The quirky casting call for the movie, which is directed by Android Kunjappan Ver. 5.25 director Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval, has been shared widely online
Director Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval seems to have a knack for coming up with the quirkiest ways to announce his films. After the critically and commercially acclaimed Android Kunjappan Ver. 5.25 and Nivin Pauly’s Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham, the filmmaker will next team up with Kunchacko Boban in Nna, Thaan Case Kodu.
The team has announced that the movie will go on floors next month and have put out a zany casting call, seeking two thieves, eight policemen, 16 advocates, 4 shuttlers, an older couple who haven’t lost their youth, a chief minister and a magistrate.
The movie, which will reportedly revolve around a court based on its casting call, will mostly be set in North Kerala with precedence given to those from Kozhikode, Kannur and Kasaragod. The quirky audition poster asks those who think they fit the given description or have been accused of these to send in their entries.
Nna, Thaan Case Kodu also has Vinay Forrt as part of the cast. The actor, who had also worked with Ratheesh in Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham, had earlier told OTTplay, “I agreed to do Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham, just to prepare for Nna, Thaan Case Kodu. But when we began shooting it, the entire film just went up a notch. In most of the films, we do comedies that guarantee minimum laughs. For instance, people thought my character Agosh Menon in Mohan Kumar Fans was funny because of his situation; it didn’t need me to be convincing. Ratheeshettan, as a filmmaker, is crazy and his sense of humour is unbelievable. If you talk to him for five minutes, he will crack at least three jokes that will have you laughing out loud. It was working with someone crazier than me. So, the comedy in Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham is a bit over the top, it’s not that realistic.”
