By Akhila Menon
Amal Neerad, the stylish film-maker is collaborating with young sensation Dulquer Salmaan, for a new project. Interestingly, the Dulquer movie has a connection with the Amal's debut movie, Big B the Mammootty starrer.
Big B, which was a path-breaking attempt in Mollywood, has launched 5 super-talented young cinematographers into the industry. The group, which consisted of 5 youngsters was known as Amal Neerad company.
Sameer Thahir was the DOP, while the other four members, Jomon T John, Shyju Khalid, Satheesh Kurup, and Ranadive assisted him. Later, Jomon became an independent cinematographer with Sameer's directorial debut, Chaappa Kurishu.
Satheesh and Shaiju made their debuts with Amal Neerad's Anwar and Rajesh Pillai's Traffic, respectively. Now, the 5th member of Amal Neerad company, Ranadive is making his debut, with the Dulquer Salmaan-Amal Neerad project.
Earlier, Ranadive had handled the cinematography of Amal's Dulquer starring segment Kullante Bharya, in the anthology movie 5 Sundarikal. But the upcoming project marks his official debut as an independent cinematographer.
Even though Sameer, Jomon, Shyju, and Satheesh became successful in their respective careers, Ranadive patiently waited for all these years as he wanted to debut with an Amal Neerad project. Finally, his dream has come true.
