Christopher has Mammootty essaying the role of a police officer heading an investigative team
Mammootty fans have more reasons to continue rejoicing. The New Year kicked off with the launch of the teaser of the megastar’s latest movie Christopher, which is scheduled to hit theatres soon. The film, helmed by B Unnikrishnan and scripted by Udaykrishna, is sure to thrill the fans, who are awaiting a ‘mass’ turn from the actor since Amal Neerad’s Bheeshmaparvam.
From the teaser that was shared by the megastar on January 1, the film has him playing DPCAW chief Christopher who is deputed to investigate a series of unsolved murders. The video also hints that Mammootty’s character is not someone who plays by the rules, and the antagonist Sitaram, essayed by Tamil actor Vinay Rai, knows how to play mind games with him.
We also get to see the first glimpse of Aishwarya Lekshmi’s character from the film and the actress could very well be playing someone close to Christopher, probably his daughter. Amala Paul, Sneha, Siddique, Shine Tom Chacko, Jinu Joseph, Deepak Parambol, Aditi Ravi and Dileesh Pothan also star in the film, which is expected to hit theatres in January itself.
Tamil superstar Sarathkumar will also be seen in a pivotal role in the film, which has Justin Varghese as its composer, Faiz Siddik as its cinematographer and Nithin Lukose, who had helmed Paka, as its sound designer.
The movie could mark Mammootty’s second release this month, if Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam releases first. The actor also has wrapped up shooting for Jeo Baby’s family-drama Kaathal: The Core, which is also produced by Mammootty Kampany and marks Tamil actress Jyotika’s comeback to Malayalam after almost 13 years.
Mammootty, meanwhile, has joined the sets of cinematographer Roby Varghese Raj’s directorial debut, which will also have him essaying the role of a police officer. The shoot of the film, co-scripted by Dr Rony David and Muhammed Shafi, is currently progressing in Pala.
