Narain upbeat about his new film

The actor talks about Adam Joan, his upcoming film which also features Prithviraj

It's been a year since Narain had his last release in Malayalam (Kavi Udheshichath) but the actor says the break wasn't intentional. "I was doing Othaikku Othai, a Tamil movie. Anyway, I guess Adam Joan will break the hiatus," he says.

Narain is quite upbeat about Adam Joan, which will hit the screens this month end. "This is a script I loved. Jinu [Abraham] has written a tight script. It is a family drama and a thriller woven together. Another fact is that this is the fourth time I get to work with Prithviraj. Thankfully, all our projects have done well. I hope this won't be any different," says Narain.

The actor plays Cyriac, Prithviraj's friend. "An incident takes place which affects Adam's (Prithviraj's character) life and family. The movie may have a dark undertone, but it is every bit a family thriller," says the actor.

Narain says there is a technical excellence in the making of Adam Joan. "Jinu has done an excellent job. The technical aspects of the movie are outstanding. One can see traces of it in the film's trailer," he adds.

He says shooting for the movie has been a different experience for him. "Almost 80 per cent of Adam Joan has been shot in Edinburgh, Scotland. We used to shoot for long, as there was daylight till late. So, all of us were travelling together and this gave us an opportunity to bond well. On a personal level, this has been a sort of reunion for me. The last time Prithviraj, and I worked together was for Robin Hood and I could relive those days," says Narain.

But what about his Tamil project? "Othaikku Othai was a nostalgic venture for me. My character has traces of my role in Classmates, like the fact that he falls in love with a purdah-clad girl and gets killed," he says.

The actor says he hopes to get more busy in the coming days. "I have a Malayalam project lined up. Then there is one in Telugu, too. I believe you will be able to see more of me in the coming days," says Narain.
