The first superhero movie 'The Gambler' is all set to hit screens on Friday. Although the movie directed by Tom Immatty is tagged as a superhero film, it has a strong plot involving a father and son's bonding.
The recently released trailer of the movie showed how a father teaches his boy the little things in life. A promo video featuring these onscreen father and son - Anson and George from the film has been released online.
The over one-minute long video opens as a dedication to all fathers and goes on with the lines, “Papa Papa you are my role model papa.”
While the song is rendered by Bagya Sudheer, the video is conceptulized and directed by Ajmal Latheef. Shyam Ks is the DOP and Ansar Ansari has headed the editing. Watch the video here:
Earlier, in an exclusive interview with Onmanorama, Anson had revealed that the role was tailor-made for him by director Tom Immatty. “I met Tom during the shoot of Abrahamite Santhathikal in which his son George played my younger role. We bonded during the time and that was when he opened an idea about a superhero concept. I was intrested and that's how he began writing the story keeping me in mind.”
For the unknown, Tom Immatty made his debut with the movie 'Oru Mexican Aparatha' before which he was a physics teacher.
Apart from Anson and George, 'The Gambler' will mark the debut of actress Dayyana Hameed as the female lead along with veteran stars including Innocent and Salim Kumar.
