A big-budget movie will be helmed by the veteran director Vinayan as he has announced it recently via a Facebook post. The name of the movie is 19 aam Noottandu.
The ace director has shared that it took him several years of analysis, research, and discussions to write the script. Gokulam Gopalan will bankroll the film under Sree Gokulam Movies’ banner.
If everything goes as per the plans, the director is willing to start the filming from this year’s December. Stories of renowned figures from the 19th century such as Arattupuzha Velyaudha Panicker, Nangeli, Kayamkulam Kochunni and others will be projected in the film.
Mohanlal and Mammootty launched the title poster of the period epic. The upcoming venture of Mohanlal will start followed by the completion of work for the superstar’s directorial debut titled Barroz. The movie was announced sometimes back and it may release in 2021, due to the changed circumstances.
The director always keeps looking for fresh faces and wants to give chance to newcomers in his movies. Earlier in an interview he said that succeeding with newcomers playing key roles gives him satisfaction. This project will involve a lengthy list of cast as well.
The director has made a comeback to the cinema last year after 10 years of the unofficial ban and after that, we have seen him with a bunch of projects. He had some issues with the Association of Malayalam Movies and the Employees Federation of Kerala. As the president of AMMA, Mohanlal did not share a good rapport with Vinayan then.
