Aanandam fame Vishak Nair and Roshan Mathew are teaming up once again for an youthful entertainer. The movie, titled as Match Box will be directed by debutant Shivaram Mani. Newbies Kenny and Nidhin are jointly scripting this film. Drishya Raghunath who was noted for her performance in Happy Wedding has been roped in to play the female lead in this movie. Match Box will be a rom-com entertainer with an element of suspense.
The film is about four friends and the strong bond they share. Soon, Ambu falls in love and his friends provide him all support. Matchbox is essentially a youth entertainer, and Sivaram says he wanted to make a movie without the flavours of other movies on similar theme.“I know Premam and Aanandam were quite popular among youth. So, it was a challenge to stay true to the genre while making a film not influenced by these movies,” says the director.
There is friendship, love and fun, but above all Match Box is a coming-of-age tale, says director Sivaram Mony. Shot in Kozhikode, with all its intrinsic flavours, Matchbox narrates the tale of Ambu, played by Roshan Mathew, and his tryst with love and life. Matchbox, as the name suggests, is about how a few people fit perfectly in a box, or a society. Though there are four main characters in the movie, Matchbox is mainly about Ambu,” says Sivaram about his debut venture.
