Unni Mukundan as antagonist Marco Jr in Mikhael
The highly anticipated Nivin Pauly starter Mikhael is gearing up to hit screens in January. Haneef Adeni of ‘The Great Father’ fame is directing the movie, which is touted to be a family oriented thriller. While Nivin plays the lead role of a doctor, Unni Mukundan will be seen as the antagonist. His character is named Marco Jr and it is said to be a very powerful part. The makers have been tight-lipped about the nature of his role, which has naturally raised the curiosity. Unni’s character introduction poster will be released on December 21.
‘Mikhael’ is eagerly awaited as Haneef Adeni’s earlier two works, ‘The Great Father’ and ‘Abrahaminte Santhathikal’ (scriptwriter), were hugely successful at the box office. The director is noted for his stylish filmmaking and from the promos ‘Mikhael’ also promises to be on similar lines. Manjima Mohan, JD Chakravarthy, Siddique, Renji Panicker, Ashokan, Shanthi Krishna, Kalabhavan Shajon and KPAC Lalitha are part of movie’s supporting cast.
Anto Joseph is producing ‘Mikhael’ under his banner Anto Joseph Film Company.
