The prologue teaser of the Malayalam movie Kalki starring Tovino Thomas is out. In this power packed prologue teaser, Tovino is seen jumping with all his might to strike those coming for him. The actor plays a police officer in Kalki and according to reports it will be a spinoff of the title character played by Mammootty for the 1991 film Inspector Balram.
On Tovino’s role in Kalki, one of the producers of the film Prasobh Krishna said in an interview to the Times of India much earlier, “His role is similar to Mammootty’s Inspector Balram that has a cult following. He will be seen throughout he movie as a cop. However, it doesn’t deal with investigations or anything but about a few incidents that happen in a place,” and added that the title Kalki was finalised because, “Kalki is said to be the final incarnation of Lord Vishnu and the harbinger of destruction. It’s in line with a few character traits of Tovino’s role but the similarity ends there.”
Wielding the megaphone for Kalki is Praveen Prabharam and he has jointly penned the script with Sujin Sujathan. Handling the cinematography for this film is Gautham Sankar and Jakes Bejoy is composing music. Kalki is bankrolled by Suvin K Krishna and Prasobh Krishna under the banner Little Big Films.
While Kalki is progressing, Tovino will also be working on Luca, which will be directed by Arun Bose. Sharing screen space with him in the film is Ahaana Krishna, who was last seen in Njandukalude Naatil Oru Idavela. Both Luca and Kalki are touted to hit the marquee this year.
It may be noted here that Tovino’s role in the latest release Lucifer was much appreciated. He played Jethin Ramdas, a reluctant entrant to politics. The film was directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran and starred Mohanlal in the lead role.
