Odiyan’s final schedule set to kick-start on March 5
The team of Mohanlal’s upcoming movie Odiyan has been on a break for nearly two months now. The third and final schedule was supposed to start rolling this month but got pushed due to Mohanlal’s other commitments. Following that, there were reports about Odiyan getting delayed further.
However, director Shrikumar Menon has informed that the movie’s final leg of shoot will be commencing on March 5. The movie stars Mohanlal, Manju Warrier and Prakash Raj in the lead roles. In this upcoming schedule, the younger versions of the trio’s characters will be shot. All three of them will be appearing in multiple getups in the movie.
While Mohanlal plays Odiyan Manikyan, Manju Warrier essays the role of Prabha and Prakash Raj’s character is named Ravunni. The movie scripted by Harikrishnan is primarily about Odividya, a kind of black magic and people who practice it, called odiyans. The story is set in three different timelines starting from the pre-electricty days in the 1950s to 2000. The movie follows Manikyan’s life from his childhood to his 60s.
Odiyan is being made as a fantasy thriller that will have a mix of action, romance and magical realism. Around 60 days of shoot is left for the movie. Actors like Innocent, Sana Althaf, Kailas, Naren and Siddique are also part of this schedule. Aashirvad Cinemas headed by Antony Perumbavoor is funding this big budget movie.
