After trekking on the path of adventure through the film The Last Supper, filmmaker Vinil Vasu is geared up with his next. Titled Hello Ajnabee, the film, which will be made in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada, is a love story woven against the backdrop of a thriller. Delving into the web of human relationships and psyche, the flick narrates the story of five people. “It is inspired from a real life incident which happened in Kochi that was once narrated to me by my wife. The whole plot revolves around four men and one woman,” says Vinil. The story, which unfurls in Mumbai, talks about the life of a couple and three people who come into their life. “It is a pure love story,” states Vinil, adding, “Generally if a partner faces any trouble in a relationship, normally he or she shares it with the other person. But sometimes individuals often take up the whole matter in their hands and try dealing with it alone. The movie discusses about this aspect as well.”
Not only is the movie about relationships, but it also throws light on a much more serious social issue that women in our country have to confront — the issue of stalking. Vinil goes on, “The movie sheds light on the issue of stalkers. Stalkers are a dangerous lot. If one knows who is stalking them, some precautions can be taken, but what if he is an unknown person?” He adds, “I want women to be prepared to handle various situations that they may have to confront. A woman who faces the issue of stalking, can choose to either bash him up or avoid him, or... just inform the right people.” Interestingly, Vinil has planned a different climax for the three films. “From the story there are three points raised in an incident and each climax answers that,” the director lets on.
In the multilingual flick, actor Reeth Mazumdar, who is known for her French films Swen (2012), The Au Revoir (2011) and Visible Bra Straps (2010), will be seen essaying the role of Jenny, a working woman. “Jenny is the protagonist of the movie,” reveals Vinil. Rahul Raveendran, who is famous for his roles in Ala Ela (Telugu), Moscowin Kavery (Tamil) and Vanakkam Chennai (Tamil) will be playing one of the lead roles in the movie. “He will play a police officer, while Govind Padmasoorya has a prominent role in the movie,” Vinil adds as he signs off. Vinay Pathak and Mahesh Manjrekar are other key players.
