Mega star Mammootty had played many Achaayan role or Kottayam Christian characters with ease and with success as well. No one can forget his roles such as in films like Kottayam Kunjachan, Sangham etc. Even though his last two outings as in so called Achayan roles was not so successful like that of in films such as Nasrani and Priase The Lord. But as per news he is once again playing that character and this time pairing up with director johny antony again even though the project is not officially declared yet.
Earlier there was reports that they are coming together for an entertainer this year as Thiruttu Gramam but it seems that project is paved way for this one which will be penned down by Nishad Koya who wrote Ordinary and Madhura Naranga. And also Mammootty and Johny antony is joining together after the gap of 3 years and their last association was Thappana released in 2012. This flick was not yet titled and the decision on who will play the female lead and also about other artists in this flick will be taken very soon. The major portions of the flick will be canned at Idukki and Pala.
Director Johny Antony badly needs a super hit as his last few films were not at did good at box office and his last film titled Bhaiyya Bhaiyya was a disaster at box office even though he roped in hit pair Kuncjacko Boban and Biju Menon in it. Johny antony also faced great criticism from the film critics for making such worthless films which don’t even have no commercial or aesthetic value at all.
The films by him recently followed same pattern and that may be the reason for his downfall off late and he had to take up the responsibility for that and have to come back strongly with this upcoming flick and he hopes to deliver a super success with Mammootty like he did it in Thuruppu Gulan. He had earlier associated with Mammootty in films like Thuruppu Gulan which was a hit and Ee Pattanathil Bhootham and Thappana which was a disaster and flop respectively.
