Veteran Malayalam star Mammootty will soon be seen playing the role of a cop in the eagerly-awaited ‘Streetlights’. And, as expected, the film has created a buzz amongst his die-hard fans. The official first look poster of the film was released a few days ago and it led to rumours of ‘Streetlights’ being a dark drama. During a recent chat with New Indian Express, director Shamdath said that contrary to perception—‘Streetlights’ is a complete entertainer and not just a dark drama.
“It is an entertainer. Sure, there are elements like murder and fights, but it is definitely a pleasant watch. It is a complete package with humour, crime and every other element,” added Shamdath.
Besides this, the filmmaker also revealed that ‘Streetlights’ will revolve around how people often get connected to our lives because of a mere coincidence.
“We see a lot of people, but then some of them may get connected to us by coincidence. Streetlights explores such a thread,” he added.
Interestingly, ‘Streetlights’ has been shot simultaneously in Tamil and Malayalam. Explaining the major differences between both versions, Shamdath said that Tamil version will be a bit serious in nature while the Mollywood version will have more humour in it.
“The treatment is different for both versions. While Tamil will have a serious treatment, the Malayalam version has more humour in it,” he added.
Well, this is a nice revelation and is bound to add to the buzz surrounding ‘Streetlights’. If all goes as planned, the film will hit screens in November.
