Director Gireesh’s Nee Ko Njaa Chaa is a rom-com
The curiously titled Nee Ko Njaa Chaa, written and directed by Gireesh, stands for ‘Ninnem Kollum Njanum Chaavum’. Translated into English, it means ‘I’ll kill you and then kill myself’.
“Nee Ko Njaa Chaa is a romantic comedy thriller that deals with relationships and break-ups. The on-off relationships, the transitions, and the ups and downs in the life of three men and how they tackle these situations are narrated in the movie,” says Gireesh. He has assisted Shyamaprasad and Lal Jose in various movies.
Sunny Wayne, who shot to fame playing the quirky Kurudi in Second Show and also in a brief role in Thattathin Marayathu, plays Roshan, a cosmetic surgeon in Nee Ko Njaa Chaa. Sunny’s character is a hardcore romantic at heart.
Joe (Praveen) is a programme producer in a television channel. He is a highly emotional person and does not handle crunch situations well. Abu (Sanju) works as an assistant director in films. He is the coolest of the three. He view the lives of his friends from the perspective of a filmmaker. His character has been presented as an extension of the viewer. Then there is Peter (Shani), a television cameraman.
Among the female leads, Anjali (Sija Rose) essays a hotel receptionist, Ann Mathew (Poojitha) an anchor, while Alice (Rohini Idiculla) and Saniya (Parvathi) are medical students.
Gireesh agrees that “as the trailers suggests, the film is pretty bold but is light-hearted and fresh. It was not easy moulding the young and relatively inexperienced cast into their respective characters but I am happy with the way the film has turned out. We have shot a major portion of the film in Goa.”
Nee Ko Njaa Cha is being produced under the banner of Urvasi Theatres by Sandeep Senan and Anish M. Thomas. Neil D’ Cunha is the cinematographer and Prasant Pillai is the music director.
