Drama will be on the lines of Pranchiyettan and The Saint: Ranjith
One of Mollywood’s all-time favorite actor-director combos, Mohanlal and Ranjith are coming together after a three-year-long gap. Their upcoming movie Drama is anything unlike their previous films. Drama is a fun entertainer without any superstar elements. After a long gap, Mohanlal is playing a fun role and so expectations are naturally on the higher side.
Ranjith believes that Drama is on the lines of his own film, Pranchiyettan And The Saint. Pranchi.. is widely rated as one of his finest works, for its subject and how cleverly humour was used in the movie. Similarly, Ranjith has scripted Drama as a feel-good movie with good dose of humour, sentiments and family drama. The movie’s teaser gives hints of a full-on fun entertainer.
Set entirely in the UK, the movie revolves around a middle-aged couple. Mohanlal plays the role of Rajasekharan aka Raju while Asha Sarath will be seen as his wife Rekha. The cast also has Arundhathi Nag, Niranj Maniyan Pilla Raju, Siddique, Dileesh Pothan, Shyamaprasad, Kaniha, Subi Suresh, Johny Antony, Renji Panicker, Shalin Zoya, Tini Tom and Baiju in supporting roles.
MK Nassar and Maha Subair are jointly producing Drama under the banners of Lilypad Motion Pictures and Varnachithra Good Line Productions. Release date has not yet been announced.
