Another adman is into films. Ad filmmaker Sunil Ibrahim of Thiruvananthapuram-based Vibezon Concepts, is all set for the release of his debut movie ‘Chapters’. Sunil, who also did the script for the movie, says the film has nothing to do with hero-heroine concept. The theme being ‘there is a story in every person’, it delves into the lives of as many as 20 characters with almost equal prominence.
Presence of youngsters, new style of presentation ... Is it a new generation film? “Every new film is new-gen. But if you meant a film set against a metro backdrop, then no. Most of the characters in the film have village background. The character played by Nivin Pauly is a villager who dreams of a Gulf job. Gautami Nair’s character is an engineering student who struggles to fit among her friends in the city. Other characters too are middle class people whom we could relate with,” says Sunil. The film has the presence of a bunch of youngsters while Sreenivasan and KPAC Lalitha play major roles.
Though Sunil struggled for years to be a part of the film industry, the road to his debut movie, surprisingly, was an easy one. “It was not difficult to find a producer for ‘Chapters’ as Shafeer Sait, a production controller, expressed readiness to produce it soon after he read the script,” Sunil says who also adds that fine-tuning of the script was a joint effort by team Vibezon. Ironically, Sunil had struggled for two years to find a producer for other two subjects he had in mind. The director refuses to divulge more on the subject as it would kill the suspense of the movie. It took only 28 days for Sunil and his team to complete the shooting. “We sent a clear report of the shooting to the producer everyday. Everything was well planned and the shooting was completed in 28 days,” Sunil says.
Other major actors in the film are Hemant, Rejath Menon, Vineeth Kumar, Dharmajan, Aju Varghese, Vijeesh, Lena and Riya Saira. The movie is produced by Qurban films and Campus Oaks. The cinematography is by Krish Kaimal. Mejo Joseph composed music. The promotional album sung by Mejo, Franco, Anna Kathrina and Sithara was released recently. ‘Chapters’ will hit the screens on December 7.
