Renowned script writer John Paul is all set to make a comeback to films. It is nearly after 9 years that the writer is penning a script for a film.
According to reports, John Paul would pen the script for the upcoming Mohanlal film, which would be directed by Major Ravi.
The Major Ravi-Mohanlal film is touted to be a family drama, unlike the previous films from the same team. They were previously seen together for the film Karmayodha, which released in the year 2012.
Certain reports suggest that, the film is based on the famous short story named Qutab Minar, written by Ambika Nair. Mohanlal is said to be playing the role of a Delhi based Malayali named Balu, in this film.
It is indeed a great sign to see John Paul back in Malayalam films. Previous script of John Paul came 9 years back, for the film Nammal Thammil, which released in the year 2007. John Paul was later seen in an important role in Aashique Abu's Gangster.
With this film Major Ravi is also trying for a shift in genre. This film which would be a complete family drama, would definitely be a breakthrough in his career as a director.
Meanwhile, talks are on for Major Ravi's big budget film which would be based on the 1971 India-pakistan war, which again would have Mohanlal in the lead role. The director is planning to make war based film after the completion of this family drama featuring Mohanlal.
