The Suresh Nair maiden directorial venture, Medulla Oblongata, apart from the unique and intriguing title, also has some other special features about it. The cast and some of the crew of the movie were almost all part of the recently conducted Celebrity Cricket League and the flick is also the first Malayalam production of the established and well known Tamil company Vendhar Movies.
But, that’s just not it – they film makers recently announced that for the promotion of the movie, which is to come out on May 9, they would not be spending money or as they put it – “wasting money” – on fancy ads or creative commercial gimmicks; instead they will be distributing free helmets to two wheeler riders thereby spreading the message of safety!
Now, it is unclear if this grand and socially sensible gesture in some way ties in with some theme of the movie, but there it is.
According to sources, the plot of the movie revolves around a few friends and how an event in the life of one affects everyone else in unforeseen or surprising ways. The film is toted to be a fun filled entertainer brimming with laugh riot moments.
Rahul Madhav and Aavana will be playing the male and female leads respectively while Saiju Kurup, Rakendhu, Arjun Nadakumar and Arun Benny among others will form the rest of the cast. It was earlier reported that Maqbool Salman, the nephew of Mammootty, will also be in the movie though his role remains unclear at the moment.
Well, May 9 is fast approaching and we’ll see what the seemingly refreshing project has to offer to the waiting fans.
