Three female leads in Mammootty’s Oru Kuttanadan Blog!!
We had reported about noted scriptwriter Sethu turning an independent filmmaker with a Mammootty starrer. The movie titled as Oru Kuttandan Blog is a village based fun entertainer. As we had already told, the movie will have three female leads. Initially Anu Sithara, Raai Laxmi and Deepti Sati were considered as the leads. But, Shamna Kasim has now replaced Deeti Sati in the movie.
Mammootty plays the role of Hari, a blogger in the movie. The plot is set in a fictional village named Krishnapuram where Shamna Kasim’s character Neena lands as a police officer. The movie is narrated through various episodes of a blog and Shamna’s portion is one such episode which has elements of humour.
Oru Kuttandan Blog is Raai Laxmi’s fifth film with Mammootty after sharing screen space with him previously in Parunth, Annan Thambi, Chattambinadu and Rajadhiraja. Anu Sithara, who is getting rave reviews for her performance in the recently released ‘Captain’, also has an important role in Oru Kuttandan Blog.
The movie’s supporting cast includes Nedumudi Venu, Siddique, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Jude Anthany Joseph, Sanju Sivaram and Adil Ibrahim form the cast. Another interesting aspect of the movie is that actor Unni Mukundan will be involved in it as an associate director. He has adjusted his acting assignments to assist director Sethu in this movie.
The movie will be shot extensively in Kuttanad and nearby areas. Cinematography will be handled by Pradeep Nair and ‘Idea Star Singer’ fame Sreenath is debuting as a composer with this movie. It is being produced by Muraleedharan and Santha Muraleedharan under the banner of Anantha Vision. The makers are planning to start shooting by the first week of March in Alappuzha.
