Biju Menon speaks highly of debutant director Arun Varma

In a recent interview with Manorama Online, Biju, Arun and Abhirami (female lead of the movie) sat down to discuss the making of the upcoming thriller. While speaking about Arun’s style of direction, Biju mentioned that the film’s subject was not an easy one for a newcomer. However, Arun conducted thorough research for the film. 

The actor said, “The film’s subject is actually not an easy theme to handle, to be honest. When I heard the story for the first time, I was sceptical about how well he could direct this film. I even asked him if he was confident about taking on this project. But Arun was very thorough with his plans. I even thought he might feel stressed during the shoot and seek help from us. But he was quite confident and handled production with ease.”

The upcoming thriller narrates the story of Commandant Harish Madhav (Suresh), who is remorseful about an investigation that took place in the past.

The legal tussle between the cop and the professor, along with the cop’s efforts to solve a complex case, make it a mystery worth delving into. The trailer promises a complex storyline.
