For the first time in their career, father-son duo Sreenivasan and Dhyan will be seen in a movie together. The film is titled Kuttymama and the trailer of this comedy entertainer was recently released.

In the film, Sreenivasan plays the role of Shekaran Kutty, a retired army man. Fondly referred to as Kuttymama, Shekaran Kutty tells his family and neighbours such long stories of war-time exploits that they begin to run when they see him come. However, at the heart of this comedy, there is a love story of Kuttymama.

Director VM Vinu has earlier stated that an actor and screenwriter of Sreenivasan’s stature agreeing to do his film is a validation of the story of the film. He promised that the narration of the story will be entertaining and funny.

Vinu was earlier quoted by the Times of India as saying, “The movie is about a jawan, his life and certain incidents in the Kargil war that leaves a lasting impact on him. The story is told through humour and is a family entertainer. Sreenivasan and Dhyan play important roles with Durga Krishna of Vimaanam fame acting as the heroine.”

The director denied the rumours that Kuttymama has a close connection with the film Yodha, a Mohanlal film from the early 1990s which had a character called Kuttymama. But Vinu said, “No. Sreenivasan plays the jawan named Shekharankutty but everyone in his family and those close to him calls him Kuttymama; hence the title.” 

The film’s camera work is handled by the director’s son Varun. Achu Rajamoni has been roped in to score music for the film. The scripting for Kuttymama has been done by Manaf. Also in the cast are Surabhi Lakshmi, Premkumar and Harish Kanaran.

Sreenivasan has earlier acted with his elder son Vineeth in films like Makante Achan (where they played father and son) and Traffic (where the two do not have a scene together).
