Director Jibu Jacob is known for surprise hits such as Biju Menon’s Vellimoonga and most recently Asif Ali’s Ellaam Sheriyaakum. But every once in a while, the filmmaker teams up with a big star to make a family entertainer like Munthirivallikal Thalirkumbol that gets people back to the theatres. He would be hoping the same when his latest movie Mei Hoom Moosa, which has superstar Suresh Gopi in the lead, releases on Friday along with other language biggies such as Ponniyin Selvan: I and Vikram Vedha.
Early on Friday, the director took to his social media page to share a hand-written note on what Mei Hoom Moosa means to him as a filmmaker. “Today, Mei Hoom Moosa is reaching you. It’s the biggest film of my career. It will also be one of the best characters of the magician of the silverscreen, superstar Suresh Gopi,” he wrote.
The director also said by the time that the movie’s scriptwriter Rubesh Rain had narrated the first half of the script to him, he was fully absorbed by the story of its protagonist Moosa. “Today it will be presenting it to you in its complete form,” he said, adding that the audience who had supported his previous ventures will continue to back him with the film too.
Mei Hoom Moosa, which is touted to be a comedy-entertainer, that revolves around a man named Moosa who has been missing for several years and was declared dead. Suresh Gopi plays the titular character while Poonam Bajwa will be seen portraying the female protagonist in the film, which also stars Saiju Kurup, Srinda, Salim Kumar, Hareesh Kanaran, Mithun Ramesh, Major Ravi and Veena Nair.
The movie, which has Suresh Gopi essaying the role of a former soldier, was shot in locations across India including Amritsar, Kargil, Delhi, Jaipur and Kerala. The movie marks Suresh Gopi’s next theatrical release after the hugely successful Paappan, which is now streaming on ZEE5.
