B. Unnikrishnan, director of Madambi, is heard to be planning a film titled Thiruthu, based on the famous short story of the same name by N.S. Madhavan. Unnikrishnan is said to have started working on the script. If all goes well, the film will grace theatres within a few months. Unnikrishnan also prefers to produce this small budget movie and it should be interesting to see the big screen version of this award-winning short story.
Meanwhile, Madambi featuring Mohanlal and Kavya Madhavan together for the first time, is still running successfully in 26 theatres across Kerala and is set to complete 50 days. It is still getting good response from the viewers and has reportedly made a profit of Rs. 3 crores till date. Mohanlal plays the role of a money-lender who is also a language lover in Madambi. His business is threatened when a bank opens its branch in the village offering loans at a much lower interest rate. The bank manager (Kavya Madhavan) and Mohanlal are business rivals, constantly at loggerheads, and later predictably fall in love.
