Odiyan teaser: Mohanlal’s massive transformation to play Manickan is impressive. Watch video
Mohanlal’s next film Odiyan has raised expectations after the third teaser of the film was released on December 13. The teaser featured actor Mohanlal in a never-seen-before avatar. The massive transformation after the actor managed to shed 18 kg is visible in the teaser that feature Odiyan’s Manickan. Director VA Shrikumar, who shared the teaser on the Facebook page wrote, “Odiyan Teaser. Unveiling the transition of #Odiyan Manickan. Presenting to you the young and vibrant Manickan in me who travelled back in time.”
Mohanlal addresses time as Manickan (as if time was a person) and says, “Thank you, Time. The many years that have passed since I failed and now renewing my connection to Thenkurissi.” Looks like Manickan travels through to time and space in this film.
The teaser comes to an end when Manickan, with a smug look on his face says, “The game is about to begin.”
The film also has Manju Warrier and Prakash Raj playing pivotal roles. Actors Mohanlal and Prakash Raj will be seen sharing screen space after two decades. The two of them worked together in the cult film, Iruvar, directed by Mani Ratnam.
Odiyan features Mohanlal in three different avatars -- the man in the present, the young Manickan and the look of an ascetic -- in the fantasy thriller. The Velipadinte Pushtakam actor has worked hard on this project and took the help of French experts to help with his physical transformation, which took place in 51 days.
The music for the film is composed by M Jayachandran, while the back ground score was composed by Sam CS, who rose to fame after composing for Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi’s Vikram Vedha. Produced by Aashirvad Cinemas, this project marks the debut of ad director Shrikumar in the full length film. The director-actor duo will work on the Rs 1000 crore Mahabharata project based on the Malayalam novel Randamoozham.
