This time Suraj is playing the lead role yet another movie which tells the tale of a young man who fears fire and the traditional rituals like Theyyam. Titled 'Pedithondan', the movie directed by Pradeep Chokli is set against the backdrops of rural locales of Malabar.
Rajeev (Suraj Venjaramoodu) is a young man who lives in a village which is known as the land of Theyyam. He is loved and cared by the villagers for his innocence and sincere love towards others.
