Proud to be a part of Odiyan, says M Jayachandran

The composer along with the film's director VA Shrikumar Menon took to Facebook to talk about their experiences working on the Mohanlal-starrer

The final mixing of Odiyan is underway and director VA Shrikumar Menon along with music director M Jayachandran took to Facebook to call their experience on the film one of the proudest moments of their lives. 

A total of around four songs are expected to be in the film. Shankar Mahadevan and Shreya Goshal have lent their voices to the film in addition to one sung by Mohanlal. Rafeeq Ahmed has penned the lyrics, with Shrikumar's daughter contributing lyrics to one of the songs.

M Jayachandran said, "Shrikumar's confidence in me inspired me so much. And Mohanlal has always been an inspiration, right from my childhood. He was one of the reasons for me coming to cinema." 

Shrikumar said, "There is a rhythm to Odiyan, something that is found in the old stories told to us by our grandparents. This is the brief I gave Jayachandran, and from that, he has created something so magical. Jayachandran's music has always amazed me. We didn't think of anyone else for this project." 

Shrikumar didn't forget to praise Prakash Raj's performance in the film calling it "monumental" and added that Manju Warrier's role is the best of her career. "Everyone has put their heart and soul into it, from the actors to the tea boy", he said.

Odiyan is slated for release in October.
