CRPC 302, the upcoming Malayalam film, is a cop-thriller set in the Idukki district in Kerala, filmmaker Sachu K Bhasy told Silverscreen India. The film’s first look poster was released by actor Indrajith Sukumaran on his social media page on Friday.
Produced by Sooraj Vaava under the Film Forest Productions banner, CRPC 302 has a script written by Manuel A Francis.
Speaking to Silverscreen India, Sachu, who marks his directorial debut with CRPC 302, said, “This film is about the investigation of a suspected murder case by four policemen. There is no single hero in the film. These four cops — a head constable, a sub-inspector, and a couple of constables — are of a mixed age group and act as the film’s leads.”
CRPC 302 will have well-known artists in the lead roles and an announcement regarding the same will be made in the coming days, according to the director.
The film will follow the policemen’s efforts to solve the case and the tagline, ‘A way to get remembered’, refers to the fact that cracking it will be a way for them to be remembered, he added.
The filmmaker is pleased with the crew that has been put together for CRPC 302. The team includes music composer Arun Muraleedharan, who rose to fame with his work in Anugraheethan Antony, and editor Nishadh Yusuf, who has worked in films like Unda, One, and Operation Java.
CRPC 302 will be shot by cinematographer Don Paul P.
The film’s scriptwriter Manuel is a friend of the director. A medical representative by profession, Manuel told Sachu the story thread of CRPC 302 and later, the duo brainstormed and fleshed out the story. “As Manuel took around two years to work on this script, I was almost ready to kickstart another film with my own script. But, due to date constraints, that project did not take off. That’s when Manuel got back to me and said he had completed this script. We then approached the producer Sooraj with help of director Sagar Hari (Kumbarees, Sathyam Mathrame Bodhippikku), with whom I have previously worked as an associate director.”
“The film is currently in the pre-production stage and we are finalising the cast. We are hoping to go on floors in November,” Sachu added.
