D irector V. K. Prakash is making a laugh riot of a movie titled ‘Three Kings,' with Kunchacko Boban, Indrajith and Jayasurya in the lead. The shooting of the movie is currently on at a hall at Hotel Avenue Centre, Kochi. The scene being canned is that of a birthday party.

“The story is about three cousins who belong to a family that is struggling to make ends meet. The three, however, can't stand each other. They are in a race to make a fast buck and make it big. Each one makes the going tough for the other two and it all adds to the fun,” says Prakash, who recently released a Kannada film ‘Aidu Ondla Aidhu' and ‘Karma Yogi' in Malayalam.

Birthday prank

Cinematographer Venu focusses the camera on Indrajith who is all set to cut his birthday cake. He cuts the cake but is in for a rude shock after he takes a bite of a slice. He can't open his mouth.

The next scene shows us the reason why, as the camera zooms in on Jayasurya. He has a wicked smile on his face and a can of glue in his hand.

“It is pure madness most of the time, which translates into funny moments on screen,” says Indrajith, who plays Bhasi, a youngster who is trying to make a mark on the cricket field.

‘Kadhal' Sandya plays his girlfriend Manju. Jayasurya's character is a tele-screen actor called Sankar. He sports a tiny ponytail for the role. Anju (Samvrutha Sunil) is his love. The actor will be singing a spoof of the hit YouTube album ‘Silsila hai silsila…,' which became a rage in Kerala for all the wrong reasons. The makers of the original version of the song were present for the song's recording, says Jayasurya.

Kunchacko Boban plays Ram in ‘Three Kings' who is “trying to make a fast buck by partaking in various reality shows on television. Ann Augustine, who plays Ranju in the movie, has a crush on him,” says the genial actor.

‘Three Kings' is being produced under the banner of KNM Films. Lyrics by Shibu Chakravarthy have been set to music by Ouseppachan. Still photographer is Mahadevan Thampy.
