Director B Unnikrishnan is throwing surprise after surprise by roping in a stupendous team of artists and technicians for his upcoming movie with Mohanlal in the lead.

All the four actors are making their Mollywood debut through this movie.
Latest update about the movie is that Manju Warrier has been roped in to play the female lead in this movie. Now that makes it quite a huge star cast. She was last sewn with Mohanlal in Sathyan Anthikad’s Ennum Eppozhum in 2015. Srikanth. Siddique, Aju Varghese and Chemban Vinod Jose are also part of the cast.
Not just that, Peter Hein will be choreographing some of the action sequences in the movie. Last year, Peter Hein and Mohanlal worked together in the mega blockbuster movie Pulimurugan. The high octane action sequences was the major highlight of the movie.
B Unnikrishnan’s latest movie is an investigative thriller, so the action scenes in the movie will not be like those in Pulimurugan. Mohanlal is playing an ex-cop in the movie. He is currently undergoing an Ayurvedic treatment in Poomully to trim down for the movie.
Rockline Venkatesh, who has produced biggies like superstar Rajinikanth’s Lingaa and Salman Khan’s Bhajrangi Bhaijaan, is funding this movie.
The movie is being planned to be made on a budget of 30 crores. VFX will be of great significance in the movie and a foreign technician has been roped in to work on that. Acclaimed cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa known for his works in movies like Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya and Nanban will be handling the camera. Oppam fame 4 Musics will be composing for this investigative thriller.
