Director duo Siddique-Lal's In Harihar Nagar was one of the best youth films of the nineties, which was later remade in many other languages (remade in Hindi by Priyadarshan as Dhol). The famous line "Thomassukutty vittodaa" comes from this movie; it is referred to as part of the golden age of Malayalam comedy and among the most hilarious movies in Indian cinema. Now, the latest news is that this film is going to have a sequel.
If the initial news about the project is to be believed, actor-producer Lal is going to debut as an independent director with the movie, which will be produced by Lal himself. Other details about the cast and crew are awaited.
In Harihar Nagar is the story of four young men Mahadevan (Mukesh), Govindan Kutty (Siddique), Appukuttan (Jagadish) and Thomas Kutty (Asokan), who live together in Harihar Nagar. The story begins with the arrival of lovely Maya (Geetha Vijayan) to a nearby house. The four of them are instantly smitten and decide to pursue her. They try to woo the girl by planning to charm her grandparents and thus winning their trust. Those attempts have hilarious consequences.
But Maya is in town to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of her brother (Sureshgopi). In an attempt to win Maya's heart, these four guys convince Maya that they knew her brother very well and that they were his close friends. Then the movie veers into serious territory involving a villain, John Honai (Riza Bava), who was also responsible for the murder of Andrew, a friend of the girl's brother.
