Muhsin Parari (co-writer of Virus and Sudani from Nigeria) will be co-directing this production, which is slated to begin next year, on the 100th anniversary of the revolution.

Vaariyamkunnan has a script by Harshad and Rameez. Harshad recently wrote the script for the Mammootty-starrer Unda.

Zikandar and Moideen are bankrolling the film under the banner of Compass Movies Ltd.

Cinematographer Shyju Khalid (Kumbalangi Nights, Anjaam Pathira) will be part of the team alongside editor Saiju Sreedharan (Virus, Kumbalangi Nights).

Prithviraj will essay the role of Variyan Kunnathu Kunjahammed Haji, a self-made Sultan who established his own parallel government and formed his own army. As per the synopsis from the team, Vaariyamkunnan will narrate the untold story of a legendary revolutionary who rebelled against the British empire.
