Baahubali art director Sabu Cyril roped in for Mohanlal’s two big budget movies
Baahuabli series is widely regarded as Indian cinema’s pride. The movie can be proudly presented on an international platform alongside some of the biggest epic historic dramas from around the world.
The series is nothing but a spectacular show of director SS Rajamouli’s unparalleled genius. His vision or imagination levels is unbelievable and fairy tale stuff. The director’s vision is brought in a celluloid format by production designer/art director Sabu Cyril and his team of technicians.
Sabu Cyril, the Malayali presence in Baahubali, is one of India’s most sought after art directors. A multiple national award winner, Sabu Cyril is known for the grandiose he brings on screen. Starting his career in Malayalam, Sabu has worked in some of India’s biggest movies like Enthiran, Hey Ram, Ra One, Krissh 3, Lingaa etc.
Sabu Cyril is now returning back to Malayalam film industry after a long gap. He has committed for two big budget movies starring Mohanlal- Odiyan and The Mahabharata.
Both the movies will be directed by popular ad filmmaker VA Shrikumar Menon. While Odiyan is said to be a fantasy period drama, Mahabarata is a mythological period drama based on MT Vasudevan Nair’s novel Randamoozham.
The Mahabarata is being planned to be made on a whopping Rs 1000 crores as the most expensive Indian movie ever. The visual spectacle in this movie will be bigger and monumental than Baahuabli, so it is only fitting that Sabu Cyril has been roped in to handle the movie’s production design.
