Mammootty, the megastar of Mollywood is joining hands with film-maker Ranjith once again, for the upcoming movie Puthan Panam. The movie, which is said to be an action thriller, was initially supposed to be released in April.
But now, the team has postponed the release of Puthan Panam to May. Recently, the sources close to the Mammootty project confirmed that the makers have finalised May 12 as the release date of the movie.
If the reports are to be believed, Puthan Panam has been postponed to May, as Mammootty's The Great Father is hitting the theatres on March 30. Reportedly, the makers want to avoid the competition with another Mammootty project.
Puthan Panam, which is scripted by director Ranjith himself, stars Mammootty as the central character Nithyananda Shenoy, a rich, middle-aged businessman who hails from Kumbala, of Kasargode district.
Interestingly, Mammootty will be using pure Kasargode dialect in the movie. The megastar's is also sporting a very different get-up in Puthan Panam, with salt n pepper hairstyle, silk shirt, and golden watch.
Om Prakash is the director of photography. Singer-musician Shahabaz Aman composes the songs and background score. Puthan Panam is produced by Ranjith, Abraham Mathew, and Arun Narayanan for 3 Colour Cinemas.
