Sohanlal teams up with Thilakan in ‘Orkkuka Vallappozhum’
Music lovers all over cannot forget the recently concluded Raga Ratnam Junior show. The quality of the show was appreciated by all and even managed to get the prime time of Amrita TV for it's telecast and even continued after the Finals due to viewer's demand.
Mr. Sohanlal, the producer and director of the show, daring and courageous man behind such a venture is coming up with an exciting project - a movie this time. Thilakan is doing a key character in the film ‘Orkkuka Vallappozhum’ to be directed by Sohanlal. A promising artiste, director and more over a daring person who wish to innovate, who made the beautiful ‘Neermaathalathinte Pookkal’, a telefilm about poetess Kamala Das. In the movie ‘Orkkuka Vallappozhum’, Thilakan plays the character of a 75 year old.
It is known to all that the thespian has not been getting characters commensurate to his potential and righteously has been voicing his protest against this for sometime now. This is an opportunistic character which may bring out the best in him as the role promises much emotion projecting his talents, yet un-explored by others.
Shilpabala, a new face, plays the heroine.
The filming of the movie, produced by Vinu Y.S for God’s Own Moviz, is scheduled for September at Kuttikkanam. Music is by M.Jayachandran. Music lovers can listen to some good scores including onne of P Bhaskaran’s poems in this movie. The story is narrated in a nostalgic mood where veteran Sethumadhavan makes feeble attempts to return to the innocence of his past.
