Directed by Mathews Thomas, the film is bankrolled by Tomichan Mulakuppadam under the banner Mulakuppadam Films. The technical crew of this action entertainer includes Harshavardhan Rameshwar for music, Shaji Kumar for cinematography and Noufal Abdullah for editing. Reports are that Joju George and Mukesh will also play important roles in Ottakomban.

SG 250 began production in December 2019 but had to be halted due to the COVID-19 lockdown in March. However, this film’s progress was further halted when a plagiarism case filed by Jinu Abraham. The Judge hearing the matter ordered the makers of tSG 250 to stop all work pertaining to the film unless major changes are made to the script. It may be noted here that the Prithviraj starrer Kaduva is based on the main character Kaduvakunnel Kuruvachan and the court ordered the makers of SG 250 to refrain from using it. With the same team retained for SG 250 and titled Ottakomban, there is a buzz that it could be a completely different story.

While the first look of Ottakomban is out, it may be recalled that the shooting of the Suresh Gopi starrer Kaaval resumed recently. It was confirmed by the film’s director Nithin Renji Panicker that the shooting is in progress at Kollengode in Palakad, also posted some pics of the lead star Suresh Gopi. 

Reports are that Kaaval is touted to be a family drama that will revolve on two generations of a family. Earlier, there were reports of this film being a sequel to Lelam 2 but that speculation has been put to rest with the director clarifying that it is a completely new story and not associated with Lelam.

Joby George is bankrolling Kaaval under his banner Goodwill Entertainments. The film has an impressive crew including National award winning cinematographer Nikhil S Praveen, Mansoor Muthootti for editing, and Ranjin Raj as music composer. Zaya David, Muthumani, Sujith Sankar, Alencier, and Kannan Rajan P Dev have been roped in to form the star cast of this entertainer. The first look poster of Kaaval, showing a gun tucked in a dhoti, has upped the curiosity levels of the film buffs already.

Suresh Gopi’s last film to hit the marquee was Varane Aavashyamund, released earlier this year. Veteran filmmaker Sathyan Anthikad’s son Anoop Sathyan made his directorial debut with Varane Aavashyamund, which had hit the silver screens to positive reviews. The film had Suresh Gopi, Urvashi and Shobana in important roles. Dulquer Salmaan and Kalyani Priyadarshan played key roles in it with ace cinematographer and director Santosh Sivan’s son Sarvajit making his acting debut.  The film was produced by Dulquer Salmaan under his banner Wayfarer Films.
