Brother follows in RP's footsteps

Saturday, August 20, 2011 • Malayalam Comments

RP Patnaik's brother Gautham Patnaik's directorial debut Keratam is all set to hit the marquee soon.  Like his brother who debuted with (the very forgettable) Andamaina Manasulo and fizzled out after Broker, Gautham is directing a message-oriented film.  The film is a remake of the Kannada film Josh.  It stars Siddharth Rajkumar (cousin of Prabhas) in the lead.

The film's subject goes something like this.  The protagonist falls in love quite early (even by the standards of 2011) in 10th standard and flunks badly.  Keratam tracks his destruction after he falls in love and the loss he suffers in life.  Almost everyone, his friends and family abandon him and he is left a destitute.

Ultimately, the film holds out the message that it is not wise to neglect studies and spoil the career for the sake of love.

The makers promise that the climax will be heart-touching and thought-provoking.
