Directed by Aashiq Abu, Mayaanadhi is getting all the attention it deserves. It is not just the movie buffs who are raving about it but even film personalities are praising the director for the effort.
The latest to join this bandwagon happens to be the National Award winning director Priyadarshan.
The director had released a video in which it is clearly evident how much he liked Mayaanadhi. Priyadarshan had said that it was more like a poem rather than a movie.
Directed by Aashiq Abu, the film stars Tovino Thomas and Aishwarya Lekshmi in the lead roles. Apart from wielding the megaphone for Mayaanadhi, Aashiq Abu had also co-produced it along with Santhosh T Kuruvilla under the banner Dream Mill Cinemas and Entertainments and Moonshot Entertainment.
The film has been written by Syam Pushkaran and Dileesh Nair jointly. Rex Vijayan had composed music for this flick while Jayesh Mohan wielded the camera and Saju Sreedharan edited it.
Mayaanadhi is about the love between a criminal on the run and an aspiring actor. Harish Uthaman, Ilavarasu, Leona Loshoy, Aparna Balamurali, Soubon Shahir, Basil Joseph and others are part of the star cast.
Aashiq Abu made his debut with Daddy Cool in 2009 and has directed hit movies like Salt N Pepper, 22 Female Kottayam, a segment in Anchu Sundarikal, Gangster and Rani Padmini. Apart from producing and directing movies, he has also acted in a few films including Annayum Rasoolum and Paravaa.
