Jayasurya in a new avatar as the wizard of Kadamattam; Kathanar launch teaser looks stunning!
We were among the first to report about Jayasurya starring in a film based on the life of Kadamattath Kathanar. Rojin Thomas, one of the directors of ‘Philips and the Monkey Pen’, is helming the film. It is scripted by R Ramanand and Vijay Babu of Friday Film House is producing it. The makers have shared a launch teaser online, which looks amazing. It gives the feel of a really ambitious project, probably the first of its kind in Malayalam.
Launching the teaser, Jayasurya has written in his Facebook page,
A small step for a big leap…
Here comes the Wizard of Kadamattam (Motion Poster)
Please bless us to complete this mega visual treat of Kerala’s one and only ‘Super Hero’ the Legendary Kathanar!
Kadamattath Kathanar is an 8th century priest from Kerala who is believed to have possessed supernatural powers. The project titled as ‘Kathanar The Wild Sorcerer’ is planned to be made in 3D format in two parts.
The technical crew comprises of DOP Neil D Cunha, music director Rahul Subramanian and CGI supervisor Vishnu Raj. Poetic VFX and Animations will be handling the CGI department. The makers are currently working on the pre-production and it is expected to take up to an year’s time. If things out turn out as per plans, it will be the most expensive film in Jayasurya’s career.
