Mammootty plays Major Sivaraman, a National Security Guard (NSG) officer, in Major Ravi’s ‘Mission 90 Days’. Major Ravi was the one who searched down Sivarasan, one of the main convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, and killed him. So this film will give first-ever, in-depth information about the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi. It will be a big challenge for Major Ravi because expectations are sky high after ‘Keerthichakra’.
Shooting of the film started by mid-April and is planned as a 40 days at a stretch schedule. The film will be released on 6th of July. It is being shot at Kochi, Chennai and Bangalore.
The film tells the story of Major Sivaraman, the special officer in charge of the investigation of Rajiv Gandhi assassination. They track down the convicts in 90 days, thus the title. The film not only deal with the nail-biting investigation and the final showdown with Sivarasan, it also shows the emotional turmoil that the team went through during the period.
One of the interesting thing they have used real names for the characters in the movie. They haven’t changed the names of Rajiv Gandhi, Sivarasan, Nalini, Thanu etc
Tulip Joshi, a North Indian actress is also playing an important role in the film, which also has Lalu Alex, Kalabhavan Mani, Sai Kumar, Innocent, Kiran Raj and Baburaj among others. Cochin Haneefa plays a NSG doctor, who is specially trained to rescue convicts trying to suicide using cyanide, and to give medical assistance to the squad. Apart from Mammootty, the special squad consists of Jolly, Dennis, Shyam and Anil. Like Major Ravi, Anil was also in original NSG squad that hunted down Sivarasan. Shyam is a popular VJ of Kiran TV. Kiran Raj plays a CBI officer and Lalu Alex a DIG.
Major Ravi who has also written the script says it will give inside account on the Rajiv Gandhi assassination investigation. But the director has clarified that the movie will not discuss any historical or political issues regarding the assassination. Thiru is the cameraman of this racy thriller being made by Sasi Ainchira for Sri Utrithati films. The film is scheduled to release in the first week of July.
