award winner for best direction in 1994, T.V. Chandran has cast
Sureshgopi in a double role in his next film Bhoomi
Malayalam, which has begun shooting in Kannur. This is the
first time that Sureshgopi is acting in T.V. Chandran"s film.
The film's highlights, in addition to Sureshgopi, will be the
five female protagonists around whom the story revolves. Samvrutha
Sunil plays the role of a factory worker, Priyanka is an aspiring
athlete, Padmapriya is a bold TV journalist and Lakshmi Sharma is a
housewife. It is no wonder that T.V. Chandran is weaving a story
around female protagonists because several of his earlier movies
like Alicinte Anveshanam, Mangamma, Susanna and Padam Onnu: Oru
Vilapam were heroine-oriented.
Malayalam will focus on the social development of Kerala from
independence till date. Music is handled by Thomas Kottukapally and
K.G Jayan handles the camera.The film also has Arun, Govind
Padmasuriya, Nedumudi Venu, Irshad, Adnop Chandran and Kalabhavan
