Fahadh Faasil, Venu and KU Mohanan: Massive expectations on Carbon!
Fahadh Faasil’s upcoming movie Carbon is a very interesting film in the making. It is cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Venu’s third directorial venture after the widely acclaimed Daya (1998) and Munnariyippu (2013). He has assembled a stellar technical crew for Carbon, which he has also scripted.
KU Mohanan, the cinematographer of Hindi movies like Don, Raees, Talaash etc is making his Malayalam debut with Carbon. Multiple national award winning director-composer Vishal Bhardwaj is handling the music department. This is his second Malayalam film after working previously in Venu’s Daya. Editing is being done by Venu’s wife Beena Paul, who is also a National award winner. The very fact that the director has brought on board such big names itself heightens the expectations about the film.
Fahadh Faasil and Mamta Mohandas are playing the lead roles in the movie and this is their first outing together and it will be interesting to watch their chemistry onscreen. Both the actors are known for their amazing ability to get into the skin of the character, so it certainly will be a treat to watch the actors trying to outperform each other.
Carbon’s supporting cast has a balance of veteran and younger generation of talented actors. It includes Nedumudi Venu, Vijayaraghavan, Ashokan, Lena, Dileesh Pothan, Soubin Shahir, Sharafudheen, Manikandan Achari, Kochu Preman and Guppy fame Master Chetan Lal among others.
Carbon is being produced jointly by Sibi Thottapuram and Navis Xaviour under the banner of Poetry Film House. An official announcement regarding the release date is expected to be made very soon.
