Kalidas Jayaram’s upcoming film Argentina Fans Kaattoorkadavu will hit the marquee on March 1st, confirmed its director Midhun Manuel Thomas. The film, which has Kalidas and Aishwarya Lekshmi as the lead pair, is set around the three football world cups between 2010 to 2018. While Kalidas plays a youngster named Vipinan, Aishwarya Lekshmi will be seen as Meharunissa Kadharkutty. In the movie, they are childhood friend residing in the same village. Besides the lead pair, the film will also feature a bunch of newbies.
According to reports, the crux of Argentina Fans Kaattoorkadavu is taken from Ashokan Charuvil’s short story of the same title. The film’s screenplay has been penned jointly by its director Midhun Manuel Thomas and John Manthrickal and it is bankrolled by Ashiq Usman under the banner Ashiq Usman Productions.
The first look of Argentina Fans Kattoorkadavu was unveiled sometime ago and has garnered the attention of the film buffs. Gopi Sunder has composed the tunes for this flick, Renadive does the cinematography and Lijo Paul is taking care of the editing. On this football-based film, director Midhun Manuel Thomas has earlier written on his social media page, “Not only Argentina fans, but all football fans can like the film. Real football fans appear in this film.”
Besides Argentina Fans Kaattoorkadavu, Kalidas has a number of films needing his attention. He has inked a deal to do a film with the noted director Alphonse Puthren. The film will be in Tamil, and it has not been titled yet. It may be mentioned here that this project is the next directorial from Alphonse Puthren after the massive success of Premam, which came out in 2015.
Kalidas whose first film as an adult - Poomaram took time to release – is now packed with films. There is one with ace cinematographer and director Santosh Sivan titled Jack and Jill and another with director Jeethu Joseph, called Mr and Mrs Rowdy.
