The Nivin Pauly starrer Premam, to be directed by Alphonse Putharen, had their official ‘pooja’ recently and the movie is now set to go on the floors this week. Yes dear fans, we have another Nivin Pauly flick in the making!
Nobody in recent years can boast of having something similar to Nivin Pauly’s career record as a newcomer, with one super hit after another. At this rate, he may grab the ‘Popular Actor’ title from Dileep!
Let’s think about it for a second.. he debuted with the moderately successful Malarvadi Arts Club but then exploded in to a sensation with flicks like Neram, Thattathin Marayathu, 1983, Om Shanthi Oshana and need we even mention Bangalore Days?!
It looks like he’s here to stay.
Alphone Putharen, by the way, made his feature film directorial debut with Neram, which starred Nivin and Nazriya Nazim. He had, prior to that, made several short films, advertisements and a memorable music video – Nenchodu Cherthu – which too starred Nivin and Nazriya. In fact, Neram too was an expanded adaptation of a short film he made.
So it certainly feels like there is a good working relationship and a friendly and comfortable off screen vibe between Alphonse and Nivin. Perhaps this can simply be proven by the fact that both of them posted the exact same comment on Facebook after the Pooja of their new flick – Premam Poothu Thudangi..
The clever line which means ‘love has started blossoming’ is from a famous yesteryear song and implies that the movie Premam has begun. Good one guys..
The rest of the cast of the movie hasn’t been decided though. However, they have mentioned that they are on the lookout for two actresses to play the two female leads and that both parts require fluent Malayalam speakers.
Anwar Rasheed, the director turned producer who produced Bangalore Days, is producing this one under the banner of his company Anwar Rasheed Entertainment.
So there it is folks.. If the pattern holds true, and given the team involved, it looks like it will, we are about to have the next Nivin Pauly blockbuster on our hands!
