Malayalam superstar Mammootty's upcoming Malayalam film Ee Pattanathil Bhootham is directed by Johny Antony of CID Moosa, Kochi Raajaavu and Thuruppugulaan fame. As the name suggests, Ee Pattanathil Bhootham is a fantasy-filled adventure, donning Mammootty in a double role as a bike jumper named Jimmy in a circus company and a friendly ghost! The film has been scripted by Siby K. Thomas and Udayakrishnan, the hit pair of blockbuster Twenty:20.
The story revolves around an orphan Jimmy brought up by Krishnettan (Innocent), who runs a street circus group. Jimmy rescues a couple of street children from some goons and they become part of the street circus group, which is later merged with a commercial circus company, run by Philipose (Janaradhanan) and his daughter Ancy (Kavya Madhavan), a management graduate. While Jimmy is away, the kids again run into some trouble. However, they are rescued by a ghost who only they can see. The film develops from this point.
Produced under the banner of Hi Bright Movie Creations, the film has cinematography by Azhagappan and music by debutant music director Shaan Rahman. Kavya Madhavan has already appeared in six films with Mammootty, but never as his heroine. For the first time in her career, she is Mammootty's heroine in Ee Pattanathil Bhootham, which is expected to hit theatres during Vishu 2009. Also in the cast are Jagathy Sreekumar, Innocent, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Salim Kumar and others. The film has plenty of graphics and special effects.
