Nithya Menen is collaborating with director TK Rajeev Kumar for yet another Malayalam movie titled Kolambi. Earlier, the two had teamed up for Thalsamayam Oru Pennkutty which was a big hit.

On working in Kolambi, Nithya Menen had told in an interview to the Times of India, “I play an artist, who comes to Kochi to install one of her works at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale. It’s a beautiful story about an old couple and how they become a muse for her and her work. It also shows the relationships between the couple and the artist.” She added, “The whole film is made for an international audience and film festivals in mind, and that’s why it’s done with a lot of detailing and authenticity.” 

Kolambi has some of the best technicians on-board including the Oscar winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty and cinematographer Ravi Varman.

The film is fast progressing with the shooting underway. Meanwhile, Nithya is awaiting the release of Pranaa. Directed by VK Prakash, Pranaa is being produced by Suresh Raj, Praveen S Kumar and Anita Raj. The film has been scripted by Rajesh Jayaraman with P C Sreeram cranking the camera and the Oscar winning sound engineer Resul Pookkutty being the sound designer while Louis Banks scores the music. 

Director TK Rajeev Kumar stepped into the film industry as an assistant director with My Dear Kuttichathan, which was India’s first ever 3D film. He then went on to direct the Kamal Haasan starrer Chanakyan, Pavithram, Thacholi Varghese Chekavar, Kannezhuthi Pottum Thottu, Oru Naal Varum, etc.

He has won numerous awards in his long career including the National Award for the Best Environmental Film 2000 for Jalmarmaram, the Kerala State Film Awards, Filmfare Awards etc. With Nithya Menen and the director teaming up, fans can’t for Kolambi to hit the marquee!
