Mohanlal’s Odiyan will be the next big thing in Malayalam cinema and will have The Complete Actor playing the role of a menacing character in it. Mohanlal has lost 18 kgs for his role in Odiyan and will be seen sporting a fitter look in it. Directed by VA Shrikumar Menon, Odiyan will also feature Manju Warrier and Prakash Raj in important roles. Speaking about Manju’s role in the film, director Shrikumar Menon said that Manju Warrier will be seen playing a role which will be set in three different ages, mid 20s, 30s and 50s. Menon also says that Manju’s role in the film will be one of the finest ones and will be on par with Mohanlal and Prakash Raj’s characters.

“Her character is shown in her late 20s, at 35 and in her 50s. She will have three looks in the movie. Her character is pivotal as both Mohanlal’s and Prakash Raj’s roles revolve around her,” Shrikumar was quoted as saying by TOI.

“It’s definitely one of the finest roles she has played. She has had a stellar career, but the role that stands out is that in Aaram Thampuram, because she was pitted against Mohanlal. In her comeback movies, apart from Ennum Eppozhum, most of her roles were solo heroine movies. I believe actors excel in their roles when they share screen space with other brilliant performers. In Odiyan, she is pitted against two of India’s finest actors — Mohanlal and Prakash Raj,” he adds further.

Manju, on the other hand, says that it’s a completely different feeling acting alongside Mohanlal. “It’s definitely one of the finest roles she has played. She has had a stellar career, but the role that stands out is that in Aaram Thampuram, because she was pitted against Mohanlal. In her comeback movies, apart from Ennum Eppozhum, most of her roles were solo heroine movies. I believe actors excel in their roles when they share screen space with other brilliant performers. In Odiyan, she is pitted against two of India’s finest actors — Mohanlal and Prakash Raj,” says Manju.
