Oppam, the upcoming Mohanlal starrer directed by Priyadarshan, has started rolling in Kochi. Mohanlal is reportedly playing a blind man in the movie, which is said to be an investigation thriller.
The actor, himself announced the news through his official Facebook page, recently. The movie will be widely shot at the various locations of Kochi, Kodaikanal, and Chennai.

As per the sources, Oppam revolves around a murder mystery and a blind man who accidently gets involved in it. The movie is produced by Antony Perumbavoor, under the banner Aashirvad Cinemas.
Vimala Raman, the popular actress makes a comeback into Mollywood, as the leading lady of the movie. Nedumudi Venu, Mamukoya, Kannada actress Sanchita Shetty etc play the other pivotal roles.
If the reports are to be true, the Tamil actor-director Samuthirakani, who has earlier shared the screen with Mohanlal in Shikkar, will play the antagonist in Oppam. But it has not been confirmed yet.
Oppam is penned by debutante Govind and director Priyadarshan, himself. The songs and background score of the movie are composed by five debutant music directors. Madhu Vasudevan pens the lyrics.
It is a highly ambitious project for Priyadarshan, who is going through a low phase in his career. Mohanlal-Priyadarshan team's last outing Geethanjali was a huge failure.
