Just before his production of the multi-crore epic film Randamoozam, ad film maker V A Shrikumar Menon has announced another big budget film -- Odiyan. The Mohanlal-starrer is claimed to be the most expensive film ever made in Malayalam and would be one of the strongest characters in Mohanlal's career. If reports are to be believed, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan will play a pivotal role in Odiyan. Manju Warrier will be the lead actress. The script is written by journalist Harikrishnan, a national award winner.
The movie also has a long list of talents. Prakash Raj will appear as an anti-hero for the movie and the actions sequences will be choreographed by Peter Hein. Shajikumar will handle the camera and Sabu Cyril is the production designer. The movie is expected to show visual effects in a never-seen-before manner and will be edited by Sreekar Prasad. A lot of money is also expected to be spent for VFX. Music for Odiyan will be created by M. Jayachandran. Sound designer Satheesh, who has done the sound recording of Baahubali and Rangoon, has also been roped in.
