Mohanlal’s Villain is arguably the most awaited Malayalam movie of the year. B Unnikrishnan is directing this crime thriller. Rockline Films is making their entry to Mollywood by funding this big budget movie. It has a huge star cast which includes popular actors from other south Indian languages.
Apart from Mohanlal, the movie also stars noted actors like Manju Warrier, Vishal, Hansika Motwani Srikanth and Raashi Khanna. All these factors have clearly heightened the expectation levels of the audience.
Director B Unnikrishnan through his Facebook handle has announced that the movie has been censored with a clean U certificate. The movie is now set for a grand release on October 27. Rockline Entertainments are distributing the film through Maxlab. In Kerala alone, they are eyeing to release it in a whopping 300+ centres. So, a massive opening is definitely on cards.
Villain is a crime thriller in which Mohanlal plays the role of a police officer. Director B Unnikrishnan had recently informed that it will not be a loud mass masala film. It is more of an emotional thriller that follows a very serious mood.
Vishal plays a doctor in the film and he is said to be playing a grey shaded role. Manju Warrier plays Mohanlal’s wife in the movie. Siddique, Renji Panicker, Aju Varghese and Chemban Vinod Jose are also part of the supporting cast.
