The movie, which is scripted by Abhilash Pillai, also has Anna Ben and Roshan Mathew as part of the cast
Director Vysakh’s films have always had ‘mass’ elements to appeal to the larger audience. His next titled Night Drive, which has Indrajith Sukumaran, Roshan Mathew and Anna Ben as part of the cast, will present its lead actors in never-seen-before avatars, says its scriptwriter Abhilash Pillai exclusively to OTTplay.
Talking to us right after the switch-on ceremony of the movie in Kochi, Abhilash says, “It's a stylish thriller from Vysakh. It has elements of an entertainer too but it is packaged as a thriller.”
While the scriptwriter, who has also written Amala Paul’s upcoming movie Cadaver, is tight-lipped about the characters the lead trio plays, he tells us, “Both Roshan and Anna will be seen in totally different roles from their earlier collaboration Kappela. The format of Night Drive is also different. Indrajith chettan will also be seen in a stylish avatar in the film.”
Abhilash has also scripted M Padmakumar’s Pathaam Valavu, which also has Indrajith as part of the cast and is currently being shot in Thodupuzha. “He will be joining Night Drive only after he completes his portions in Pathaam Valavu. Right now, Roshan and Anna’s portions are being shot,” he says, adding that the entire schedule of the upcoming thriller will be in Kochi.
Ranjin Raj is composing the music for Night Drive and cinematographer Shaji Kumar, who worked with Vysakh in the blockbuster Pulimurugan will be cranking the camera for this film too.
Indrajith, meanwhile, has a host of upcoming releases including Thuamukham, Aaha, Kurup, Theerpu, 19(1)(a) and Anuradha Crime No. 59/2019.
