‘Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam’ directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery is eagerly awaited by many since it marks Mammootty’s first collaboration with the acclaimed filmmaker. Apart from the IFFK, the film is also expected to be screened at some other international film festivals. ‘Ariyippu’ has already been picked up at Locarno, London (BFI) film festival and Busan festival.
