‘Android Kunjappan’ sequel ‘Alien Aliyan’ will have a few of its characters, but a different story: Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval | Malayalam Movie News
While the poster had featured a different robot from the one in the prequel, the audience have been wondering what the new film has to offer. Director Ratheesh, who had also written Android Kunjappan, tells us, “It will be a science-fiction humor film, and we are in the final stage of the writing. A few of the actors from Android Kunjappan will appear in Alien Aliyan too, but it doesn’t have a major connection with the first part’s story. This film will have a completely different story, though the robot will make an appearance.”
Kunjappan’s tale was set with both Russia and Kerala as the backdrop; what about Alien Aliyan? “Its story is set in Kerala,” reveals Ratheesh, who adds that the film will start rolling by next year end. “It needs a bigger pre-production, though I’m not saying it is a big film. We still need a lot of computer graphics, efforts to put its robot together and the like. We are writing keeping all of this in mind, and only once it’s completed can we say how many characters from the first portion will appear in this story. We also have to see how much of it can be executed and how affordable the set up would be. As it is the pandemic period, we also have to see how far it will affect the whole process,” he explains.
A few months ago, Ratheesh had finished his second film Kanakam Kamini Kalaham featuring Grace Antony and Nivin Pauly in the lead, and also announced Nna… Thaan Case Kodu with Kunchacko Boban, Vinay Forrt and Saiju Kurup. “Kanakam Kamini Kalaham’s shoot was over and the post production works were on when the second wave hit, so we haven’t been able to complete it yet. But, it’s in the final stage and we should be able to bring out some updates on it soon. The Kunchacko-starrer’s pre-production has also started, and it should go on floors once he completes two of his other pending movies,” updates Ratheesh.
