Aadu Oru Bheekara Jeeviyanu which released in the year 2015 was a comedy road movie penned and directed by Midhun Manuel Thomas. The film starred Jayasurya in the lead role with Vijay Babu, Vinayakan, Saiju Kurup, Vineeth Mohan, Srinda Ashab, Sunny Wayne, Renji Panicker, Sandra Thomas and others in the supporting role. Though the film failed to rake in collections at the box office, it was critically acclaimed. To make up for the losses at the box office, the same team went ahead with a sequel, Aadu 2, which was released during the Christmas season of 2017 started off its magnificent run in the theatres and did extend its grand run towards the first half of January.
This film made up for the commercial loss of its prequel and now the filmmakers are contemplating on going ahead with Aadu 3. The film’s producer Vijay Babu is reported to have told in an interview that Aadu 3 might be a 3D film and more details will be out shortly.
Aadu 2, which released on December 22nd last year, is still continuing to run at some centers in Kerala making it clear that it is box office winner. It has Jayasurya, Dharmajan Bolgatty, Saiju Kurup, Vineeth Mohan, Bhagath Manuel, Vijay Babu, Vinayakan and Nelson Sooranad in the star cast.
Shaan Rahman had composed tunes for this flick while Vishnu Narayan wielded the camera and Lijo Jose edited it. The film was bankrolled by Vijay Babu under his banner FridayFilm House.
In the Aadu franchise, Jayasurya plays Shaji Pappan and each film would revolve around a different episode in his life. With Aadu not being a commercial success and its sequel making up for the losses, now movie buffs wait in anticipation to know what the team would come up with in Aadu 3.
