Renji Panikkar is planning a sequel for the political thriller Pathram directed by Joshy and released way back in 1999.
The fast paced thriller revolutionized the notion of a political drama, which cleverly integrated riveting dialogues, racy action, sentiments and satires all rolled into one. Sureshgopi breathed life into the central character supported by Manju Warrier, Biju Menon and N F Varghese.
Renji Panikkar plans a sequel which will enhance the beauty of the prequel all the more, with none other than Sureshgopi in the lead role. In Pathram 2 he would be seen in the role of the Managing Editor of the paper where he had worked as a reporter earlier. Ashish Vidyarthi, would be the villain in the story, making his presence as a corrupt politician, with our hero forced to take on the Government itself.
The lead heroine and others in the castare yet to be decided. Raji Panikkar's Pathram 2 will turn unravel the nefarious politics and its vicious means. The count down has already begun
