Superstar Mohanlal and Priyadarshan’s upcoming crime thriller “Oppam” has been making headlines ever since it went on floors March 5. Soon after Mohanlal shared his happiness in joining the sets of his friend Priyan’s movie location, photos from the sets started doing the rounds on social media.
Vimala Raman, who is all set to make her comeback to Malayalam with the Mohanlal starrer, has also shared her excitement in working with the successful actor-director duo for the first time. “Peekaboo from the sets #oppam Loving working with two legends #mohanlal #priyadarshan. Super excited Life is great,” the actress posted on her Twitter page Saturday evening. “Last day of our #songshoot an honour dancing with the super talented #lalettan #oppam #kochi #summerheat #shoot,” the actress wrote while sharing some photos from the movie.
Mohanlal will be seen playing the role of a blind person in the crime thriller and it marks the comeback of the actor-director duo after the 2013 movie “Geethanjali,” even though it couldn’t make an impact among the audience.
While the story of the upcoming thriller has been written by newcomer Govind, the screenplay is handled by Priyadarshan. The lyrics of the movie’s songs have been penned by Vinu Vasudevan and five young music directors are said to compose its music and background score.
Meanwhile, Priyadarshan and Mohanlal have delivered many blockbusters in Malayalam, including “Poochakkoru Mookkuthi,” “Aram + Aram = Kinnaram,” “Boeing Boeing,” “Mazha Peyyunnu Maddalam Kottunnu,” “Thalavattam,” “Cheppu,” “Mukunthetta Sumitra Vilikkunnu,” “Vellanakalude Nadu,” “Chithram,” “Vandanam,” “Kilukkam,” “Abhimanyu,” “Mithunam, “Thenmavin Kombath,” “Minnaram,” “Kalapani,” “Chandralekha.” However, some of the recent Priyadarshan movies couldn’t make a mark at the box office and if “Oppam” will make an impact is something we need to wait and see.
