B. Unnikrishnan, the scriptwriter who turned to direction with the Sureshgopi starrer Smart City in 2006, has recently directed the box office blockbuster Madambi, starring Mohanlal and Kavya Madhavan together for the first time. Much impressed by the basic plot of Madambi, Mohanlal had immediately accepted the film, which later turned to be a huge hit in Kerala as well as in other states.
Now, Unnikrishnan is all set to direct another film titled I.G. with Sureshgopi in the lead. As the title I.G. indicates, the film would probably be a cop story. The producer is Mahi. More details are waited.
Currently, Sureshgopi is busy shooting debutante director Ajmal's investigative thriller Ring Tone, which is about an investigation into a series of mysterious cyanide-caused deaths that take place in a tribal community. Sureshgopi plays the role of Ninan Koshi, the CBI officer who investigates the case. This is the first time in his career that Sureshgopi, who is almost synonymous with the police officer roles on screen, is donning the role of a CBI officer. Bala plays an important role along with Sureshgopi; Telugu actress Megha Nair is the heroine.
Produced by Sree Kumar, Swaminathan and Prabhu Kumar under the banner of Panchajanyam films, Ring Tone has Ashish Vidyarthi, Rajan P. Dev, Sai Kumar and Anoop Chandran in major roles. Saneesh and Arafath make their debuts as script writers. Bejoys wields the camera. Music director Shan scores music to the lyrics written by Vayalar Sarath Chandra Varma.
