Prithviraj and Padmakumar team are parting ways on an unpleasant note. This team has rendered some good movies onscreen like Vasthavam, Vargam and Ammakilikkoodu. They had recently got together again for the movie Pathiramanal. The two had complemented each other very well. When through Padmakumar's movies, the actor in Prithviraj came to light and bagged a State award for Vasthavam, Padmakumar also achieved fame as a director in turn.
However differences cropped up between the two when Prithvi walked out of the movie Pathiramanal saying that the script is very bad. Babu Janardhanan who had written the script for the movies Vasthavam and other movies of Prithviraj like Thalappavu and Calendar had penned the script for this film as well.
Prithviraj had given the dates earlier itself. However with just a few days to start the shooting, the actor backed out from the script. The news also goes that Prithviraj took this step after the movie Calendar which was written by Babu Janardhanan failed at the box office. Jaysurya, one of the promising actors of this age has stepped into the role to save the face of the director. The movie which centers around revenge theme is to commence shooting very soon
If the movie succeeds at the box office, then Jayasurya would earn an action hero image. History has time and again witnessed how movies which were declined by one hero proved lucky for those came to fill that slot. When Mammooty backed out of Rajavinte Makan years ago, Mohanlal would have hardly imagined then that it would catapult him to highest pedestals of stardom. Lets see whose stars are shining bright.
