Malayalam cinema is not new to the poltical satire genre. Some of the best films in this genre come from Malayalam filmmakers. How debutant Fellini has apprached this subject will be an interesting watch. The film is written by Vini Viswa Lal of Second Show fame.
Tovino's latest release was Maradona. Both these movies had been waiting for months to release. With Maradona out of the way it is time for Theevandi. There is no doubt about Tovino's acting talent. In Maradona too his work has been appreciated, though the violent content in the movie has come in for some flak.
