The first look motion poster of superstar Mohanlal’s upcoming film Odiyan was unveiled on Monday and it is nothing like you have seen before. The poster shows Mohanlal in a young avatar, with a trendy hairdo and an enigmatic smile.
In the film, Mohanlal plays the role called Odiyan Manikkan, the last surviving member of a tribal community in Kerala. Odiyan was a tribal community of Palakkad-Malabar region, which has now become extinct. The members of the Odiyan community made a living by scaring people in the dark for others. Keeping with the spirit of the film’s theme, Mohanlal had made a video earlier announcing the release of first look poster on his Facebook page.
The movie will be directed by debutante VA Shrikumar Menon, who will also direct Mohanlal in Rs 1000 crore magnum opus, “The Mahabharata”. National Award winning scriptwriter Harikrishnan has written the script. ‘Baahubali’ fame Sabu Cyril is on board as production designer.
According to reports, Odiyan is expected to go on floors in August. Manju Warrier plays the female lead, while Prakash Raj will also be seen in an important role. The big-ticket film is produced by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. National Award winning scriptwriter Harikrishnan has penned the script for the film.
