Young director Vysakh has been exceptional in creating multistar movies that go well with the masses. He had been able to convert his previous two films- ‘Seniors’ and ‘Pokkiriraja’, into big hits. Now the young director is coming up with his third movie ‘Mallu Singh’ all set to get released this May.
One of the most expected movies of the year, this will be the one of the rare Malayali movies using that Punjabi flavor in the songs and dance sequences with its dominant colors. Featuring Unni Mukundan in the lead with the support cast of the hit gang from his seniors, including Kunchakko Boban, Biju Menon, Suraj Venjaaramoodu and Manoj K Jayan, the movie is planned as a fun ride with a impressive family story.
‘Mallu singh’ was planned with Prithviraj as the hero.. But due to clash of dates the crew has to switch over to Unni Mukundan, who appeared handsome and exceptionally talented with his initial films. The movie thus has become a test for the young actor to enter the big league. If received well at the Box Office, ‘Mallu Singh’ is excepted to add a new crowd pulling hero into the list of young stars in Mollywood.
Unni Mukundan appear as Hareendra Singh who is running a Dhaba at Mallustreet in Punjab. Ani(Kunchakko Boban) is a commoner from Kerala who had a history of an younger brother running away from his home, a couple of years ago following a local issue. Accidentally, Ani happens to see the visuals of Hareendra singh in a television programme. Believing that this is his Hari, Ani sets out on a journey to Punjab to find out his closest relative.
The movie will also have a number of heroines- right from Samvrutha Sunil, Meera Nandhan, Rupa Manjari, Aparna nair and Radha Varma. Saikumar, Siddique, Sreejith Ravi, Suresh Krishna, Jojo, Geetha, Aparna Nair, and Lakshmi Krishnamoorthy lend support as the other important characters of the movie. The movie is the first independent script by Sethu of Sachi-Sethu fame.
The music of the film has been composed by M Jayachandran, while the lyrics have been penned by Rajeev Alungal and Murugan Kattakada. The songs of the movie including that in Punjabi beats and flavours are already big hits in the FM’s .The songs pictured ala Tamil songs ,choreographed by Shobin Paulraj will definitely stand out from the rest of the regular songs in Mollywood. While Shaji is in charge of cinematography, Mahesh Narayan does the editing. Produced by Neeta Anto under the banner of Ann Mega Media, ‘Mallu Singh’ would grace the screens on the lucky weekend of Vysakh, that is the first weekend of May.
