Jayaram to play a government officer in Pattabhiraman

The Kannan Thamarakulam directorial is touted as a 'message-driven thriller packaged' with humour

Published: 11th March 2019

Jayaram will be working with director Kannan Thamarakulam for the fourth time with Pattabhiraman. The title poster was released recently by the makers. The director’s collaboration with Jayaram first began with Thinkal Muthal Velli Vare, followed by Aadupuliyattam, and Achayans.

Jayaram plays Pattabhiraman, a government officer in the film, which also stars actors Baiju Santosh,  Hareesh Kanaran, Dharmajan, and Ramesh Pisharody in important roles. The film will see Jayaram once again teaming up with his Aadupuliyattam co-star Sheelu Abraham. 

“Through the film, we intend to expose some evils of society that most of us are not aware of,” says Thamarakulam. “We hope to openly make some big statements about certain socio-political issues, but at the same time, it won’t be a completely serious film. It’s a message-laden story packaged in the right dose of humour.”

When asked if it’s a challenge to present such films to the public in today’s atmosphere, he says, “Yes, it can be a challenge but we can’t be silent about everything, right? A lot of research has gone into this script. It was a year-long process,” he adds.

The story will be set primarily against the backdrop of Thiruvananthapuram, the makers have also planned to shoot in Tirunelveli and Munnar in a single schedule. The shoot will commence in the final week of March.

With music by M Jayachandran the film is bankrolled by Abraham Mathew,  under the banner of Abaam Movies, the same company behind films like Puthan Panam, Puthiya Niyamam, and Solo.

Meanwhile, Jayaram has Aneesh Anwar’s Grandfather and Sanil Kalathil’s Marconi Mathai (also starring Vijay Sethupathi) in his kitty.
