A couple of months ago we reported that the shooting of the Mammootty starrer Pathinettam Padi has been wrapped up and the film has gone into post-production stage. Now we have the news that the film is scheduled for release on July 5th. The team is racing against time to promote it.

According to reports, Mammootty’s character in the film is named John Abraham Palackal, a Stanford professor, and the crux of the story falls on him. His look in the film was revealed a few months ago and it went viral among his fans.

Saniya Iyappan, Ahaana Krishna, Biju Sopanam and Maala Parvathy will be seen in supporting roles in this flick which also has Prithviraj Sukumaran in a cameo. The film will also have cameos by two other stars – Tovino Thomas and Arya. Details about their role in Pathinettam Padi have not been revealed yet.

An interesting feature of this film is that fourteen new faces from the fourteen districts of Kerala will be making their acting debut with Pathinettam Padi. The film will also mark the debut of actor and writer Shankar Ramakrishnan as a feature film director. He has earlier directed the segment Island Express in the anthology film Kerala Café. Shankar has also written several noticeable scripts including that of Urumi and Natholi Oru Cheriya Meenalla. Shankar, who has assisted director Ranjith in several films, has also turned an occasional actor in movies like Spirit.

Pathinettam Padi is bankrolled by August Cinemas. The film’s technical crew mainly comprises debutants with Sudeep Elamon cranking the camera, KH Kaashif wielding the music baton and Bhuvan Sreenivas taking care of its editing.

With the film scheduled for release in a few days, movie buffs are waiting eagerly to catch their favorite stars on the silver screen.
