After the success of ‘North 24 Katham’ and ‘SapthamaSree Thaskaraha’, 2013 National award winner Anil Radhakrishnan Menon is all set to direct his third Malayalam movie. Anil is known for presenting his movies with unaccustomed titles, and this upcoming flick will also join the same league, ‘Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi’ !
Lord livingstone is said to be the name of one of the protagonists, of this multi-starrer venture. Anil promises that this third venture will be aesthetically spectacular and he adds that the visual quality of this one will surpass both his previous works.
Kunchacko Boban, Bharath, Sunny Wayne, Reenu Mathews, Nedumudi Venu, Sudheer Karamana and Chemban Vinod Jose will portray the 7 lead characters of this fantasy drama. Just like SaptamaSree Thasakaraha, all the characters are said to be equally important, which is again distinct from conventional malayalam films.
Anil is also known for maintaining a friendly relationship with his cast and crew, and hence he prefers to hire those who have associated with him in his first two ventures. We are familiar with some of the lead technicians among Anil’s recurring collaborators too - Rex Vijayan, Jayesh Nair and Manoj Kannoth.
Jayesh Nair will lead the photography department of the movie, which will be primarily shot at various locations around Wayanad, Idukki, Pune and Chennai. Rex Vijayan will score the music for the movie and Manoj Kannoth will lead the Post-Production (Editing) department.
At Ottappalam, Anil Radhakrishnan Menon and his associates conducted a walk-in audition for all age groups, and uplifted the hope for many new comers.
Principal photography of the movie, produced by Global United Media, will commence on May 2nd at Wayanad.
Anil says that, even though the genre is Fantasy, by fair means the tale is associated with nature. Let us optimistically wait till the last quarter of 2015 to experience it.
