Rajesh Pillai

The fact that "Vettah" is the directorial venture of Rajesh Raman Pillai is the USP of the movie as the filmmaker has already proved his talent with the movies "Traffic" and "Mili," which still remains in the mind of the audience. The upcoming thriller is also expected to repeat the success of his previous movies.


"Vettah" is said to be a psychological thriller, a genre that is not very familiar for the Kerala audience. Therefore, the movie is expected to make a mark following the steps of "Traffic" and "Mili." "Rajesh as a director always tries to given an emotional angle to his thriller movies and I believe he has given importance to feelings and emotions in 'Vettah' as well," said Kunchacko Boban, while sharing his experience in working in the movie.

Manju Warrier

He has claimed that the movie is very thrilling and that the audience will never get a chance to even check their mobile phone while watching the movie. He has also hinted that the mystery will haunt the minds of the audience throughout the movie. Indrajith has shined as a police officer many times before and he will be seen as ACP Sailex Abraham in the movie. "Vettah" also has Bhama, Vijayaraghavan, Prem Prakash, Deepak Parambol and Rony David Raj in pivotal roles.
