Ever since it was announced that Bejoy Nambiar, noted for his films like Shaitan, David, Wazir etc, is doing a bilingual with Dulquer Salmaan, expectations were soaring high. The team released the first look poster recently on the occasion of Dulquer’s birthday. A 33 second teaser video was also released which gave a glimpse of something spectacular in store for the audience.
There have been a lot of speculations about Solo being an anthology and Dulquer doing multiple roles. Director Bejoy Nambiar in a recent interview confirmed the same and opened up more about the movie. Solo is a multi genre film that revolves around the four elements – earth, wind, fire and water.
Dulquer is playing four different characters which are somehow connected to the four elements. Bejoy Nambiar, who has also scripted the film, has woven these elements into four stories with love and revenge as the premise. It is a mix-genre attempt and the movie has an unique treatment.
Since Solo is made as a bilingual, the movie has a plethora of actors from industries across the country. Bollywood actor Dino Morea, Ann Augustine, Arti Venkatesh, Kabali fame Sai Dhansika, Deepti Sati, Marathi actress Sai Tamhankar, Sruthi Hariharan, Manoj K Jayan, Prakash Belawadi, Bengali filmmaker Quashiq Mukherjee, Sathish, Soubin Shahir, John Vijay and many others are part of the cast.
Music for the movie is composed by 11 different composers which includes several leading bands as well. Girish Gangadharan, Sejal Shah and Madhu Neelakandan have cranked the camera for the movie.
Abraham Mathew has produced the Malayalam version under the banner of Abaam Movies. Tamil version is jointly funded by Anil Jain and Bejoy Nambiar. The movie is slated to hit screens in September this year.
