Mohanlal’s eagerly awaited big-budget movie Odiyan has received a ‘U’ certificate from the censor board and is getting ready for a worldwide release on 14 December.
The Tamil version of the film will also be out on the same day. The Telugu version also will be released simultaneously as well.
The much-awaited movie is likely to have the biggest release in over 3,000 screens—another first for a Malayalam film.
Directed by ad filmmaker VA Shreekumar the movie marks his directorial debut in feature films. The film has Manju Warrier and Prakash Raj in lead roles. The last time Mohanlal and Prakash Raj worked together was in 1997, for Mani Ratnam’s Iruvar.
Innocent, Siddique, Manoj Joshi, Nandhu, Narain, Kailash, Sreejaya Nair, Sana Althaf and Appani Sarath are the other actors. The film is scripted by National Award winner K Hari Krishnan and bankrolled by Antony Perumbavoor.
One of the highlights of Odiyan would be the action scenes choreographed by National Award winning action director Peter Hein.
