‘Peranbu’ director Ram pens dialogues for Tamil version of Mamangam
Mammootty’s hugely hyped period flick ‘Mamangam’ is getting ready for release next month. The film is currently in the final stages of post-production. Apart from Malayalam, the film is releasing in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages as well. Apparently, the Tamil version has its dialogues penned by director Ram, who has made films like ‘Kattradhu Tamizh’ and ‘Thanga Meengal’. He had also recently worked with Mammootty in the widely acclaimed, ‘Peranbu’.
Ram is known for his powerful dialogues and hence he is an ideal choice for writing dialogues in ancient Tamil language for ‘Mamangam’. Tamil dubbing for the film is currently progressing and Ram is also involved in it. Last day, he celebrated his birthday in Kochi along with Mammootty, director Padmakumar and other team members of ‘Mamangam’.
‘Mamangam’, as per the makers, is a historic film with almost 80% of it being inspired from real events. The film is based on the religious festival, Mamangam, that took place every 12 years in a place called Thirunavaya, on the banks of Bharathapuzha, for over 280 years.
Mammootty will be seen playing a ‘chaaver’ in the film. The cast also includes Unni Mukundan, Kaniha, Anu Sithara, Prachi Tehlan, Tarun Arora, Suresh Krishna, Manikuttan, Manikandan, Ineya, Siddique, Sudev Nair and Sudheer Sukumaran.
‘Mamangam’ is scheduled to hit screens on November 21. The makers are planning it as the biggest ever release in Kerala. Venu Kunnappilly of Kavya Films is producing the film.
