Mohanlal’s much-talked-about upcoming film, Odiyan is one of the anticipated films of the year. The makers of the film had recently shared the first teaser and it received a good response on the social media. The film is currently in post-production stage and the makers are eyeing to release it in October this year. The movie is based on an interesting subject of shapeshifting which means that men can transform themselves into a different being or a creature. The Odiyan community existed in Kerala before the existence of electricity.
In the film, Mohanlal transforms into various animals shapes and has been shown aging from the age of 30 to 65. Hollywood stunt master Peter Hein has been hired to choreograph the stunts. Whats interesting is that the VFX of the film will be done by Ajay Devgn’s VFX Company, NY VFXwaala. Now, we are expecting something never seen on the big screen with Mohanlal’s Odiyan.
The film is directed by VA Shrikumar who has also signed Mohanlal for another film which will be made on a budget of Rs.1000 Crore.
Odiyan is being produced by Antony Perumbavoor who is also a long time associate and close friend of Mohanlal. The film is being made on a huge budget and is said to be a fantasy thriller. In such a lean and never-seen-before look, Mohanlal is set to enthrall his fans with Odiyan. Mohanlal’s makeover in Odiyan has sent his fans into a frenzy and the response to his new lean look is quite overwhelming. Odiyan was a tribal community in the Palakkad-Malabar region and is known for scaring people in order to make a living.
Odiyan also stars Manju Warrier and Prakash Raj. The movie is slated to release on October 11, 2018, and will be dubbed in Hindi.
