Plot is based on the ‘Thankamani incident’ that shook Kerala in the 1980s

The movie is based on true events that unfolded on October 21, 1986 following a bus service dispute, which later resulted in a police baton charge and gunfire in Thankamani, a village located in Idukki district’s Kamakshi gram panchayat. The ‘Thankamani incident’ shook the state of Kerala in the 1980s. 

Thankamani’s cast and crew

Thankamani is produced by RB Chaudhary’s Super Good Films and Rafi Mathira’s Ifar Media. The revenge thriller also features Ajmal Ameer, Siddique, Manoj K Jayan, Kottayam Ramesh, Major Ravi, Santosh Keezhatoor, Thomman Manguva, Ramya Panicker, Mukta and Sivakami in key roles. Meanwhile, Kollywood actors John Vijay and Sampath Ram will also be seen playing crucial characters in the movie. Thankamani’s stunt scenes are choreographed by acclaimed fight masters Stunt Siva, Supreme Sundar, Rajashekhar and Mafia Shashi.


Will the audience accept Dileep as their Janapriyanayagan?

When the first look poster for Dileep’s Thankamani was unveiled, his fans were quick to respond to it positively, while many others shared mixed reactions on Reddit. Users expressed their displeasure with Dileep’s film, as many swore not to watch it due the actor being accused in an assault case earlier, involving an actress. 

Over the past few years, the Janapriynayagan’s films have consistently failed at the box office due to the assault case as well as for his choice of poor scripts. So, now will Thankamani change the actor’s career graph or will it be yet another disappointing film? Audiences may have to wait to see what the Bandra actor has in store for his fans.
