Adam Joan hit the silver screens for Onam, and has been doing well at the theatres. The film, which has Prithiviraj, Mishti and Bhavana play the lead roles, was shot extensively in Scotland as the story demanded it.

Also, it required a lot of aerial shots and it was Prithviraj who made it possible by roping in the services of the still photographer Mahadevan Thampi to control the helicam. Revealing this, Mahadevan told the Times of India, “I had done two to three shots in the song sequence for the film in Kerala. Prithvi and the film's director Jinu Abraham were impressed with my work and that's when they decided it was better if I handle the drone in the Scotland schedule too rather than hire someone from there.”

Stating that he was handling his own equipment to shoot until it started to show errors, Mahadevan revealed that it was Prithviraj who discussed with the film’s producer to get a drone instead of hiring one as it was more cost-effective.

On this development, Mahadevan said, “I shot for 30 days with my equipment after which it started showing errors. That's when Prithvi told the producer that I am doing my job well and asked him to get me the latest drone that cost about Rs 4 lakh. Prithviraj assured them that it would still cost less than hiring a drone operator.”

Adam Joan is an action thriller that has been directed by Jinu Abraham and produced by Jose Simon Brijeesh Mohammed and B cinemas along with Renji Panicker Entertainment. Music for the film has been composed by Deepak Dev with Jithu Damodar wielding the camera and Ranjan Abraham editing it. The film was released on September 1st as an Onam treat for the movie buffs.
