Prithviraj releases the teaser of Biju Menon’s Padayottam!
Biju Menon’s Padayottam has been in the making for sometime now. The movie is finally gearing up to hit screens next month for Onam. Debutant Rafeek Ibrahim is directing this movie, which is touted to be a serious comedy. Official teaser of the movie was shared today by actor Prithviraj through his social media handle.
Biju Menon has done a lot of negative roles in his career but he hasn’t played a proper gangster role yet. The wait ends with Padayottam, as the movie has him playing Chenkal Raju, a pucca local gangster based in the Chenkal Choola region in Trivandrum. The actor will be seen sporting a rugged mass look in the movie.
Padayottam is scripted jointly by newcomers Arun AR and Ajai Rahul. According to the makers, the movie is a serious comedy on the lines of Delhi Belly and Jigarthanda. The movie promises to be a laugh riot. Dileesh Pothan, Saiju Kurup, Anu Sithara, Lijo Jose Pellissery, Sudhi Koppa and Harish Kanaran are part of the supporting cast.
Satheesh Kurup is the cinematographer and Prashanth Pillai is handling the music department. Sophia Paul is producing the movie under the banner of Weekend Blockbusters.
