I would love to do a mass-action film: Dileesh Pothan
Dileesh Pothan is one of the most revered filmmakers of this generation. Though he is just two films old, he enjoys a great fan following among the new age cinephiles. The fact that both his films went on to win awards at the National level also means that his works are eagerly awaited by many. Though both his films – ‘Maheshinte Prathikaram’ and ‘Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum’ dealt with totally different themes, one thing that’s common is the realistic treatment. In a way, it can be said that it was Dileesh Pothan who triggered the so-called ‘realistic wave’.
However, the director doesn’t believe in confining himself to one particular genre or style of filmmaking. In a recent interview, when asked about what genre he would love to do next, he said that he doesn’t work after zeroing in on any particular genre. According to him, he is just another storyteller who loves to tell stories regardless of its genre. He even added that he would love to do a mass-action flick.
It has been three years since Dileesh Pothan’s last film ‘Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum’ released. In the interview, he revealed that script works for his new film is progressing. Before that, ‘Thankam’, his second feature film production would start rolling. He is funding the film along with Syam Pushkaran and Fahadh Faasil. Dileesh Pothan is also playing one of the leads in the film along with Fahadh and Joju George.
