Mollywood superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal shared the motion poster of Prithviraj Sukumaran’s upcoming film titled Kaapa on their social media pages. Manju Warrier, Anna Ben, and Asif Ali appear as illustrations against landmarks of Thiruvananthapuram in the motion poster. The film is directed by Venu, and the story and screenplay are by popular Malayalam writer GR Indugopan. The film title refers to the KAAPA Act or the Kerala Anti-Social Activities Act, 2007, which puts people who are a threat to society in prison. In other words, it is the Goonda Act of Kerala for action against ‘goons’, but has always come under criticism for being draconian and subject to misuse.
Mammootty and Mohanlal’s posts say, “This is a venture initiated by FEFKA Writers Union and I wish them all the very best!”
Veteran actor Nandhu becomes the narrator of the short motion poster, which shows Thiruvananthapuram’s famous landmarks as the Padmanabha Swamy Temple, the Secretariat, the Kovalam lighthouse, the central railway station, the Palayam mosque, the Connemara market, and the East Fort. Nandhu explains the Goonda Act and refers to Kerala’s Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan reviving the act four years ago when a certain crime happens in Ernakulam. The intelligence made a list of 2011 goons out of which 237 are in Thiruvananthapuram, Nandhu explains and adds, “that’s the time all of this happens here.”
