The first thing that strikes you about the Maradona trailer is how beautifully the film has been shot. Starring Tovino Thomas and Sharanya R Nair in lead roles, the film’s name may hark back to Argentine footballer Maradona but the film doesn’t have much to do with the sport. In fact, the mystery of the title is revealed early on when a little girl asks Tovino’s character who his most favourite person in the world is and he says, ‘Maradona’. She insists that he is supposed to say someone else’s name and we see visuals of Sharanya.
The film is a romantic thriller and the residents of the apartment where Tovino lives play a big part in it. While the visuals charm you from the first frame, the music is outstanding as well. Tovino and his friend (the beagle) have a beautiful time initially. The first few shots are seen through the filter of newfound love, until the music and mood changes to an urgent pace.
Ee Ma Yau star Chemban Vinod Jose plays a pivotal role in the film, and it looks like he might play a negative shade. Tovino is seen trailing someone as he lurks in the shadows trying to find something. There is talk of politics, blackmail and more, but all of it is on the surface so it’s unclear what the main conflict in this film is all about.
Directed by debutante Vishnu Narayanan, the film is produced by Mini Studios and the film is expected to release on June 22.
