It’s official! Director Vinayan’s highly anticipated big-budget historical film Pathonpathaam Noottaandu is set to hit theaters this Onam season. The filmmaker took to his social media page on Saturday to make the big announcement for the film, which has Siju Wilson, Sudev Nair and Kayadu Lohar in the lead.
Vinayan thanked his team for all the effort and time they put in over the past two years to complete it and expressed his “sincere gratitude” to his producer Gokulam Gopalan for supporting the venture.
Production on the film had wrapped up last year, and the team had been busy with post-production for the past nine months. In a previous interview with us, Sudev, who plays the antagonist Padaveedan Nambi, the Deputy Chief of Travancore’s army, in the film, told us: “Mr. Vinayan approached this film in a totally different way. Siju Wilson has worked very hard to achieve his transformation. He worked day after day for the film. But Vinayan sir also deserves huge credit for visualizing that Siju can look like that and have complete confidence in him.
Pathonpathaam Noottaandu is set to face Nivin Pauly’s Padavettu, Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Gold, Basil Joseph’s Paaltu Janwar, Biju Menon’s Oru Thekkan Thallu Case and Mammootty’s Rorschach during the Onam season at the box office.
