Two parallel stories appear to be told in Vikrithi, a new film featuring Soubin Shahir and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead.
The official trailer, released on Thursday, begins lightheartedly with Soubin's friends and family teasing him about his marriage. Suraj's story arc shows the picture of a happy family, with his wife and two kids. The background score changes as the trailer progresses and a few policemen led by actor Baburaj enter the picture. It appears to take on a serious note, with a police case happening.
The film is directed by Emcy Joseph and written by Ajeesh P Thomas. It is produced by AD Sreekumar, Ganesh Menon, Lakshmi Warrier. Alby is the cinematographer and Bijibal is the music composer for Vikrithi. The film is edited by Ayoobkhan.
According to the trailer, the film will release in October this year.
Apart from Suraj and Soubin, other actors in the cast include Irshad, Baburaj, Surabhi Lakshmi, Balu Varghese, Sudhi Koppa, Bhagath Manuel, and a new actor playing the role of Zeenath.
Suraj has just been seen in Finals, released last week, playing a seasoned coach and dad to Rajisha Vijayan’s character Alice. Suraj’s effortless portrayal of Varghese maash has been lauded a lot. The film marks the directorial debut of writer PR Arun, who has also scripted it. Suraj, Rajisha and Niranj play the three important characters in the film revolving around sports and the problems faced by sportspeople in the state.
Soubin’s last film that released was Ambili, in which he played a child-like man with endearing quirks. The actor was appreciated for pulling off the innocent Ambili smoothly, though the film itself failed to impress critics. The film, directed by Johnpaul George, saw Soubin partnering with Naveen Nazim, who made his acting debut.
