Fahadh Faasil teams up with Akhil Sathyan for Pachuvum Athbuthavilakkum
Fahadh Faasil is teaming up with Sathyan Anthikad’s son Akhil Sathyan for a new film titled ‘Pachuvum Athbuthavilakkum’. Its title poster introducing the crew members has just been released online. The film had originally gone on floors in January, 2020 but shoot had to be stopped halfway due to the pandemic. The makers are now planning to resume shoot in April.
‘Pachuvum Athbuthavilakkum’ has Fahadh playing a Mumbai-based Malayali youth. According to director Akhil Sathyan, Fahadh’s is a fun character that offers enough scope for him to display his humour skills. The film is centred around his journey from Mumbai to Kerala and then to Goa. It is basically a story of a young girl and an older woman, and how Fahadh’s character connects them both.
The film has three female leads – Viji Venkatesh, Dhwanu Rajesh and Anjana Jayaprakash. Viji, a renowned author, is making her acting debut with this film. Dhwani Rajesh, a 13-year-old who had earlier starred in the Majid Majidi directorial ‘Beyond The Clouds’ will be seen essaying a crucial role. Anjana Jayaprakash, who had appeared in the Tamil-English web series ‘Queen’, is the other female lead.
On the technical front, the makers have got Sharan Velayudhan of ‘Ambili’ fame as the DOP and Justin Prabhakaran to handle the music department. Besides scripting and directing, Akhil Sathyan is also editing the film. It is produced by Sethu Mannarkad of Full Moon Cinema.
