Director Gireesh Damodar and writer-producer Joy Mathew are all set to team up again after the success of Uncle. Reports are that the duo are planning a film which will revolve around a middle class family that will also deal with a social issue. Sources in the know say that the scripting is being done and there would be an official word on the project very soon.
Uncle, which was released on April 27th, was a thriller that starred Mammootty in the lead role. The film had Karthika Muraleedharan playing the female lead. The supporting cast of this flick included Joy Mathew, Muthumani, Suresh Krishna. K.P.A.C. Lalitha and Ganapathi. Bijibal had composed music for this flick while Alagappan N. cranked the camera. Uncle was produced by Joy Mathew and Sajai Sebastian under the banner SJ Films in association with ABRA Movies.
Actor Joy Mathew had also written the script for Uncle and this brought on some early expectations since his first film Shutter was well received by the audience back in 2012.
It may be mentioned here that Gireesh Damodar made his directorial debut with Uncle and is working on his second project right now. It remains to be seen if they would rope in Mammootty to retain the core Uncle team. For this, we need to wait for an official word from the team.
In the meantime, Mammootty has a slew of films needing his attention. The Malayalam movies in different stages of production are Peranbu (premiered), Madura Raja and Mamankkam, while his Telugu flick, Yathra, a biopic on the late chief minister of Andhra Pradesh YS Rajasekar Reddy is slated for release later this year. Oru Kuttanadan Blog with Mammootty in the lead, playing a big brother-like role to a bunch of young men, is running in the theatres since Friday.
