Jayasurya and Anjali (the heroine of the Tamil film Angaditheru) are playing the leads in director Leo Thaddeus' Payyans. The Malayalam film is being produced under the banner of Kammu Vadakkan Films.

"The story is based on the life of a young man named Josie (Jayasurya). He takes life a bit too easy; he is not even bothered to complete his engineering course, which he has stopped midway. His mother Padma (Rohini) is working in a shipping company. They live in Fort Kochi," says Leo Thaddeus, who has earlier directed Pachamarathanalil, with Sreenivasan and Padmapriya in the lead.

"After a while Josie's careless ways land him in deep trouble. He changes his nature after a while. How this happens is what Payyans is all about. The story is a family drama that deals with the relationship between parents and their children," adds the director.

Lal plays Josie's father John Varghese, a marine engineer, who has not been seen for several years now. "He gets an impression of his dad through his mother," says Jayasurya.

The actor has just completed shooting for V K Prakash' Three Kings and is now wrapping up debutant director Boban Samuel's Janapriyan.

Jayasurya has been going through a roller-coaster ride of late with some of his high profile projects like Four Friends nose diving at the box office. The actor is pinning his hopes highly on Payyans, obviously.
