Lailaa O Lailaa, the much awaited Mohanlal starrer, directed by Joshiy is reportedly slated to release for April 30th. According to the sources related to the movie, the crew is planning to release the movie by the end of April.
The highly anticipated movie will have Amala Paul,
playing the female lead opposite Mohanlal. Lailaa O
Lailaa, which was initially planned in the year 2013, started
filming by August 2014, after delaying for multiple times.
It was also rumoured that the project is shelved, due to the
creative differences between scenarist Suresh Nair and director
Joshiy. Later, Mohanlal himself had confirmed that the project is
very much on pipeline.
The team actually planned to release the movie for Christmas
2014. Later, it was reported that Lailaa O Lailaa will hit
the theatres for Vishu. But the lag in the shooting schedules and
Mohanlal's further commitments affected the release.
Lailaa O Lailaa is one of the very rare Malayalam
movies, which experienced such a great delay in the filming and
release. Most of the Mollywood flicks will complete the filming
within 60-90 days. But Lailaa O Lailaa completed the
filming in a time span of 7 months, in 3 schedules.
The filming of the movie has completed in Hampi, last week.
Rahul dev, Joy Mathew, Ashvin Mathew, Vijay Menon, Kiran Raj,
Kainat Arora etc will play the other pivotal roles. Remya Nambeesan
will appear in a cameo role.
S Lokanathan handles the cinematography and Shyam Sasidharan handles the editing. Gopi Sundar composes the music. Lailaa O Lailaa is produced by Santhosh Kottayi, Bijou Antony and Preeta Nair under the banner Finecut Entertainments.
