Gopi and Shaji Kailas, the popular actor-director
duo, is all set to team again for a political thriller, which has
been titled The State. Suresh Gopi will play a
tough police officer in the movie.
As per the reports, The State revolves around the present social
scenario of Kerala. Suresh Gopi essays ADGP Ravi Varma, who
investigates an infamous case which turns the political atmosphere
of Kerala up-side-down.
Popular South Indian actress Sukanya will play a key role in the movie.
Vijayaraghavan, Siddique and Suraj Venjarammoodu will appear in the
other important roles. The State is penned by Rajesh
Shaji Kailas and Suresh Gopi last teamed up for the movie
The King And The
Commissioner, which also had Mammootty in the lead role.
Despite the initial hype, the movie miserably failed to impress the
audience and critics.
It is a low phase in Shaji Kailas's career. The once hitmaker
has been delivering back to back box office failures since last few
years. He was also harshly criticized by the critics, for the
repetitive themes of his films.
Suersh Gopi, who has recently appointed as the chairman of
National Film Development Corporation, is also busy in his career
with a handful of promising projects. His upcoming movie My
God will hit the theatres soon.
