Odiyan background score will be rocking: Shrikumar Menon
The much-awaited Mohanlal strarrer ‘Odiyan’ is currently in the final stages of post-production. The makers are working tirelessly to ensure a smooth release on December 14. Last day, director Shrikumar Menon took to his social media handle to share couple of photos taken with composer Sam CS from one of their sessions. The director who seems to be highly impressed by the background score tweeted,
Sam in full flow with the back ground score of odiyan. With Sam in his studio listening his odiyan tracks. What a feeling. Am sure it’s going to rock!!#OdiyanRising #rise of desi super hero @mohanlal @themanjuwarrier
Sam CS shot to fame with his stellar work in the Pushkar-Gayatri directorial ‘Vikram Vedha’. For ‘Odiyan’ score, he has used ancient some ethnic Kerala musical instruments. The ‘Odi.. Odi.. Odiyan’ score used in the trailer has already become a rage among the fans. Since the movie is set in three different timelines, the composer had the scope to experiment. The movie is a mass-fantasy entertainer with a mix of action, romance and magical realism.
‘Odiyan’, scripted by National award winner Harikrishnan is primarily about odividya, a kind of black magic. People who practice it are called odiyans. They lived in mediveal Kerala and this movie is set in different timelines from pre-electricty days in the 1950s to 2000. Prakash Raj, Manju Warrier, Naren, Kailas, Sana Althaf and Manoj Joshi play the other major roles.
Antony Perumbavoor is producing the movie under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. The makers are working towards a grand release in December. As the pre-release hype is massive, ‘Odiyan’ is most likely to have the biggest ever release for a Malayalam movie.
