Hello! In this episode, Deepauk, Anantha and Aditya talk about Roby Varghese Raj’s Kannur Squad starring Mammootty, Rony David Raj, Azees Nedumangad, Kishore and others. The film is a thriller based on a real squad of police officers who are tasked with the toughest cases.
The film is very similar to last year’s Kuttavum Shikshayum directed by Rajeev Ravi and H Vinoth’s Tamil film Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru. Both the films, like Kannur Squad, feature a team of police officers operating beyond their familiar turf, traveling to different parts of the country in search of criminals on the run. We also look at how the films stack up and what they do differently with familiar premise.
We also talk about Mammootty who is having a terrific late innings in his career and a particularly great 2023 with Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam (check out our episode on the film), Kannur Squad and Jeo Baby’s Kaathal The Core that is currently in theatres. Listen on. Also available on Spotify, Apple and wherever you get your podcasts!
