Tovino Thomas has successfully scored a hat trick at the box office this June with three of his films running at the theatres. Interestingly, Tovino has found a good fan base in Chennai with all the three films holding on to the theatres well.
First, it was Virus that had hit the marquee on June 7 to positive reviews. Tovino played Kozhikode District Collector Paul K Abraham in it. Virus, directed by Aashiq Abu, has a notable line-up for stars in the cast including Revathy, Parvathy, Kunchacko Boban, Indrajith, Rima Kallingal, Sreenath Bhasi, Asif Ali, Rahman, Joju George and Remya Nambeesan. The scripting for the film was done by Mushin Parari, Suhas and Sharfu. National Award winning cinematographer Rajeev Ravi cranked the camera for this venture with Sushin Shyam composing the tunes and Saiju Sreedharan taking charge at the editing table. Aashiq Abu and Rima Kallingal bankrolled it under the banner OPM.
Then came the release of And the Oskar Goes To. Tovino Thomas, who plays the male lead in it, is seen as a struggling film director. His character in it is named Izaak Ibrahim. The film is directed by National Award winning director Salim Ahamed. Anu Sithara shared screen space with Tovino in this drama. The film has a very talented technical crew with Bijibal roped in to score the music, Madhu Ambat for cinematography and Oscar winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty for sound mixing and designing.
Tovinoâ€™s third release in nearly consecutive weeks was Luca, opposite young actor Ahaana Krishna. He plays an eccentric scrap artist in the film. Director Arun Bose has scripted the film in association with Mridul George. The technical crew of Luca comprises Sooraj S Kurup to compose the tunes, Nimish Ravi for cranking the camera and Nikhil Venu for editing. The film is being bankrolled jointly by Linto Thomas and Prince Hussain under the banner Stories and Thoughts Productions.
