The trailer of the Mohanlal starrer Odiyan is slated to be unveiled on Independence Day, August 15 this year. Movie buffs are anticipating its release and there is buzz that mega star Mammootty may be releasing it officially. However, there is no official word yet.
It may be mentioned that the mega star had released the Odiyan calendar much earlier and he may do the honours yet again. Both Mammootty and Mohanlal share a good rapport and have been friends for several decades. Therefore, it would be no surprise if Mammootty agrees to unveil the trailer.
The first teaser of the film was released in May this year and had the movie buffs waiting in anticipation to know more. While fans have been waiting to get a glimpse of what Odiyan is all about, the filmmakers once again managed to up the curiosity levels with the second teaser. This has raised expectation levels for the trailer.
Odiyan is one of the most anticipated films of the year. It will mark the directorial debut of ad filmmaker VA Shreekumar Menon in the Malayalam film industry. The film has Prakash Raj playing a pivotal role and interestingly he is sharing the screen space with Mohanlal after nearly two decades. The last time they worked together was in the Mani Ratnam directorial Iruvar.
Manju Warrier plays the female lead in this film and rest of the star cast includes Innocent, Siddique, Manoj Joshi, Nandhu, Narain, Kailash, Sreejaya Nair, Sana Althaf and Appani Sarath. The film is scripted by National Award winner K Hari Krishnan.
Odiyan, which is currently in the post-production mode, is all set for a massive release on October 11 this year. According to reports from trade sources, the Hindi dubbing and satellite rights of Odiyan have been sold for a whopping Rs. 3.25 crore, which is the highest for any Malayalam movie till date. The dubbing rights alone fetched its makers Rs. 2.35 crore, say sources.
