Almost two decades ago, in Kamal’s Malayalam film Azhakiya Ravanan, Sreenivasan played a tailor-cum-novelist named N P Ambujakshan, and narrated a story titled Chirakodinja Kinavukal, which attained cult status.
That particular story was a mockery of melodrama and cliches, and will now be made into a movie with the same name by debutant director Santhosh Viswanath.
The new film stars Kunchacko Boban and Rima Kallingal along with Sreenivasan, Murali Gopi and Joy Mathew.
Rima plays a 19-year-old girl named Sumathi, who is in love with a tailor, played by Kunchacko Boban.
Chirakodinja Kinavukal has been produced by Listin Stephen under the banner of Magic Frames.
