Malayalam film Anweshippin Kandethum is all set to release on the big screens in December, 2023. Directed by debutant Darwin Kuriakose, the film revolves around two major crimes that shook Kerala and the subsequent inquiry into the cases by a cop portrayed by Tovino Thomas. The film is co-produced by Theatre Of Dreams.
"Malayalam cinema has a legacy of cleverly crafted investigative thrillers and Anweshippin Kandethum, is no exception with its superlative script and immersive storytelling. With Darwin Kuriakose at the helm, Tovino Thomas in the lead, and a gritty narration, this film has a certain edge that sets it apart from other stories of the same genre,” says Siddharth Anand Kumar, Sr. Vice President of Films and Events at Saregama India Ltd.
Thomas, who is back in his cop avtar with Anweshippin Kandethum says,"I was fortunate enough to play a cop's role in the past and be a part of some investigative thrillers but Anweshippin Kandethum and its protagonist are entirely different. Though based on a real crime investigation, the script is crafted to offer many edge-of-the-seat moments and maintain suspenseful elements throughout," added Tovino.
Debutant director Darwin Kuriakose said that as audiences today are exposed to diverse global content, filmmakers will have to think unconventionally to meet their expectations. "We need to take thrillers to unexplored terrains and unexpected places, and the script penned by Jinu V Abraham has all those ingredients, I believe," he said.
Jinu had earlier written the superhit film Kaduva (2022) and now along with Kuriakose, are co-producing this film. Santhosh Narayan is handling the background score. The list of actors includes Indrans, Pramod Veliyanad, Siddique, Shammi Thilakan, Baburaj, Arthana Binu, Ramya Suvi, and Saranya.
