The Mohanlal starrer Odiyan is currently in the post-production mode with the shooting wrapped up a few weeks ago. The film, being a fantasy thriller, is based on the shape-shifting art that the Odiyan tribe in the Malabar region had been practicing for centuries, according to the folklore. Scripted by National Award winner K Hari Krishnan, the film is being directed by VA Shrikumar Menon, an accomplished ad filmmaker who will be making his directorial debut in the film industry.

The storyline of Odiyan does require oodles of VFX and this job has been entrusted to NY VFXWAALA headed by the Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn. Established in 2015, the VFX company has worked on several movies and had won the National Film Award for Best Special Effects for the Ajay Devgn starrer Shivaay. Some of the other hit movies for which the VFX has been handled by NY VFX WAALA are Singham Returns, Dilwale, Bajirao Mastani, Baahubali: The Conclusion; Tamil films Kaatru Veliyidai, Thaana Serntha Kootam, Mersal, etc.

Odiyan is one of the high budget films to be made in the Malayalam film industry. The film has Mohanlal appearing in the title role with Manju Warrier as the leading lady. Prakash Raj has been roped in to play a crucial role in the film with Innocent, Siddique, Manoj Joshi, Nandhu and Narain also included in the star cast.

The technical crew of the film includes Peter Hein, who has choreographed action scenes of the film. Harikrishnan has rendered the script for the movie. Sabu Cyril is in charge of production design while Shaji Kumar will be seen behind the camera of Odiyan and it has been shot using 3D technology.

The film’s shooting began last year and ended in April this year with the shooting happening in various locations across India. It will be produced and distributed by Aashirvad Cinemas under the banner Aashirvad Films. With the VFX and other post-production work happening right now, the release date of Odiyan is yet to be revealed officially.
