The movie, directed by Sanjith Chandrasenan, also has Niranj Raju, Rahul Madhav, Aju Varghese Dain Davis, Chandunath, Karthik Ramakrishnan and Shalu Raheem as part of the cast
With a host of young actors as part of the cast, the upcoming movie Thrayam promises to be a treat – not just in terms of its content and cast, but also for its making. The film, directed by debutant Sanjith Chandrasenan, has Dhyan Sreenivasan and Sunny Wayne in the lead and its first look poster was revealed today.
Talking to OTTplay, Sanjith, who was earlier set to helm a movie with Gokul Suresh, tells us, “It’s a thriller that evolves in a non-linear format like hyperlink cinema, with everything aligning at the end. Our title signifies man, money and mystery, and all the characters are connected to each of these three facets. We aren’t giving any background details of the characters, so there’s a mystery to each person in the movie.”
The movie is scripted by Arun K Gopinaath, who had earlier co-written Fahadh Faasil’s underrated God’s Own Country, which also had parallel narratives. Thrayam has a huge star cast also featuring Niranj Raju, Rahul Madhav, Aju Varghese, Dain Davis, G Chandunath, Karthik Ramakrishnan and Shalu Raheem. Niranjana Anoop, Anarkali Marikar, Diana Hameed and Surabhi Santosh are the female leads of the movie. Thirike’s Gopikrishnan K Varma also plays a pivotal role in the film.
The shoot of the movie has been completed. “We shot one half right after the first lockdown and now we have finished the movie after the restrictions were eased following the second lockdown this year. The entire film is shot during the night,” says the director.
