Confirmed: National award winner Sajeev Pazhoor to script Biju Menon’s next
Biju Menon’s last few releases like Lakshyam, Rosapoo and Sherlock Toms failed to create an impact at the box office. His latest outing, Orayiram Kinakkal opened to positive reviews from the critics but is receiving lukewarm response in theatres. But the actor still has some exciting projects in the pipeline. He has signed for a new movie with director G Prajith of ‘Oru Vadakkan Selfie’ fame.
Sajeev Pazhoor, who penned the widely acclaimed Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum (TD), is scripting this upcoming movie. While Sajeev won the National Film Award for best screenplay writer, TD was adjudged the best Malayalam movie of the year. Sajeev, a former journalist, is also scripting a movie for Dileep titled ‘Keshu Ee Veedinte Nadhan’, which will be directed by Nadirshah.
Expectations will be on the higher side for Sajeev’s upcoming movie with Biju Menon. Our sources within the industry inform that it will be a gripping realistic film with good scope for performance. More details regarding the cast and crew members is expected to be made official soon.
Biju Menon meanwhile is awaiting the release of Padayottam, directed by debutant Rafeek Ibrahim. The movie has Biju Menon in a never-before-seen mass avatar as Chenkal Raju, a Trivandrum based local gangster. The movie, according to the makers, is a serious comedy on the lines of Delhi Belly and Jigarthanda. Biju Menon has also committed for a film with director Lal Jose, which is expected to start rolling this year itself.
