Kannada and Malayalam cinema industries are known for low budget movies than Telugu and Tamil industries. But, after the release of ‘Bahubali’ movie in Telugu, all south film industries had increased their budget and making films lavishly. For example, if you see ‘Ranna’ (Attarintiki Daredi) movie, where the hero Sudeep played the lead role, After seeing this film, it becomes clear. Now that budget hype has come to Malayalam cinema. Now, everyone is speaking about ‘Premam’ movie fame Nivin Pauly’s movie ‘Kayamkulam Kochani’. The movie is based on a life story of a gangster named Prabhupada thief in Kerala in the 1830s. This role is like a Robin Hood, and it had a huge craze among Malayalam audience. Earlier, in 1966, the Malayalam hero Sathyan played this role. The film ‘Kayamkulam Kochani’ was the most popular film of that day. Now the story is newly modified and making lavishly with a huge budget.
The film is directed by Roshan Andrews, where there is a special role in this film played by Malayalam star hero Mohan Lal. – The role played by Mohanlal is also a strange one – the character named ‘Idikkkara Pakki’ who is a close friend to that bandit. Director Roshan’s opinion is that no one can play this role except Mohan Lal. Firstly, he thought Kamal Haasan or Nagarjuna for this role. However, the character finally reached Mohan Lal.
In recent times, this film is set to be the biggest budget film in the Malayalam history. To create an atmosphere of the 1830s, the film unit has been struggling for a year.
The movie is about Rs 45 crore budget. To hear this we can say that it is approximate, but as we saw 100 crores film. For Malayalam audience this budget is huge. We must wait and see which image will portray for Nivin Pauly after this movie.
