Varikuzhiyile Kolapathakam, written and directed by Rajish Midhila and starring Amith Chakalakkal in the lead role released a few days back and opened to mixed response from theaters. The film had a novel subject and the treatment had doses of both a thriller and a humor film. Rejish says that he never expected to deliver a superhit with the film but is happy with how the film has turned out to be- both content-wise and at the box office. Dileesh Pothan also played a pivotal role in the film. Rejish says that many producers backed off as they wanted a popular young hero to play the lead role. However, Rejish was adamant on Amith playing the hero.
