Joju George and Nimisha Sajayan in Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s Chola?
Sanal Kumar Sasidharan is a much revered filmmaker in Malayalam industry. There is a very conspicuous pattern in the kind of movies that he has been doing. He steers clear of the usual commercial flicks and instead does meaningful movies that reflect the socio-political issues in the society we live in. All his three feature films – Oraalppokkam, Ozhivudivasathe Kali and S Durga have won widespread critical acclaim while also sweeping awards at the regional and international level.
Sanal has mostly worked with lesser known actors. But if latest reports are to be believed, his upcoming movie Chola will have Joju George and ‘Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum’ fame Nimisha Sajayan in the lead roles. An official announcement is yet to be made but if it turns out to be true, it will be interesting to see how the director utilizes these two talented actors.
Sanal meanwhile is working on the theatrical release of Unmadiyude Maranam, a movie which tells the story of a filmmaker. The movie discusses about the restrictions on creative freedom and other similar issues an artist is facing in today’s scenario.
