The newly released trailer for June begins with a girl getting ready for her first day at higher secondary school. Nothing unusual about it. What’s extraordinary is the actor – Rajisha Vijayan - familiar to Malayalis through her award winning performance in Anuraga Karikkin Vellam, turning all too easily into a teenager.

Rajisha’s photos as the schoolgirl had surprised many when the getup was released. But in the trailer, you see her behave, speak lines, and look every bit an adolescent, on the verge of adulthood. Some of the lines remind you of Nazriya in Om Shanthi Oshana, especially with the friendly ‘Papa’ character coming in. Joju George, fresh after the success of Joseph, becomes the good old dad, taking his girl to school, prepping her with first day advice when a school year begins. Lines that would sound all too familiar, lines like ‘study hard in these crucial years and you can enjoy afterwards’. The dad is so much like a friend, he pours his girl the first glass of beer and gives her, her first ‘kick’ – hours of bawling.

Acto Aswathy, who had played the young heroine opposite Kunchacko Boban in Satyam Sivam Sundaram, is coming back to cinema after a gap, but playing the much older mother role. From the trailer, however, it seems the film has more to do with dad and daughter, with the mom somewhere in the insides of a house you don’t see.

There are obviously the school scenes – the uniforms, the pigtails, the classrooms, the comments passed between girls about boys and boys about girls, the taunts coming the way of new introductions, and the romance you know is lurking behind all this. And there is of course, trouble.

The film is directed by Ahammed Khabeer, produced by Vijay Babu and his Friday Film House. Ahammed wrote the script with Libin Varghese and Jeevan Baby Mathew. Music is Ifthi’s.
