Thoppil Joppan, the Mammootty starrer will hit the theatres on October 7. In a recent interview given to a popular online media, writer Nishad Koya revealed some interesting details about Thoppil Joppan.
The writer, who assured that the movie is a complete fun package, says that Thoppil Joppan cannot be compared with Mammootty's yesteryear blockbuster Kottayam Kunjachan. He says that it is pointless to compare both the films.
According to Nishad, there is nothing similar between both the films, except the fact Mammootty's character is an 'achayan'. The megastar's character in Thoppan Joppan has no similarities with Kottayam Kunjachan.
Joppan is a very interesting character, which has a genuine humour touch. It is the humour element and realistic narrative style, which attracted Mammootty the most. He agreed to do the project without a second thought.
Interestingly, Mammootty is playing a middle-aged planter who hails from Thopramkudy, of Idukki district. He is using the Idukki slang for his role, which is a very normal character with no larger-than-life elements.
The movie, which marks the comeback of director Johny Antony, stars Mamtha Mohandas and Andrea Jeremiah in the female leads. Thoppil Joppan is produced by Noushad Alathoor for Grande Productions.
