It is recently reported that superstar Mammootty has broken myths and rumours that he cannot dance or do comedy roles. He has proved, once and again, his ability to handle humorous roles and he danced superbly in many of his recent blockbusters like Annan Thampy, Thuruppu Gulan and Rajamanikyam. The dance and comedy sequences, which were the highlight of these mega movies, have been performed by the actor with much ease and flexibility. In fact, Mammootty moulded himself according to the current trend and taste of the audience who prefer to have vital ingredients -- comedy, action, emotions and dance sequences in movies.
Now, Mammootty has crooned for Shaji N. Karun's Kutty Shranku! It is a folk song for Chavittunatakam, a foot-stamping dance drama in Kerala. Earlier, Mammootty had sung a song "Puliyo Pulipuliyo" for Pallaavoor Devanarayanan, released in the late nineties; this is the second time Mammootty is lending his voice.
Shaji N. Karun has already shot the visuals of this song which starts with 'Karikkutty ente kalel', performed on screen by Mammootty and actress Kamalinee Mukherjee, who plays the daughter of a Chavittunatakam master in the film.
National award winning music director Thomas Kottukapalli sets the music and background score for the movie, where Mammootty is Kutty Shranku, a boatman who falls for three women -- Kamalinee Mukherjee, Padmapriya and Meena Kumari. Our superstar has become the one-man entertainer who can dance, fight, and sing!
