Five years after the release of his 'Krishna Gopalakrishna', writer-director-musician cum actor Balachandra Menon (known as Malayalam Bagyaraj) is all set to bounce back with a film titled De! Ingottu Nokkiye ('Hey! Look Here'). The film will be produced by AV Anoop (who had earlier produced Pranayakaalam as well as a documentary on Raja Ravi Varma) under the AVA Productions banner. The film is set to hit the floor soon.
Though more details are still awaited, 'De! Ingottu Nokkiye...' will feature lyrics by Bichchu Thirumala and music by M Jayachandran, and will be brought to the theatres by Vaishakha Releases. The film was launched recently with the pooja ceremony held at Hotel Avenue Centre in Kochi, during which Minister M Vijayakumar lit the traditional nilavilakku.
Veteran producer TE Vasudevan performed the first clap, while Priyadarshan put the switch on. Nothing is known about the cast though it is rumoured that Balachandra Menon himself will be playing a key role.
