Sathyan Anthikkad's Varavelppu was one of the most sardonic movies
to have ever been made in Mollywood and it narrated the fate of
NRI's who decide to start any fresh endeavor in the state. The
movie is still named and discussed every time a discussion on NRI
endeavors comes up. In the film, Mohanlal, was thrown into mayhem,
after he announced his decision to buy a route bus and run it in
his village lanes.
There was also Ee Parakkum Thalika featuring Dileep, which also
had a similar storyline about a bus owner and a bus in ruin. Both
of the films were super successes for their lead stars. Jayaram is
now getting ready to play the role of a private bus owner. His
character in the new film Kudumbashree Travels will be that of a
bus owner. It is in its final stages of pre production. The movie
will be directed by debutant director Kiran.
In the meantime, Jayaram's latest movie Makeup Man, which is
directed by Shafi, is getting ready on the sets at Ernakulam.
