After his sensational debut with Katha Parayumbol (2007),
one of the finest films made in Malayalam in recent times, director
M. Mohanan now returns with Kudumbachitram, starring
Mohanlal in the lead.
Mohanan, brother-in-law of veteran Sreenivasan and a former
associate of director Sathyan Anthikkad, was originally waiting
quite some months for Mammootty to allot dates for
Kudumbachitram, but the project was delayed due
non-availablility of suitable dates. Finally, this young director
chose Mohanlal for the project.
Like Katha Parayumbol, Kudumbachitram will
also be a family-based subject. The script is handled by the
director himself. Produced by Maha Subair under the banner of
Varnachitra, who made the recent Prithviraj-starrer
Thirakkatha, Kudumbachitram is expected to start
rolling by the second quarter of 2009. More details about the cast
and crew are awaited.
