The director"s recent release Pranchiyettan and the Saint, which received critical acclaims, also starred Mammootty. However, this time, Ranjith is only providing the script and would let G S Vijayan direct it. He is also producing the film under his banner Capitol Theatre.
Mammootty has earlier worked under the direction of Ranjith in the films like Kerala Cafe, Paleri Manikyam: Oru Pathira Kolapathakathinte Katha, Kaiyoppu, Prajapathi and Black.
Ranjith received critical acclaims for his recent films like Kerala Cafe, Palery Manickyam and Pranchiyettan. Ironically, the veteran filmmaker has decided not to return to the spicy movies that was the base of success of most of his earlier movies.
He has been successful as a scriptwriter, as he wrote most of the script of the movies directed by himself. The recently released Pranchiyettan and the Saint also has script by him. So, the latest venture with Mammootty is expected to do good!
