Two of the most talented actors in Malayalam cinema, Suraj Venjarammood and Soubin Shahir, reunite in Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval’s Android Kunjappan Version 5.25, 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.
Android Kunjappan 5.25 is written and directed by Ratheesh, an acclaimed production designer who has worked in films such as Kammattipadam. The film, which was extensively shot in Russia and Kerala, is produced by Santhosh T Kuruvila. Sanu John Varughese is the cinematographer, and Saiju Sreedharan is the editor. The film’s music is composed by Bijibal. The film is set to release in theatres in November.
