Top Form

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.
