Role Models, a malayalam comedy starring Fahadh Faasil and Namitha Pramod in the lead roles, is gearing up for release this friday. This film has been written and directed by Rafi, who gave us Shajahanum Pareekuttiyum last year. The youthful vibe of this film has managed to pique the interest of the audience. This out and out entertainer is ready well in time for the Eid season.
Apart from Fahadh and Namitha, the film’s star cast includes Vinayakan, Soubin Shahir, Srinda Arhaan, Renji Pankicker and Seetha among others. The plot of the film spans across two timeframes, when Gautham (Fahadh Faasil) is a student and then when he is an engineer. The story highlights the life of this young man, whose parents are college professors and are of the opinion that Gautham, their only child, will fall into bad company in college and ruin his prospects of a fruitful career and life. This over protectiveness from Gautham’s parents’ leads to a lack of freedom and interaction with the students in his college. He fails to develop communication and other life skills that are imperative in today’s day and age. But then years later a group of his college mates and him reunite and take a trip to Goa that proves to be life changing for him.
The film has a realistic take on life and is sure to connect with a lot of youth in the country. The film’s music is already a rage and the song Thechille Penne is viral on social media which talks about the ‘theppu’ phenomenon. The music for the film has been composed by Gopi Sunder.
