Aashiq Abu who delivered back to back successful Malayalam films, Salt N’Pepper and 22 Female Kottayam, disappointed a bit with his last film- Da Thadiya. However his keenness to explore various interesting subjects and not gunning for big stars alone is making him quite a filmmaker to look forward to in Malayalam Cinema. Aashiq Abu now returns with his forthcoming film Idukki Gold which is based on a short story of the same name written by Santosh Echikkanam. Produced by M.Ranjith, the film is written by Dileesh Nair and Shyam Pushkaran while Bijibal is the music composer, Shyju Khalid the DOP and V.Sajan the editor.
Idukki Gold is the story of 5 friends and an important person in their life. The film’s star cast includes Prathap Pothen, Babu Antony, Maniyanpilla Raju, Raveendran (who recently made a comeback with Kili Poyi), Vijayaraghavan, Lal, Joy Mathew, Sajitha Madathil etc. The film is due for release on 11th October.
