'Don't judge by the teaser; Rosapoo is a clean entertainer'
Director Vinu Joseph says the teaser offers a sneak peak into the world of adult films, but that's just a part of the whole, and the next teaser will bring the other face of the film
The teaser of Biju Menon-starrer Rosapoo is out and is already garnering hits. But, it has managed to raise a few eyebrows as well. While the teaser hints at Biju Menon and team heading to Chennai to make an adult film, director Vinu Joseph says its too early to judge the genre of his directorial debut. He clarifies his film is indeed a clean family entertainer.
"The teaser has managed to get good response. But, many are sceptical about the film. True, the teaser offers a sneak peak into the world of adult films, but that's just a part of the whole. Our next teaser will bring the other face of the film. I can assure film lovers that Rosapoo is a very clean entertainer, made for families. But, it will appeal the youth as well," says Vinu Joseph.
The teaser has Biju Menon, Basil Joseph, Neeraj Madhav and Soubin Shahir in unique avatars. While it also hints at the glossy side of cinema, Vinu Joseph says it is just a little bit of the film.
"In fact, Rosapoo is a story that ranges from 2001 to 2017. The time period is clear in the narrative. It traces the start of the adult wave in Malayalam," he adds.
Tamil actor Anjali appears as an adult star in Rosapoo. "Well, she isn't Laila, around whom the teaser revolves. But, her character has a similar shade. It is a very performance oriented role and she was convinced about the character. She has done a great job," says Vinu.
Though initial plan of the team was to release it during Christmas, the makers have pushed the date to January. "There is a lot of post-production work. We hope to bring it to the theatres during January," says the filmmaker.
