Mohanlal, Sarathkumar to teaming up for a road movie based on a true story

Director Bhadran’s Spadikam will always remain a highlight in Mohanlal’s career. While the duo had subsequently teamed up in Olympian Anthony Adam and Udayon, they have not been able to recreate that magic; however, Bhadran’s next movie could very well reverse that trend with the protagonist once again featuring shades of Aadu Thoma.

Mohanlal has allotted 100 days for the film, which is set to go on floors in January after he completes work on V A Shrikumar’s Odiyan and Ajoy Varma’s untitled movie.

On the upcoming film, Bhadran tells us, “It’s an action-packed movie, which is based on a true story. It has all the elements of an entertainer — romance, family drama and humour.”

Mohanlal’s character will speak a lot of languages in the film as he is not based in Kerala. “He is well versed in Malayalam, Hindi, English and many other languages. He travels a lot and based on the place he is in at a given time, he uses his skills to blends in accordingly,” says Bhadran. “It’s a powerful character and like Aadu Thoma in Spadikam, he has a gentle heart and at the same time is a rough and tough guy.”

The yet-to-be-titled film also has another distinction as it would be one of the rare road movies Mohanlal has been part of. “The story evolves after his character leaves from Kerala and so the film will be set entirely outside the State,” he says.
Bhadran, who has also scripted the movie, has roped in Sarathkumar, Remya Krishnan and Siddique as part of the cast too. “We will also be introducing a fresh face with the movie,” the director says.
