Mohanlal to transform into animals in Odiyan
After the blockbuster film Pulimurugan, superstar Mohanlal, is going to surprise his fans and audience with another visual treat. Mohanlal’s upcoming project ‘Odiyan’ is kept in high regards already. Fans are in great anticipation for the movie after its first motion poster release.
‘Odiyan’, directed by V A Shrikumar Menon and produced by Antony Perumbavoor, will be shot using 3D technologies. After Pulimurugan, the National Award winner Peter Hein will work in Odiyan as stunt master. He says ‘Odiyan’ is as challenging as Pulimurugan, because in Pulimurugan it is man vs animal, but in ‘Odiyan’ Mohanlal has to transform into various animals. Odiyan is a person who performs odi vidya. Odi Vidya is related to black magic and odiyan has the ability to change to various animals like ox, buffalo, fox, tiger, dog, etc.
Mohanlal will appear as a character Manikyan, who is an odiyan and life of Manikyan from age 35 to 65 is shown in the movie. As the character has a tremendous transformation and lots to perform, Mohanlal has to shrink a lot of weight to look like a 35-year-old.
Manu Warrier, Prakash Raj and Satyaraj will appear in lead roles. Music is composed by M Jayachandran for the lyrics written by Rafeeq Ahamed and Lakshmi Sreekumar. ‘Odiyan’ will be shot at Palakkad, Pollachi, Hyderabad, Udumalpet and Banaras.
