Siju Wilson and debutante Kayadu Lohar in Pathonpathaam Noottandu; Here’s a new poster
Director Vinayan’s big-budget period film ‘Pathonpathaam Noottandu’ is currently on the floor. Lead actor Sijy Wilson joined the sets recently. He plays the role of Arattupuzha Velayudha Panicker, a brave Ezhava chieftain who lived in the 19th century. Debutante Kayadu Lohar plays the female lead. Last day, the makers released a new poster featuring the two lead actors. Both of them are seen riding horses and look like real warriors. Siju had trained hard for the film by developing a bulky physique besides training in horse riding and Kalaripayattu.
‘Pathonpathaam Noottandu’ tells the untold story of Arattupuzha Velayudha Panicker, who was the first martyr of the Kerala Renaissance movement. The leader stood for the marginalized community and fought against the caste system. He lead several struggles for women including the ‘Mookuthi Samaram’ – a protest led for the Ezhava women, who were denied the right to wear nose studs.
Gokulam Gopalan is producing this ambitiuous film.
