Confirmed: Syam Pushkaran’s next is with Dileesh Pothan
Syam Pushkaran is one of those writers who triggered a new wave in Malayalam cinema. His realistic style of writing and ability to dwell deep into the lives of commoners makes him a writer like no other in the industry currently. ‘Maheshinte Prathikaram’, the first film he wrote independently, bagged him a National award. He followed that up with ‘Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum’, another National award winning film in which co-wrote the dialogues and was also the creative director. He then teamed up with his frequent collaborator Dileesh Nair for a love story, ‘Mayaanadhi’, which was also well received. ‘Kumbalangi Nights’, his latest film, has also opened to extremely positive reviews.
Cinephiles are already waiting to hear about Syam’s next. In a recent interview, he revealed that he would be teaming up with director Dileesh Pothan shortly. Script works are progressing and it’s still early days to reveal about the details. Expectations will be huge since the duo’s earlier films together were widely acclaimed.
Syam and Dileesh Pothan share a great rapport and that reflects on their works as well. They had also recently started a production house named ‘Working Class Hero’. Their maiden venture was ‘Kumbalangi Nights’, which they produced jointly with Fahadh Faasil’s banner.
