The first look motion poster of Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal’s new film “Odiyan” was unveiled on Monday, and it is sure to give goosebumps to movie lovers.
The motion poster shows Mohanlal in a much younger avatar. With a trendy hairdo and chiseled muscles, he looks a simpleton in a sleeveless shirt. His enigmatic smile, the haunting background score and his signature laughter at the end of the motion poster will leave audience on tenterhooks until the film’s release. Mohanlal’s unbelievable makeover looks to be the biggest USP of Odiyan. He looks at least 20 years younger.
In the film, he plays the character of Odiyan Manikkan, the last surviving member of an allegedly vicious tribal community in Kerala. Set in the pre-electricity era and to be shot using 3D technology, Odiyan is said to be the most expensive film in the history of Malayalam cinema.
The movie will be directed by debutante VA Shrikumar Menon, who will also direct Mohanlal in Rs 1000 crore magnum opus, “The Mahabharata”. National Award winning scriptwriter Harikrishnan has written the script. ‘Baahubali’ fame Sabu Cyril is on board as production designer. Odiyan is expected to go on floors in the month of August.
