The upcoming flick Koothara, directed by Srinath Rajendran, is already a much talked about film largely due to the extended cameo by Mohanlal in a reportedly villainous role – the first baddie he has played in decades! And now we get a peek behind the curtain, courtesy of the crew themselves!
Now, apart from the beautifully designed poster which gained international recognition, the universal star’s look in the movie was the first thing that caught everyone’s eye; departing from the dashing look that leading men are always known to carry, this one has Lalettan sporting a ruffian image with a long unruly beard and matted, thick hair.
The film itself mainly stars Bharath, Sunny Wayne and Tovino Thomas in the lead as it tells the story of three college mates who, bored with life, go on a vacation of some sort that leads to events which turn their lives upside down.
The project was mostly shot in the Lakshadweep, though some parts were also shot near the Andaman and Nicobar islands. It was here on the high seas, while shooing the climax scenes of the film, that Sunny and Tovino were both injured, though they have now recovered.
The youngsters said they were thrilled to have gotten the chance to work with Mohanlal and did not mind their injuries which were ‘all part of the job’. Quite professional, guys… good form!
The motion picture has been written by Vini Vishwa Lal and is being produced by Marikkar Productions.
