The climax of Prithviraj's latest starrer Lollypop directed by Shafi has been changed just one day after its release on Sunday (December 21). According to reports, the decision came after Mulagupadam Films, the distributers, urged the producer to change the climax since the initial collections and audience reaction were discouraging.
In the original version, Lollypop begins withe scenes of a jetty where a novelist (Jagathy Sreekumar) is stranded after missing the previous night's last boat. In a bid to pass time, he strikes up a conversation with the only other person there Francis (Jayasurya), who starts narrating a flashback, the story of Lollypop. In the new edition, there is no flashback episode and Jayasurya is no longer a ghost! The conversation between Jagathy Sreekumar and Jayasurya has also been deleted.
Lollypop is about Franco (Prithviraj), his sister Jenny (Roma), Franco's friend Eby (Kunchacko Boban), Jenny's collegemate Rose (Bhavana) and Paachi (Jayasurya). Prithviraj appears as the owner of an automobile workshop.
Kunchako Boban plays a junior doctor, while Jayasurya plays a pickpocket. Lollypop has been scripted by Benny P. Nayarambalam and music is by Alex Paul.
