Lucifer is a political thriller: Prithviraj Sukumaran
Prithviraj is currently basking in the overwhelming audience response for his recently released ‘Koode’. After a series of duds, Koode seems to have got Prithviraj back to winning ways and his performance is also getting appreciation from all corners. Meanwhile, the actor is also getting ready to start shooting for his directorial debut, Lucifer starring Mohanlal in the lead. The movie is set to go on floors from this 16th.
Ever since the project was announced, there have been all sorts of rumors and loose talks about its genre. Prithviraj, in a recent interview to Film Companion, confirmed that Lucifer has politics as its backdrop. Murali Gopy, known for penning films like Left Right Left and Ee Adutha Kaalath, has scripted Lucifer. It has been a long while since Mohanlal has done a political film, so the excitement level is high among the fans.
Prithviraj had earlier hinted that Lucifer like all other Murali Gopy scripts, will be an intense film that demands strong performances from the actors. He is hoping to make Lucifer as a film which is worthy of Mohanlal as an actor and a star. Vivek Oberoi and Indrajith have already been confirmed in the movie’s cast. Tovino Thomas, Murali Gopy, Manju Warrier and ‘Queen’ fame Saniya Iyappan are also rumoured to be part of Lucifer but the makers are yet to give an official word.
In the technical crew, Sujith Vaassudev will be cranking the camera and Deepak Dev has been signed as the music director. Antony Perumbavoor is producing the movie under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. Kuttikanam, Vandiperiyar, Trivandrum and Mumbai have been finalized as the major locations.
