Idiyan Chandhu teaser promises an action entertainer

The teaser of Vishnu Unnikrishnan’s upcoming Malayalam movie, Idiyan Chandhu, has been released. The film seems to have been inspired by true events and is expected to be an action entertainer.

Idiyan Chandhu teaser features Vishnu Unnikrishnan as a plus-two student who gets involved in a fight with a goon (played by Kichu Tellus) on the school premises. The teaser also showcases Chandu Salim Kumar in a key role.

The movie has stunt sequences choreographed by Peter Hein, renowned for his work in films like Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Pulimurugan (2016).

Idiyan Chandhu was written and directed by Kuttanadan Marpappa (2018)-fame Sreejith Vijayan. It will be released in theatres on 19 July.

The Malayalam movie also features Lena, Lalu Alex, I M Vijayan, Jayashree Sivadha, Vidhya Vijay, Chandu Salimkumar, Fukru, Sooraj Thelakkad, Johny Antony, Ramesh Pisharody, Biju Sopanam, and Sminu Sijo.

The cinematography of the movie is handled by Vignesh Vasu and the editing by V Saajan. The music is scored by Aravind R Warrier and Minshad Zara, while the background score is composed by Deepak Dev.

It is produced by Shafeek, Subair, Rayees, Vishnu Unnikrishnan, and Sreejith under the banner of Happy Productions.

Vishnu Unnikrishnan is popular for his performances in Dance Party (2013) and Kallanum Bhagavathiyum (2023). He made his directorial debut Vedikettu (2023), where he played the lead along with his long-time actor-friend Bibin George. Both actors are known for their comedy roles.

Meanwhile, Chandu Salim Kumar is expected to play a good role in the flick. He played key roles in the recent releases, Manjummel Boys and Nadikar. While Majummel Boys became a blockbuster hit by grossing over ₹200 crore globally, Nadikar failed to meet the expectations at the box office. However, Tovino Thomas won praise for his one-man show in the film.

Meanwhile, the producers of Manjummel Boys were in the news recently for committing financial fraud following which, the Enforcement Directorate took up the case and launched a probe.
