Shoot of Martin Prakkat's thriller almost complete
A police story, the yet-to-be-titled film sees Martin Prakkat return to the director's chair after a brief hiatus
We reported a few months ago that Kunchacko Boban's next is a thriller directed by Martin Prakkat. The shoot of the as-yet-untitled film was approaching completion before the pandemic disrupted it.
The team has eight more days of shoot left to do in Ernakulam. As of now, they have completed around 54 days of shoot in locations such as Piravom, Munnar, and Kodaikanal.
Also starring Joju George and Nimisha Sajayan, the film marks the second writing venture of Shahi Kabir, who made his debut with Joju George-starrer Joseph. Though his new film is also a police story, the writer says it's completely different from Joseph. "I believe no one has attempted a thriller like this before," he adds.
Shahi also provides a comment on the ongoing theatres vs OTT discussion. As of now, the team has no plans to jump on the OTT bandwagon. "A direct OTT release wouldn't be practical for a film like this given how expensive the shooting process was," he says.
This is the first time that Martin Prakkat is doing a thriller. The film sees him return to the director's chair after a brief hiatus. His last directorial was Charlie, starring Dulquer Salmaan and Parvathy Thiruvoth.
The much-anticipated film has Shyju Khalid (Anjaam Pathira) as the director of photography and Mahesh Narayanan (Take Off) as the editor. Vishnu Vijay (Ambili) is the music composer. Director Ranjith's Gold Coin Pictures is jointly bankrolling the film with Martin Prakkat Films.
