Well-known Malayalam filmmaker Jayaraj is busy trying to release his Veeram. Touted to be the most expensive film to be ever made in the history of Malayalam cinema, Veeram will be distributed by Joseâ€™s LJ Films.
According to sources, the film may be out in theatres on February 24, 2017. The filmmakers initially intended to have it released in December and then in January but various issues including the theatre strike did not work in their favour.
Featuring Kunal Kapoor, the film has been made simultaneously in Hindi and English as well. What has raked up the expectation levels for this flick is that it has joined the Oscar race, as a song from the album has been shortlisted under the Best Original Score category.
Based on William Shakespeare's Macbeth, the film has music by Jeff Rona. Veeram, which belongs to Jayarajâ€™s Navarasa franchise, is the fifth film in the series.
