Maamankam next schedule to begin this month
Mammootty’s period flick Maamankam has been put on hold after completing a couple of schedules. Reportedly, the team had suffered a few property losses during the devastating floods that rocked Kerala. It forced a delay in shoot and Mammootty soon got busy with his other projects. Now the actor has allotted dates for the third schedule. The makers have planned to resume shoot by the end of this month. It is expected to extend for nearly a month.
Maamankam is directed by Sajeev Pillai, a former associate of Adoor Gopalakrishnan. The movie is based on the medieval fair, Maamankam, where brave warriors from across the country would come together to showcase their skills at combat. Mammootty plays a ‘Chaaver’ (warrior) in this movie, which revolves around the life of warriors who plot to defeat the Zamorin rulers.
Sajeev Pillai has scripted the movie after doing research works for nearly twelve years. This epic-scale project’s technical crew comprises of renowned cinematographer Ganesh Rajavelu a.k.a Jim Ganesh, action choreographer Kaecha Khamphakdee, editor Sreekar Prasad, music director M Jayachandran and VFX supervisor Kamala Kannan. Venu Kunnampilly of Kavya Films is producing this ambitious project.
