Mammootty's 'Thoppil Joppan' will surprisingly go against Mohanlal's 'Pulimurugan'.
Surprisingly Mammootty-Andrea Jeremiah starrer Thoppil Joppan is also scheduled for its release this Friday. This comedy entertainer has been produced by Noushad Alathur of Grande Film Corporation and directed by Johny Antony. The film has the star cast of Mamta Mohandas, Kaviyoor Ponnamma, Salim Kumar, Mohan Jose, Saju Navodaya, Harisree Ashokan, Renji Panicker, Sreejith Ravi and Jude Antony Joseph in the supporting roles.
The script of Thoppil Joppan, written by Nishad Koya, narrates about a Kabbadi player who lives in Kattappana and is obsessed with alcohol consumption. Mammootty has essayed the title character. Sunoj Velayudham has handled the camera while Ranjan Abraham has done the cuts on the table. Vidya Sagar has scored the musical melodies for the film.
Thoppil Joppan, which has bagged a clean 'U' certificate, is screening along Mohanlal's 'U' certified Pulimurugan after setting records with its first and second teaser releases, but, the final success could always be achieved with the audience support alone.
