‘Chappa Kurishu’ hits screens on July 15

Its unique trailer has already got cinema fans intrigued

Malayalam films are coming of age. And Sameer Thahir’s Chappa Kurishu, which releases this weekend, is expected to break norms. The film is releasing this Friday in 60 screens across Kerala. It’s trailer has already piqued the curiosity of film buffs and the opening is expected to be a houseful affair. The film stars Vineeth Sreenivasan in the lead role, alongside newcomer Fahad Fazil, Roma, Ramya Nambeesan and Nivedhita.

A thriller, Chappa Kurishu is written and directed by debutant director Sameer Thahir, who worked as a cameraman in Big B and Daddy Cool. Supposedly inspired by the Hollywood film, 21 Grams, the film’s trailer indicates a different style of realistic cinema, which eluded Mollywood so far. The trailer, which has been uniquely weaved is already a YouTube rage. Another highlight of the movie is a two-minute lip-lock scene, featuring Fahad and Ramya Nambeesan!
