The Complete Actor Mohanlal will be seen playing a retired cop in his upcoming film ‘Villain’ which is directed by B.Unnikrishnan. Said to be a thriller, ‘Villain’ also features Tamil actors Vishal and Hansika in important roles and will mark their debut in Malayalam cinema. Buzz in the Malayalam film circles is that ‘Villain’ is all set to break the records set by Mohanlal’s earlier film ‘Pulimurugan’ in terms of numbers of screens it would release. ‘Pulimurugan’ was released in more than 130 screens on day 1 of release specially for fans and this record might be broken by ‘Villain’ which is set to be released in more than 130 screens.
A report in TNM says that fan associations have already managed to get 120 screens for release already and the number is set to go up in the coming days ahead of the release. Releasing on October 27th, 2017, ‘Villain’ has a heavy star cast which includes big names like Manju Warrier, Vishal, Hansika, Telugu actor Srikanth, Aju Varghese and Antony Perumbavoor among others. With such heavy star cast and high expectations on the film, trade experts are predicting that many other records set by Mohanlal’s previous releases may also be broken.
‘Villain’ will also mark the debut of popular Tollywood actress Raashi Khanna as well and will be an important role. Mohanlal’s salt and pepper look is now the much talked about look in Mollywood circles. Touted to a suspense-thriller, Villain seems to have all the right elements to be another super hit in Malayalam cinema and a perfect debut for Vishal, Hansika and Raashi in Mollywood.
