Geetu`s re entry in to Malayalam
Geetu Mohandas” upcoming movie Moothon has been creating quite a buzz since its announcement and rightly so. The actress-turned-filmmaker has roped in a stellar team featuring some of the best talents in the Indian film industry for her debut directorial in Malayalam, titled Moothon.
The movie has Nivin Pauly in the lead, Anurag Kashyap helping with the Hindi dialogues, Rajeev Ravi as cinematographer, Kunal Sharma, sound engineer of Gangs of Wasseypur, Wasiq Khan as production designer, Sneha Khanwalkar as music director and Sunil Rodrigues, action director of Dilwale… apart from artist Riyas Khomu and singer Govind Menon as part of the team.
“The fact that such amazing people have come together to collaborate is indeed the highlight of the film,” says Geetu, whose first movie Liar’s Dice was India’s official entry for the 87th Academy Awards.
Nivin, who will start shooting for the film in April, says, “It’s a dream movie for me with one of the most talented crew in India. I am super excited to be part of the movie. My greatest challenge will be to deliver the character and match their quality and expectations. Language wise, there would be Hindi and the Lakshadweep dialect. So, there’s a lot of homework to be done and I am thrilled to have landed the role.”
On the movie’s plot, Geetu says, “The basic thread is about a boy from Lakshadweep who goes out in search of his brother. We are shooting in Lakshadweep and Mumbai. Currently, the pre-production is going on for the VFX and other aspects.”
