VKP's next starring Indrajith titled 'A-Ku-Pu'
One of the complaints that most Malayalam film/language lovers had regarding recent Mollywood films is the trend of using English titles. They felt the good old titles with 'scent of the soil' is missing. Then came some new generation films with titles like 'Ninne Kollum Njanum Chavum, 'Natholi Oru Cheriya Menalla' 'Otta Oruthiyum sheriyalla' etc which also these so called people couldn't agree upon. Now the latest entry in the bandwagon of weird/catchy titles is VKP. His next film has been titled 'A-Ku-Pu' [Asooya Kushumbu Pucham].
According to the Director he film will be a Cynical satire in the likes of the cult classic 'Panchavadi Palam (1984)'. The film will portray certain 'typical' characters of Malayalis adds him. The film will be scripted by two Civil servants Prashanth & Ambady. Indrajith plays the title character Shankaran Vatsyayanan who is an aspiring politician. Rest of the cast will be announced later.
According to the writers the film will be socio-political drama with a hint of magical realism. Shooting begins this November & releasing planned for early 2014
