After days of anxious wait, the title of Suresh Gopi’s 250th movie was unveiled on October 26. At 6pm, celebrities, including Mohanlal and Mammootty released the title, and viewers were enthralled to hear the name of the movie: ‘Ottakomban’.
The title teaser of the movie also featured Suresh Gopi in his evergreen macho look, and the clip ended with that iconic ‘Kuruvacha’ background score which has already garnered audience attention.
The movie’s title also carried the tagline ‘Defending to Attack’. Interestingly, Suresh Gopi had previously delivered a similar punchline in the movie Time, directed by Shaji Kailas. In Time, Suresh Gopi’s character Appan Menon IPS often used to say ‘Attack is the best defence’, as he hunted down his enemies.
The official title teaser of the movie has already gone viral on online spaces. After watching the teaser, most of the viewers are lauding the makers for portraying Suresh Gopi in such an ultra mass avatar. Suresh Gopi is a master in crafting such roles with perfection; remember how he immortalized roles of Aanakkattil Chackochi in Lelam, and Thevakkattu Kuttappayi in Vaazhunnor.
As Suresh Gopi is once again doing the role of a feudal Christian landlord, audiences are expecting nothing less than real swag and an ultimate macho show on screen.
Debutante Mathew Thomas is directing Ottakomban. The film’s script is penned by Shibin Francis. The music of Ottakomban is by Harshavardhan Rameshwar who has previously worked in movies such as Arjun Reddy. Tomichan Mulakupadam is bankrolling this project in the banner of Mulakupadam films.
