After Aanum Pennum, one more Malayalam anthology project is gearing up for release. Titled Cheraathukal, the project is a collection of six stories helmed by six directors. All six directors are making their debuts with Cheraathukal.
Mala Parvathi, Mareena Michael, and Adil Ibrahim are among the leads in the film. One of the stories is by acclaimed writer CV Balakrishnan.
Dr Mathew Mampra is producing Cheraathukal under the banner of the Mampra Foundation.
Speaking about the anthology, the team says, “The six stories handle six emotions. Mareena Michael plays a bold and bubbly home nurse with a modern outlook. Adil stars as an unemployed engineer who finds bliss through entrepreneurship, while Maala plays a strong-minded Christian nun."
The film has also six music directors, with Shefin Mayan as the sound designer. Vidhu Prathap, Ishan Dev, Thaha Kolpad and Nithya Mammen are the singers.
The other major actors in the project are Devaki Rajendran, Manohari Joy, Babu Annoor, Parvathi Arun and Sunil Guruvayoor. Cheraathukal was shot during the pandemic with around 100 technicians.
