Scriptwriter-turned-director B. Unnikrishnan's upcoming Sureshgopi starrer I.G., produced by Mahi under the banner of Super films, is scheduled to hit theatres on April 7. The movie will be released in 65 theatres all across Kerala. After Smart City (2006), an average flick at the box office, this is the second time that B. Unnikrishnan teams up with Sureshgopi.
I.G. is a cop story which shows how youths are trained by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET) in Pakistan to be sent as suicide bombers in various parts of our country. Sureshgopi plays IG Durga Prasad, an Anti-Terrorism Squad chief. This police thriller is scripted by the director himself.
I.G. has Jagathy Sreekumar, Vijayaraghavan, Devan, Govind Padmasuriya, Rajan P. Dev, Aashish Vidyarthi, Nandhinee, Lakshmi, Anaida Nair and John Kokkan in prominent roles. Cinematography is by Shyam Dutt. M. Jayachandran has set music to lyrics by Gireesh Puthencherry.
Meanwhile, will director B. Unnikrishnan's next venturel mark the Malayalam debut of Tamil super heroine Trisha? If reports are to be believed, Trisha is the heroine in this yet-to-be-titled film with Dileep as hero. But it is also heard that Unnikrishnan's Trisha starrer would have superstar Mohanlal as the hero, not Dileep, as Mohanlal and Unnikrishnan had agreed last year to make a film under the banner of the same Vaishakha Movies. However, the details are yet to be announced.
