‘Kammarasambhavam’ fame Rathish Ambat to direct Mammootty’s Marakkar?
Talks about Mammootty’s Marakkar have not yet settled down. The project was officially announced by August Cinema couple of years back but there have been no further developments. Santhosh Sivan was supposed to helm the film but he is currently busy with multiple commitments. The latest we hear is that the makers are in talks with director Rathish Ambat, who shot to fame with ‘Kammarasambhavam’, to take up the film. Buzz is that August Cinema will be associating with Joby George’s Goodwill Entertainment for the production.
Rathish Ambat, a popular ad-filmmaker, made his feature film debut last year with the Dileep starrer ‘Kammarasambhavam’. Though the movie failed to reap the desired results at the box office, it got critical accalim and found a following among the general audience after its DVD release. Rathish’s work was widely appreciated and he was deemed as a promising talent to watch out for.
Recently, Murali Gopy had revealed that his next will be with Rathish. It remains to be seen if the director takes up Marakkar first. Let’s wait for an official word from the makers side.
