The final schedule of Mohanlal’s highly anticipated movie, Odiyan is progressing at a brisk pace in Palakkad. Shrikumar Menon is directing this movie as a mass entertainer with a blend of fantasy and magical realism. A huge crew of around hundred members including the artists and technicians are sweating it out in Palakkad, the movie’s major location. Art department headed by Prashanth Madhav have erected a fictional village Thenkurissi where the team is currently shooting.
This is what keeps me going, the energy and support of the entire cast and crew of Odiyan no matter how difficult the situation is. And I would proudly call this my family, my Odiyan family! #Odiyan #MakingVideo #OdiyanRising
