Actor Dulquer Salmaan, son of veteran Malayalam actor Mammootty, has generally been associated with romantic films such as OK Kanmani and 100 Days of Love. However, all that is set to change with the Malayalam gangster film Kammati Paadam which releases on May 20. The film will see Dulquer in his first-ever full-length action avatar.
“It’s a gangster flick featuring raw and realistic action. It will be Dulquer’s first attempt at doing a full-length action role and going by the response to the trailer, the film has already garnered lot of positive buzz ahead of its release,” said a source from the film’s unit.
Directed by Rajeev Ravi, the film is a journey into the troubled past of its protagonist. “The story unfolds between 1970 and 2000, and it shifts between Kochi and Mumbai, two key places where the film was predominantly shot,” he said.

Also starring Rasika Dugal, Shaun Romy, Vinay Fort and Shine Tom Chacko, the film has music by K. “The music in the film will fall in the psytrance space. I have experimented with electronic tunes throughout the film and the music will resonate,” said K.
Produced by Prem Menon under Global Unite Media, Kammati Paadam releases in nearly 300 screens worldwide on Friday.
