Omar Lulu to direct a mass entertainer with Mammootty!
In the past, there have been speculations about Mammootty and Omar Lulu teaming up. It looks like the project is finally materializing. Omar hinted the same in a recent casual chat with one of his followers in Facebook. He also confirmed that it will be an out and out mass entertainer. Veteran Dennis Joseph will be making his comeback by scripting this film.
Omar Lulu’s earlier – ‘Happy Wedding’, ‘Chunkzz’, ‘Oru Adaar Love’ and ‘Dhamakka’ have all been youthful entertainers aimed mainly at the teenage audience. With Mammootty’s film, the director is attempting a major genre shift and it will be interesting to see how he adapts. Collaborating with a proven scenarist like Dennis Joseph will be helpful for Omar.
Dennis Joseph is one of the most celebrated Malayali script writers of the 80s and 90s. He is well known for penning some of Mammootty’s blockbuster films like ‘Nirakoottu’ ‘New Delhi’, ‘Kottayam Kunjachan’ and ‘Nair Saab’. Some of his other hit films include ‘Rajavinte Makan’, ‘Bhoomiyile Rajakkanmar’, ‘No.20 Madras Mail’ etc. He last scripted the Mohanlal starrer ‘Geethanjali’.
