Ithu Thaanda Police (English:This is Police, previously known as Driver on Duty) is a 2016 Malayalam film directed by debutant director Manoj Palodan. It stars Asif Ali in the lead role alongside Abhirami, Janani Iyer, Sajitha Madathil and Sruthi Lakshmi. The story revolves around the life of a lone male police officer as the driver of eleven female officers,[1] inspired by Asia's first women's police station, inaugurated in 1973 in Kozhikode.[2] The film's shoot started on 7 July 2014,[1] in Thodupuzha.[3]



Asif Ali was signed to play the lead role, police jeep driver Ramakrishnan, with the actor saying that he was living the role since he was the only male actor among an all-woman cast.[4] Ramya Krishnan was supposed to play the role of the sub-inspector Arundhati Varma, but she had to opt out due to date issued and was replaced by Abhirami.
