Another whodunit

G. JAYAKUMAR

`Ravanan' has Kalabhavan Mani playing a cop again.



SUPERMAN: `Ravanan' sees Kalabhavan Mani playing a cop with brains and brawn.

Since the mythological Ravanan had 10 heads, he must have been able to think faster, so Jojo K. Verghese tells us. "Imagine a police officer who thinks and fights like Ravanan. He is my film's hero," he adds. Jojo has forayed into direction after working as associate to film director Bhadran.

Murder mystery

The story centres on the murder of a judge and how Ravanan Varghese hunts down the killers. Kalabhavan Mani is S.P. Antony Varghese, a brainy and brawny super cop better known as Ravanan. Jagathy is the sub-inspector assisting him in the case. Nemom Pushparaj who is also the art director of the film plays the role of the manager of a jewellery shop.

Along with suspense, the director promises a lot of action and fights, to make the film an enjoyable entertainer.

A big jewellery shop in Thiruvananthapuram is the location of a shoot for this debut movie by Jojo.

Steely glint

Kalabhavan Mani dangles a key chain in front of the manager and is questioning him about it. Though his manner is quiet, there is a steely glint in Mani's eyes. Jagathy looks like, well ... Jagathy.

A crowd has gathered outside pressing their faces to the glass panes of the shop.

When the director says `Cut, shot okay," Kalabhavan Mani comes over. He is now in his usual cheery self. When queried about his method of acting he says that he puts into his acting what he has learnt from experience.

The cast includes Madhu Warrier, Sudheesh, Nishant Sagar, Sreejith, Ollam Thulasi, Madhu, Rajan P.Dev, and Megha Jasmine, sister of Meera Jasmine.

The script is by Biju Devassia. Venugopalan wields the camera.

The lyrics of Kaithapram are set to music by M. Jayachandran. The still photographer is Salish Peringottukara. Produced by Aroma Mani for Sunitha Productions, Ravanan is slated for release in the first week of March.
