If you thought director Saheed Arafath’s crime drama Thankam was too sombre a movie to watch in theatres, the latest trailer of the film, starring Vineeth Sreenivasan and Biju Menon, could arguably change your mind.
The “success trailer” of the film has several portions of the movie that depict the dark humour in Syam Pushkaran’s script and has a delightfully pacy soundtrack to go along with the visuals. It also highlights the camaraderie between its lead characters essayed by Vineeth, Biju and Vineeth Thattathil, while showcasing the guile of Girish Kulkarni’s ‘Marathi police officer investigating a Mallu case in Tamil Nadu’.

Thankam, which is produced by Dileesh Pothan, Fahadh Faasil and Syam, hit theatres on January 25. The movie revolves around the investigation that happens after a ‘rider’ who delivers gold jewellery to clients in return for pure gold, goes missing after an errand in Mumbai.
Vineeth essays the role of the ‘rider’ named Kannan in the film, which has Aparna Balamurali playing the character’s wife. Biju Menon plays a goldsmith and his colleague, while Girish essays the role of a police officer who is tasked with the investigation. The film also has a host of newcomers, who had been selected from auditions across Kerala and Tamil Nadu, as part of the movie.
In an earlier interview with us, Vineeth talked about how much he enjoyed collaborating with the team, known for their films such as Joji and Maheshinte Prathikaram. “There is hardly any strain for actors on their sets. There’s no need to learn the script because Syam would keep talking to us about the story and the characters, and by the time those discussions are over, the dialogues we have to say and the emotions we have to portray are etched in our minds. All we have to do then is just to say those lines,” he said.
