A sequel to the cult film August 1, released in 1988, this film has Mammootty reprising the role of Office Perumal in the script of SN Swami who also wrote the first part. The first part was inspired from the classic novel/film - The Day of The Jackal and by the visuals in the trailer, it seems like its almost the same story in this one too. A professional killer wants to kill the Chief Minister of the State at any cost and Mammootty's Perumal has to stop him at any cost. This was essentially the plot of August 1 and the trailer indicates that August 15 also has a very similar plot. Siddique's character looks like an upgraded successor to Captain Raju. While Sibi Malayil was the director of the first part, this time Shaji Kailas has taken over the directorial veins. Anyways, the trailer looks impressive and the movie is getting ready for February 11 release. Shaji Kailas desperately needs a big hit after huge flops with all the top line actors and the embarrassment called Drona 2010 which he made last year with Mammootty. And yes, Mammootty is looking great, I must say. In fact, even better than how he looked in August 1.
