Mammootty’s Streetlights gearing up for release!
Cinematographer Shamdat Sainudeen’s directorial debut Streetlights starring Mammootty is gearing up to hit screens. It is a crime thriller in which Mammootty plays the role of an investigative officer. The movie was shot as a bilingual in Tamil and Malayalam. If reports are to be believed, it is also being dubbed in Telugu. All three versions are expected to hit screens simultaneously.
Streetlights is scripted by newcomer Fawaz Muhammed. Since the movie was shot separately in two languages, it has different set of actors for each version. The Malayalam version stars Joy Mathew, Dharmajan Bolgatty, Neena Kurup, Lijomol Jose, Sohan Seenulal, Indrans, Soubin Shahir, Sudhi Koppa and Harish Kanaran among others.
Veteran actor Pandiarajan, his son Prithvi Rajan, Manobala, Black Pandi, Stunt Silva, Motta Rajendran and some other noted supporting actors feature in the Tamil version. The movie doesn’t have a heroine as such, as it is a tale of many characters.
Debutant Adarsh Abraham has composed the songs and Iyobinte Pusthakam fame Yakzan Pereira and Neha Nair are handling the background score. Director Shamdat’s brother Sadat Sainudeen has cranked the camera.
Mammootty himself is producing the film under his banner Playhouse Pictures. He decided to produce the movie after being impressed by the narrative. The makers have maintained high secrecy about this film which has naturally raised the audience’s curiosity. Reports suggest January 26 as the release date but an official announcement has not yet been made.
