There is no point in guessing Mammootty’s role in upcoming film Street Lights. It’s a crime thriller in which Mammuka is playing a cop one more time. He has a special assignment that is off the record and he takes it up because there’s something ‘special’ about the case. From the trailer, the film looks like a blend of crime and comedy genres. The movie also stars popular stunt choreographer Stunt Silva in a pivotal role.
The film boasts of slow motion sequence that captures a car coming to a halt, Mammootty getting off the car, banging the car door shut, so on and so forth. Yet another Mammootty special is what you are thinking. But there is a way this film can be salvaged into a decent movie - the supporting characters.
The other characters in the film are a man who conceals his identity and behaves like a thief in the dark (Dharmajan Bolgatty), a girl who loves her facials (Lijomol Jose) and a man who follows her around (Soubin Shahir) - there is potential for sure. This is cinematographer Shamdat Sainudeen’s debut film as director.
The trailer tries its best to use the Malayalam superstar’s popularity in its favour. For example, there is a scene where James’ (Mammootty) investigation brings him across the state border and he investigates Rajendran in Tamil. We then see Mammootty crediting Rajinikanth’s films for his interest in the language - a very cliched mention of another superstar to evoke whistles and claps in theatres.
This movie is produced by Playhouse Productions and the trailer has been released by actor Mammootty on his Facebook page. He also confirmed the release date and wrote, “Here is Official Trailer of Street Lights Directed By Shamdat Sain , Produced By Playhouse Release. Hitting Screen On January 26 , 2018.”
