It has already been well publicized that Mohanlal will be appearing in various get-ups in Odiyan. The star had worked on his physique and had reduced around 15 kgs of weight to look young for a particular get-up in the film. And now we hear that his co-star in the film, Prakash Raj will also be seen in multiple get-ups.
Twenty years after the Tamil political drama Iruvar hit the screens, the film's lead actors Mohanlal and Prakash Raj are teaming up again. The director of the film, VA Shrikumar Menon has confirmed this.
On Manju Warrierâ€™s role in Odiyan, director VA Shrikumar Menon is reported to have told to the Times of India that it will be a powerful role played by any woman artiste in the Malayalam film industry.
He went on to add, â€śItâ€™s definitely one of the finest roles she has played. She has had a stellar career, but the role that stands out is that in Aaram Thampuram, because she was pitted against Mohanlal. In her comeback movies, apart from Ennum Eppozhum, most of her roles were solo heroine movies. I believe actors excel in their roles when they share screen space with other brilliant performers. In Odiyan, she is pitted against two of India's finest actors - Mohanlal and Prakash Raj.â€ť
The makers have also roped in Peter Hein for choreographing the action scenes in the movie. Sabu Cyril will be the production designer for Odiyan, which is scripted by National Award winner Harikrishnan. The film is been shot in Palakkad, Coimbatore, Pollachi, Hyderabad, and Varanasi.
Produced by Anthony Perumbavoor under his banner Aashirvad Cinemas, the film is made on a huge budget and it will be distributed by Maxlab Cinemas and Entertainments. The star cast also includes Siddique, Innocent, Narain, Kailash, Sana Althaf, Appani Sarath and Nandhu.
M Jeyachandran has composed the soundtrack and CS Sam is scoring the BGM for this flick. Shaji Kumar is wielding the camera for this venture with Johnkutty editing it.
