Lal Jose’s next with Biju Menon and Nimisha titled as Nalpathiyonnu
As reported by us recently, Biju Menon’s next film will be directed by veteran Lal Jose. Last year’s Kerala State Award winner Nimisha Sajayan has been signed as the female lead. The movie titled as ‘Nalpathiyonnu’ is all set to start rolling from this Monday in Thalassery. Prageesh PG, a former journalist, is scripting the movie, which is reportedly set in the backdrop of the socio-politcal issues in Kannur.
This is the first time Biju Menon and Nimisha are coming together for a film, so it will be interesting to see them share screen space. Suresh Krishna and Indrans have also been cast in major roles. A few theatre artists and newcomers will also be seen essaying prominent roles in the movie. In the technical side, S Kumar will be cranking the camera and edits will be by Ranjan Abraham.
Biju Menon currently has two films gearing up for release. One is ‘Sathyam Paranja Vishwasikuvo’, directed by G Prajith of ‘Oru Vadakkan Selfie’ fame. The movie is scripted by National award winner Sajeev Pazhoor, who penned the widely acclaimed ‘Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum’ (TD). Another Biju Menon starrer that is getting ready is ‘Mera Naam Shaji’ directed by Nadirshah. The movie has him playing one of the leads along with Asif Ali and Baiju.
