Unni Mukundan sings for Mammootty’s Oru Kuttanadan Blog
Writer Sethu’s directorial debut Oru Kuttanadan Blog starring megastar Mammootty in the lead is gearing up for a grand Onam release next month. A few location stills of the movie have been released in social medias. From the stills and promos, the movie looks like a rural based fun entertainer that families seek during the festive season.
An interesting aspect of this film is that actor Unni Mukundan will be crooning a song in it. He had also assisted Sethu for a few days. Unni shares a brotherly relationship with Sethu ever since the Mallu Singh days. The actor got his big break with Mallu Singh, which was co-written by Sethu. He was also part of Sethu’s last scripted Achayans, directed by Kannan Thamarakkulam.
Informing his followers about lending his voice for a track in Oru Kuttanadan Blog, Unni wrote on his Facebook page,
Really glad and humbled to take on a very interesting role behind the camera in the much awaited project ‘Oru Kuttanadan Blog’, as a playback singer. It was really disappointing for me when I missed out on the incredible opportunity to associate my dear brother Sethu in this project because of my unavoidable work commitments ; but this one chance instantly made up for all the disappointments. I was fortunate enough to render my voice for this all full of life song from the movie , which is a totally different genre from what I have tried so far in my musical experiments. Immensely grateful that I could be a part of this project in the best possible way. All my love, wishes and prayers to both my favorite people , Mammokka and Sethu chettan on this project we are all keenly looking forward to. Can’t wait to see my name in that list of play back singers! It was indeed humbling to be sharing the space with such ace singers. I do hope that you all will love the track and I would like to take a moment to thank the entire team of ‘Oru Kuttanadan blog’, who made this possible for me.
Sethu himself has scripted Oru Kuttanadan Blog, the core plot of which is set in a village named Krishnapuram. Mammootty plays the role of Hari, a big-brother like figure, fondly called as Hari ettan in the locality. New-gen actors like Jacob Gregory, Shaheen Siddique, Vivek Gopan, Sanju Sivaram and Jude Anthany Joseph play his close acquaintances.
The story is narrated interestingly through various episodes of a blog. Young star Sunny Wayne is reportedly playing the role of a blogger in the movie. His portions were recently shot in Dubai. Anu Sithara, Raai Laxmi and Shamna Kasim play the three female leads. Nedumudi Venu, Siddique, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Vineeth Kumar, Lalu Alex, Thesni Khan, Nandan Unni and Sohan Seenulal are also part of the supporting cast.
The technical crew includes debutant composer Sreenath Sivasankaran, Bijibal (background score), cinematographer Pradeep Nair and editor Shameer Muhammed. The movie is being produced by Murali Dharan and Santha Murali under the banner of Anantha Vision. Reports suggest that the movie will hit screens on August 24, though an official confirmation is still awaited.
