Mamangam team release a special poster on the 10th anniversary of Pazhassi Raja!
It has been exactly 10 years since the release of ‘Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja’. The epic historical film directed by Hariharan and scripted by MT Vasudevan Nair had Mammootty in the lead. During the time of its release, it was the most expensive film in Malayalam and the hype was tremendous. The film emerged successful both critically and commercially. It also went on to win a total of eight awards at State level.
Today, on the 10th anniversary of the ‘Pazhassi Raja’, the makers of Mammootty’s upcoming biggie ‘Mamangam’ have released a special poster as a tribute to the classic film. Along with the poster, a note has also been shared on the film’s official page, which reads,
On the 10th anniversary of the evergreen classic Keralavarma Pazhassiraja, a humble tribute from Kavya Film Company to the actor who always gave the soul to epic characters Sri.Mammootty, the director whose detailing created classics Hariharan sir, the writer whose tales always moved Malayali hearts M.T sir, the greatest modern day producer of epics Gokulam Films and entire team of Pazhassiraja !!!
‘Mamangam’, directed by M Padmakumar, is a historic film with almost 80% of it being inspired from true events. Though there are comparisons with ‘Baahubali’, the makers have repeatedly stressed that ‘Mamangam’ is not a ‘Baahubali’ like film but a war film on the lines of his mentor Hariharan’s ‘Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha’ and ‘Pazhassi Raja’.
