The first video of the megastar’s soon-to-be-released film Christopher was released as the new year got underway. Fans who have been waiting for the actor to make a “mass” appearance since Amal Neerad’s Bheeshmaparvam are sure to be thrilled by the movie, which is directed by B Unnikrishnan and written by Udaykrishna.
The megastar plays DPCAW chief Christopher in the movie, who is sent to look into a string of unsolved killings, according to the teaser that he tweeted on January 1. The video also suggests that Mammootty’s character doesn’t always follow the rules and that Sitaram, the antagonist played by Vinay Rai, knows how to use him.
Additionally, we get our first look at Aishwarya Lekshmi’s movie role, who might very well be someone close to Christopher—possibly his daughter. Shine, Sneha, Siddique, and Amala Paul. the movie, which is anticipated to hit theatres in January, also stars Dileesh Pothan, Tom Chacko, Jinu Joseph, Deepak Parambol, Aditi Ravi, and Jinu Joseph. The film’s composer is Justin Varghese, its cinematographer is Faiz Siddik, and its sound designer is Nithin Lukose, who directed Paka. Tamil superstar Sarathkumar will also be featured in a key part in the movie.
If Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam debuts first, the film might be Mammootty’s second release this month. In addition, the actor has completed filming for Jeo Baby’s family drama Kaathal: The Core, which is being distributed by Mammootty Kampany and features Jyotika, a Tamil actress, returning to Malayalam after nearly 13 years.
Mammootty, meantime, has started working on the set of Roby Varghese Raj’s debut feature film, which likewise casts him in the role of a police officer. The movie, whose script was co-written by Dr. Rony David and Muhammad Shafi, is now being shot in Pala.
