First single from Pookkaalam out
The film is directed by Aanandam-fame Ganesh Raj
We had earlier reported about Aanandam director Ganesh Raj making a comeback after seven years with Pookkaalam, starring Vijayaraghavan and KPAC Leela as the leads. On Friday, the makers shared the first single from the film. Titled 'Manasilum Pookkaalam', the song is sung and composed by Sachin Warrier, with lyrics by Kaithapram.
Pookkaalam has Vijayaraghavan playing a 100-year-old's role in the film. His remarkable makeover for the character Ittoop has already grabbed a lot of attention. Others in its elaborate cast include Vineeth Sreenivasan, Basil Joseph, Johny Antony, Arun Kurian, Annu Antony, Roshan Mathew, Abu Salim, Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Sarath Sabha, and Sarasa Balusserry. Honey Rose, Ranjini Haridas, and late actor Kochu Preman will also be seen making brief appearances.
Earlier while announcing the project, Ganesh shared that if his maiden film Aanandam 'primarily dealt with youngsters', Pookkaalam is an attempt to 'explore a story about the very amongst us'. He has also scripted the film, while retaining his Aanandam cinematographer Anend C Chandran and music director Sachin Warrier on the technical front. The film is produced by Vinod Shornur and Thomas Thiruvalla.
