Odiyan scripted by Harikrishnan is based on the lives of odiyans, whose stories are popular in Kerala’s folklore. Odiyans are people who practice odividya, which is a kind of black magic. The connection between animals and odiyans are very popular in folklore. According to director VA Shrikumar Menon, the movie will be a mass entertainer with elements of fantasy and magical realism.
The movie has Mohanlal as Manikyan, who is an expert in odividya. The narrative follows his life from his childhood to his 60s. Since the narrative is set in different timelines, the actor will be seen in multiple looks in the movie, which includes a clean shaven avatar. For playing the younger part, the actor had put in a lot of physical efforts and reduced around 18 kilos of body weight.
