The last time Mohanlal posted an update on his upcoming film Odiyan, we saw glimpses of the Ganga river and Kasi, filled with devotees and sadhus. The video that spoke about his character Manikyan, left his fans yearning for more.
Now, the actor has posted another video, in which we get to see Thenkurissi, a quiet, pristine village in Kerala. This is from where Manikyan starts his journey to Kasi and finds himself returning to the same place at a certain point in his life.
"Do you hear the wind? It has memories of my past. So many memories...of events that made me smile and cry...events that made me desire for more and ones that made me numb. Although I have grown older, I now understand that Thenkurisssi is still young," Mohanlal says in the video.
Mohanlal shared the 2-minute video on his Facebook page on Thursday.
Directed by VA Shrikumar Menon, the film's third shooting schedule has commenced in Thenkurissi. In the film, Mohanlal appears in three different get-ups. The film's crew was in Kasi for more than a month from September.
Under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas, the film is being produced by Antony Perumbavoor. Apart from Mohanlal, the film also features prominent actor Manju Warrier in the lead role. Actors Prakash Raj and Sarath Kumar will also play important roles in the film.
Ever since the film's shooting commenced, director Shrikumar Menon and Mohanlal have been posting updates on the shooting of the film consistently. Although the exact date of release is not confirmed as of yet, the film is expected to hit the theatres in 2018.
What does Thenkurussi, the quiet Palakkad village, have in store for Manikyan?
