Bharatanatyam dancer-turned-actress Vimala Raman, who was lucky enough to get a handful of offers from some big banners and directors even before the release of her first movie in Malayalam, Time, directed by Shaji Kailas, is to do the key role in Apoorva to be directed by debutante Nithin Ramakrishnan.
Vimala, who won the Miss India Australia 2004 title and the Miss India Australia Cyber Queen title, is the only actress in Malayalam who has acted with almost all biggies in the industry in the beginning of her career itself (Time with Suresh Gopi, Nasrani with Mammootty, Romeo and Calcutta News with Dileep and College Kumaran with Mohanlal). Her plus point is that she has an unique blend of young looks and mature behaviour, which make her he right choice to act with the seniors and newcomers alike.
Produced by Dr. Samson and Dr. Ramakrishnan under the banner of Gauri Creations, Apoorva features story and script by Nithin himself. The story is about adolescence, relationships and friendships of school life. The film is made on a one crore budget. Music is by Vidhyadharan Master and camera has been handled by Jithu.
The cast includes Kalabhavan Mani, Jagathy Sreekumar, Tamil actor Senthil, Sanjeev, Helen, Kalpana, Ajay Sathyan, Anirudh Rajasekhar, Nithish, Preethi, Baby Minu, Master Ananthu, etc.
