The much awaited first look of the Malayalam film Uyare starring Parvathy, Tovino Thomas and Asif Ali was released on Facebook on Wednesday. Interestingly, it was actor Manju Warrier who unveiled the first look poster of the movie - which is the story of an acid attack victim.
Writing about her relationship with the cast of Uyare, Manju dedicated the unveiling to the 3rd death anniversary of late Indian director Rajesh Pillai who mentored Manu Ashokan, the director of Uyare. Manju Warrier had also played the lead role in the film Vetta, which was Rajesh Pillai's last film.
"Three years ago on a February 27, we lost Rajesh Pillai, a precious artist. His last film, Vetta, had Manu Ashokan as the assistant director. Manu was like a brother to him. He had hoped to see Manu grow into an independent and successful director. With Uyare Manu is entering Malayalam cinema as an independent director. To commemorate him (Rajesh) today on the day of his death is something that is invaluable," Manju wrote on Facebook.
Uyare is written by the scriptwriter duo Bobby- Sanjay and produced by SCube Films along with Grihalakshmi Productions. The supporting cast comprises of big names such as Prathap Pothen, Sidhique, Anarkali Marikar and Samyuktha Menon.
Parvathy's most recent release was Anjali Menon's Koode which did well at the box-office. The actor is known for picking performance-oriented roles. Tovino Thomas has had a slew of releases and recently made his debut in the Tamil industry with Maari 2. Asif Ali, meanwhile, was last seen in Vijay Superum Pournamiyum, the Malayalam remake of the Telugu hit Pellichoopulu.
