Director Nirmal Sahadev is excited over the release of his next film, Ranam. The neo noir action thriller is all set to hit the silver screens soon and the filmmaker took to social media to narrate how this film wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment and support of its lead actor, Prithviraj Sukumaran.
The director wrote: “People keep telling us it is completely new and fresh, and asking us how we attempted something of that nature? To everyone, the answer is having a supremely creative and supportive team, and a star like Prithviraj Sukumaran on your side offering the space to do exactly what is right for the film. As a writer/director, I have felt fortunate to have this sort of support from day one, being there as actor, friend and mentor. As we continue with post production, the entire team feels the same vibe. Prithviraj has been an early supporter of Jakes Bejoy and it was always Jakes’ dream to compose for a Prithviraj film. Ranam is what it is today because of Prithvi’s undeterring commitment to the film and this track is the result of that encouragement (sic).”
On the film’s release, he wrote, “We were able to explore our creative talents without any barriers! While we finish post and move towards a release date, we are more and more grateful for the responses and support we are getting. Forever thankful!”
Ranam, which was earlier titled Detroit Crossing, stars Isha Talwar as the leading lady. The film also has Rahman, Ashwin Kumar and Nandhu in the star cast playing supporting roles.
The first song, named Ranam Title Track, was released recently and it has already made to the top 10 trending videos on YouTube. The lyrics of the song are in English, Tamil and Malayalam. Composed by Jakes Bejoy and sung by Ajaey Shravan and Neha S Nair, the track boasts an international appeal fusing effervescent techno beats with rap.
Bankrolled by Anand Payannur and Rani & Lawson Biju under the banners Yes Cinema Production and Lawson Entertainment, Ranam is currently is in the post-production mode. Its release date will be announced soon.
