Mammootty-Sethu movie titled as Kozhi Thankachan !
We had earlier reported that popular script writer Sethu will be turning a director this year through a project with Megastar Mammootty in the lead. As per the latest reports, the movie titled as Kozhi Thankachan.
Touted as a clean entertainer, the movie will deal with a serious subject told in a humorous approach. Mammootty will be playing an ordinary villager. The story will be based in a rural backdrop with Kuttanad as the main location. The script written by Sethu has now been completed and the movie is expected to go on floors by May this year. Nyla Usha and Vedhika are playing the female leads in this movie. The former has earlier worked with Mammootty in two movies – Fireman and Kunjananthante Kada.
We had also rpeorted that actor Unni Mukundan will be assisting Sethu in direction for this movie. Now we hear that he will be a prominent character as well. The director in an interview has said that Unni Mukundan is more like a brother to him. The two apparently became very close to each other after they worked together for the first time in Mallu Singh.
Kozhi Thankachan will be produced by Muraleedharan and Santha Muraleedharan under the banner Anantha Vision.
Mammootty is currently shooting for Puthan Panam directed by ace filmmaker Ranjith. He has also comitted for movies with Shyam Dhar, Ajai Vasudev, Shafi and Vysakh.
Meanwhile, the megastar is awaiting the release of his most anticipated movie in recent times- The Great Father directed by debutant Haneef Adeni. National award winning filmmaker Ram’s bilingual Peranbu is next on the line to hit the screens.
