'Vincent Kombana in Varikuzhiyile Kolapathakam is a peculiar character'
...says Amit Chakkalackal, who plays a pastor entrusted with the charge of a church located on an island, in the film, which comes out on Friday
Actor Amit Chakkalackal doesn’t think he has a lot of fans, and so is concerned about the reception to his new film, Varikuzhiyile Kolapathakam, because “people are usually drawn to a film with a major star attached to it.”
“We are solely banking on the film’s content, which I believe is fresh and well-made, to generate positive word-of-mouth,” says the actor, who plays a pastor entrusted with the charge of a church, located on an island.
On his character, Amit says, “Vincent Kombana is a peculiar character. He is immensely benevolent to those who love him and uses his brawns to deal with those who don’t, especially troublemakers who tell him to mind his own business.”
“The film revolves around one crime and the ensuing investigation which is conducted in a realistic manner,” he adds. “Vincent is someone who carries the instincts of a shrewd police officer but has ended up as a pastor. He starts investigating the crime on his own despite his limitations.”
Varikuzhiyile Kolapathakam also stars Dileesh Pothan, Lena, Nedumudi Venu, Anjali Upasana, Shammi Thilakan, and Sudhi Koppa, among others. It comes out in theatres on Friday.
