Dileep's Christmas release Crazy Gopalan, a hilarious comedy thriller directed by debutante Deepu Karunakaran, is all set to grace theatres on December 24, 2008. Earlier, the film was scheduled to be released on the 19th, but was postponed due to delay in completion of its post production work.
Dileep appears in seven different getups, donning the character of a hi tech thief called Kattila Gopalan, whose style is to rob only the kattila (doorjambs) of houses under construction. Newcomer Sunitha Varma alias Radha is the heroine; her funny posters have already become the talk of the town. Crazy Gopalan has almost all Malayalam comedy stars.
Ullattil Sasidharan is producing the film under the banner of Bhavana Media. Script is by the director himself. D. Kannan is the man behind the camera. Music is by Rahul Raj and lyrics by Giresh Puthencheri and Anil Panachooran. Other cast members include Biju Menon, Jagathy, Hari Sree Asokan, Salim Kumar, Janardhanan, Kochu Preman and others.
