Jagathy Sreekumar at the shooting location of 'CBI 5 The Brain'
Jagathy Sreekumar joined in the upcoming Mammootty-starrer ‘CBI 5 The Brain’. The movie will be the fifth in the series of investigation thrillers depicting the CBI officer Sethuramayyar. K Madhu will direct the movie based on the script of SN Swamy just like its prequels.
In all the previous movies, Jagathy Sreekumar played the role of the character Vikram who was a companion of the central figure. The return of Jagathy after a break of a long period to the cinema has cheered his fans. Jagathy had stepped aside from the film industry after a major car crash in 2012.
Director Madhu had shared a picture of Jagathy with Mammootty, Mukesh and SN Swami with a caption conveying his happiness in getting Jagathy in the team.
The shooting of the movie is proceeding under the production of Sarghachitra. The new movie aids the comeback of Sarghachitra productions which created many blockbusters earlier in Malayalam. The first movie in the series ‘CBI Diary Kurippukal’ was a box office hit when it was released in 1988. Later the other movies ‘Jagratha’ (1989), ‘Sethuramayyar CBI’ (2004) and ‘Nerariyan CBI’ (2005) were also released.
It is for the first time in the Malayalam film industry that the same director, scriptwriter and actor join together for five sequels of a storyline.
Ranji Panicker, Sai Kumar, Soubin Shahir, Mukesh, Anoop Menon, Dileesh Pothan, Ramesh Pisharody, Prathap Pothan, Edavela Babu, Asha Sharath, Kaniha, Malavika Menon, Ansiba and Santhosh Keezhattoor are also playing major roles in the movie.
