Premam fame Anend C Chandran to wield the camera for Bilal
‘Bilal’, the sequel to Mammootty’s cult gangster film ‘Big B’, was about to go on floors when the lockdown was announced. The team is hoping to begin shooting as soon as the restrictions are lifted. Amal Neerad, who made his directorial debut with ‘Big B’, is helming the second part as well. One of the best things about all Amal Neerad films is the quality of the visuals. He mostly collaborates with talented young DOPs and the fact that he is a cinematographer himself also helps a great deal.
In ‘Bilal’, cinematography will be done by Anend C Chandran. The four-film old youngster is best known for his work in ‘Premam’. ‘Big B’ is still regarded as one of the most stylish gangster films ever made in Malayalam and Sameer Thahir’s work in it was widely appreciated. After 13 years, Anend has been entrusted with a big challenge of recreating the same magic.
On the technical side of ‘Bilal’, only music director Gopi Sunder has been retained from ‘Big B’. Actors Bala, Manoj K Jayan, Mamta Mohandas and Lena are expected to be reprising their roles.
