Odiyan censored with clean U; All set to storm screens on December 14
The highly anticipated Mohanlal starrer ‘Odiyan’ went to censors today. The CBFC has awarded the movie a clean U. As per reports, the movie currently has a duration of 2 hr 59 mins. The makers are planning to trim around 9 minutes to make the final product more tight. Meanwhile, the movie is being planned as the biggest ever release in Malayalam cinema history. Besides the usual overseas centres like Middle East, UK, US and Australia, ‘Odiyan’ will also be released in countries like France, Poland, Japan and New Zealand. It will be released in around 4000 screens worldwide.
‘Odiyan’ is arguably the most hyped Malayalam movie in recent years. The buzz is even bigger than ‘Pulimurugan’, that trade experts believe the movie has the potential to become the next 100 crore grosser from Mollywood. As of now, only ‘Pulimurugan’ and ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’ feature in the elite 100 crore club.
Directed by Shrikumar Menon and scripted by Harikrishnan, ‘Odiyan’ is a mass entertainer that is based on the life of odiyans. Along with Mohanlal, actors like Prakash Raj, Manju Warrier, Manoj Joshi and Naren play the other major roles. Mohanlal’s home production banner Aashirvad Cinemas is funding the movie. Kerala bookings for the movie will be starting in full swing from this weekend
