Oruthee shooting wrapped up
Oruthee, which stars Navya Nair and Vinayakan in the lead, marks the comeback of the former to the big screen
We had recently reported that Navya Nair is returning to the silver screen with VK Prakash’s Oruthee. The shoot for this film has been wrapped up, and it is now moving to the post-production phase.
The makers have revealed that the film is a survival drama, with Navya playing Radhamani, a name that sounds similar Balamani, her character from Nandhanam.
Touted as an action-comedy entertainer, Oruthee is described as a film that revolves around the unexpected events that Radhamani, a mother of two kids and the conductor of a boat that runs in the Ernakulam-Vypin route, has to overcome in three days.
Saiju Kurup plays the role of her husband who works abroad, while Vinayakan stars as a sub-inspector. The latter has been tagged as the male lead and this is expected to be different from the characters he has portrayed so far.
VK Prakash said the S Suresh Babu-scripted film has a realistic tone and has been made to appeal to all kinds of family audiences. “Navya is coming back to cinema after a long time and this is the sort of powerful character that fits someone of her calibre perfectly,” he added.
Aside from Navya, Vinayakan, and Saiju, Oruthee also stars KPAC Lalitha, Santosh Keezhatoor, Vyshakh, Sreedevi Varma, and Kalabhavan Haneef among others.
Jimshi Khalid (Anuraga Karikkin Vellam) has handled the camera, while Lijo Paul (Aadu) is in charge of the editing. Gopi Sundar has composed the music to the lyrics written by Alankode Leelakrishnan and BK Harinarayanan.
Jyotish Shankar (Kumbalangi Nights) is the production designer. Benzy Nazar is bankrolling the film under the banner of Benzy Productions.
