Nivin Pauly introduced the characters to be played by Sunny Wayne, Babu Antony and Shine Tom Chacko in Kayamkulam Kochunni.

Nivin Pauly’s film Kayamkulam Kochunni is set in the early 19th century and is about a highway robber Kochunni. The biopic has acquired good buzz due to the teaser that was released recently and now Nivin has took to Twitter to introduce three pivotal characters from the film.

The actor shared the looks of the characters and wrote, “Introducing the versatile #BabuAntony as #Thangal, the super talented #SunnyWayne as #Keshavan and the ever shining #ShineTomChacko as #Kochupilla!”

The film also stars Mohanlal who appears in an extended cameo. Priya Anand is paired opposite Nivin in the film.

In the trailer, we saw that Kochunni tried to get formal training in Kalaripayattu, which is a martial art form. However, because he is labelled a shudra, the masters refuse to take him as a student. This, combined with other injustices, leads to him becoming a thief who steals from the rich and distributes among the poor.

The film is set in an era when the East India Company was trying to get a strong foothold in India.

Kayamkulam Kochunni is directed by Rosshan Andrrews and written by Bobby and Sanjay. The film is produced under the banner, Sree Gokulam Movies and is expected to release in August. The music for the movie is composed by Gopi Sunder.
