Manju Warrier starrer 9MM scripted by Dhyan Sreenivasan shapes up as an action-thriller!
As reported by us earlier, Dhyan Sreenivasan is scripting Manju Warrier’s 50th film titled ‘9 MM’. Debutant Dhinil Babu is directing the film and Fantastic Films, owned by Aju Varghese and Vishak Subramaniam, is producing it. Along with Manju, the cast also includes Dhyan, Sunny Wayne and Dileesh Pothan.
Dhyan Sreenivasan has previously scripted films like ‘Goodalochana’ and ‘Love Action Drama’. Both the films were comedy entertainers. 9MM, however, is an action thriller with plenty of action sequences. Yannik Ben, who has worked in various Bollywood and Hollywood films, has been roped in as the action director.
According to Dhyan, it is a real-life incident based film that occurred in Chennai. Manju Warrier agreed to be part of the project after being impressed by Dhyan’s script. ‘9 MM’ has its technical crew mostly from outside Malayalam industry. Vetri, who has cranked camera for Thala Ajith’s films like Viswasam’, ‘Vedhalam’ and ‘Vivegam’, is making his Malayalam debut with this film. Sam CS of ‘Vikram Vedha’ fame is the music director.
The makers are planning to start shooting next year once the pandemic situation gets better.
