Mammootty and Parvathy to team up for Puzhu!
On the special occasion of International Women’s Day, it has been announced that Mammootty and Parvathy Thiruvothu would be teaming up for a new film titled ‘Puzhu’. Debutante Ratheena will be directing the film and it is produced by S George. Dulquer Salmaan’s Wayfarer Films will be releasing the film in theatres.
‘Puzhu’ has its story written by ‘Unda’ fame Harshad. He has penned the screenplay along with Suhas and Sharfu, who made their debut with ‘Varathan’ and later co-wrote the multi-starrer ‘Virus’ with Muhsin Parari. The makers have put together a strong technical crew.
Theni Eswar, who has cranked the camera for several acclaimed Tamil films, is making his Malayalam debut with ‘Puzhu’. It is worth a mention that he has earlier worked with Mammootty in ‘Peranbu’. Jakes Bejoy has been assigned as the music director and Deepu Joseph will be handling the edits. Art director Manu Jagadh, sound designers Vishnu Govind and Sree Sankar, costume designer Sameera Saneesh and project designer Badhusha are also part of the team.
The fact that Mammootty and Parvathy are coming together, particularly after the ‘Kasaba’ issue, where the actress called out the alleged misogyny in the film, has already raised a lot of curiosity about ‘Puzhu’. The makers have so far been tight-lipped about revealing details regarding the lead characters or the film’s genre.
Stay tuned for more updates.
