Odiyan team in Athirappilly for song shoot!
The third and final schedule of Odiyan was progressing at Palakkad before the team moved to Athirappilly last day for a song shoot. Kala Master is choreographing the song sequence which apparently features Mohanlal and Manju Warrier. From the location stills and Mohanlal’s make-up, we presume that it is not a usual kind of a song.
Odiyan, according to the makers, is shaping up as a mass entertainer with a mix of action, romance and magical realism. National award winner Harikrishnan has scripted the movie, which is primarily about ‘odividya’, a kind of black magic. People who practice it are called ‘odiyans’.
Mohanlal plays odiyan Manikyan in the movie. The story is set in three different timelines starting from the pre-electricty days in the 1950s to 2000. The narrative follows Manikyan’s life from his childhood to his 60s. Prakash Raj plays the villain’s role of Ravunni and Manju Warrier character is named as Prabha.
In this ongoing schedule, the younger portions of these three lead characters are being shot. Narain, Innocent, Sana Althaf, Kailas and Siddique are also part of the movie’s supporting cast. Action choreographer Peter Hein, cinematographer Shaji Kumar, art director Prashanth Madhav, editor Sreekar Prasad, composers M Jayachandran, Sam CS and sound designer Resul Pookkutty form the movie’s technical crew.
Odiyan is funded by Mohanlal’s own production house, Aashirvad Cinemas.
