The Mollywood filmmaker says the investigation thriller, which releases on February 12, is inspired by real-life case files from cyber police
In debutant director Tharun Moorthy’s Operation Java, the action moves to cyberspace. Tharun says he developed the story based on real-life incidents. “The basic thread of Operation Java is derived from a few cybercrime cases that came under the jurisdiction of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Delhi police,” he says. The investigation thriller releases on February 12.
“Much of the action revolves around the Kochi cyber cell. The narrative moves forward chiefly through the point of view of two BTech graduates (played by Balu Varghese and Lukman Lukku) who are called in by the cops in connection with a case that proves a tough nut to crack. We see how further investigation leads the police to duplicitous underground cyber networks that fleece people,” explains the Kottayam native.
