Christian Brothers (2011)
Written by Admin
The movie hogged headlines from the very first moment of its launch, because of its multi-star cast and huge budget. Producers associations demanded to cut down the cost below three and half crores and to limit the shoot days and other related expenses which could never be realized for a film of such a scale. The shoot for the movie was indefinitely postponed in the month of November, due to these controversies. Anyhow, the association later had to revise its norms on making bigger films.
The movie as the title implies is all about a Christian family –the prestigious Palamattam Tharavadu, whose current heir, a patriotic Major Varghese and his two daughters and two sons. The eldest of them, Christy (Mohanlal) is a police informer working at Mumbai. Even no one in his home know what he is doing in Mumbai and brand him as a good for nothing son. His younger brother is Joby (Dileep) who has already jumped out of seminary, to realize his love affair with a girl. Varghese who has lost hope in his sons are now eager to marry off his daughters Jessy (Lakshmi Gopalswamy) and Stella (Kaniha), to some influential families. But all was not going well within the family as certain old enmities has sprout up to create havoc for Varghese and his dreams about a peaceful retired life.
The scenarist Udhay Krishna-Sibi K Thomas has opted for a different style of storytelling this time, focusing on various characters one after another and then linking the stories together at a certain point of time. The several twists and turns in the story will change the shade of characters, as they may not be the same as movie progresses through events and viewpoints. In this big canvas Suresh Gopi and Sarath Kumar appear in key points as pivotal characters, who have a big say in the events portrayed.
The movie is cinematographed by Anil Nair, who is for the first time working with Joshy. Kaithapram has penned the lyrics while Deepak Dev is in charge of the music section. ‘Christian Brothers’ will grace the theatres for this March.
