Debutant director Srikantan has written his comedy-crime thriller film Thappu Thanda based on the characters from Kamal Haasan’s Mumbai Express. Thappu Thanda is gearing up for release this Friday, September 8th.
“The comedy in Mumbai Express is very different. You find the characters are doing something serious on screen but their actions make audiences laugh. The best example is of Pasupathy’s character in the film. This is the same template I have used for my film,” Srikantan said in a statement.
“Our film is on the lines of Soodhu Kavvum. The crime angle and its comic treatment will be the common elements. The story is set against the backdrop of election campaign and how the money exchanged during that period gets robbed,” he added.
