This is a much awaited movie because of many reasons :
- It is a Lal Jose movie. Lal Jose is one of the few sensible directors left in Malayalam and all his movies generate a certain kind of buzz.
- It is being written by MT Vasudevan Nair, Malayalam Cinema's strongest scriptwriter ever. Director Priyadarshan has been waiting for MT to give him a script for a long time now. But MT chose to work with the younger Lal Jose.
- It is a remake of a yesteryear classic with the same name, written by MT himself. It is for the first time that an old film is being remade into a new one in Malayalam.
- It has music by Vidyasagar, who is returning to Malayalam after a long back, that too with Lal Jose with whom he has given some huge hits. (Meeshamadhavan, Chandranudikkunna Dikkil, etc)
- The cast majorly consists of fresh faces and it would be a delightful change to see these young actors display their talent under the guidance of Lal Jose and MT.
I have already given 5 good reasons to watch the movie. You can find more reasons while watching this first video that is out now of a song from the movie. It was posted by Lal Jose himself onto YouTube and his blog recently. From the voice, I am guessing its Shreya Ghoshal who is doing the vocals. The visuals look great as expected from Lal Jose.
