Mani has signed two new films where he will be the sole hero.
Unfortunately, Mani is having a bad run in the box office as films
where he was the hero have done poor business. These films without
strong stories tried to portray Mani in village roles with violence
and action but the choosy Malayalee audience rejected them.
After the dismal run of these films, Mani resorted to playing
villain and supporting roles but now, it seems that he wants to try
his luck again. Two new flicks have been announced with Mani as
hero: Kaliyuga Raman and Malayali. Malayali will feature Mani as an
innocent villager named Nandhilethu Madhavan. The film, produced by
Real Cinema, will be directed by debut director V.S. Sudheesh. The
film is scripted by J. Pallasseri and shooting will start at
Vadakkancheri and Palakkad.
