The clash of the titans
The casting coup of producer Antony Perumbavoor to cast Mammootty and Mohanlal together has gone awry. Remember that the two superstars had last appeared in Narasimham five years back by the same producer, which was a big hit. Now the latest we hear is that Mammootty has postponed the project and instead will do a film with director Ranjith for producers Valiyaveedans for Onam 2005. There is some kind of ego problem between the superstars after Mammootty’s Thommanum Makkalum became a super hit. His advisors say that at least now he has been accepted by his fans in a role where he had to dance and do comedy.
Meanwhile Antony Perumbavoor, Mohanlal’s hatchet man and producer has planned a big budget action movie for Onam 2005 titled Thappana in which Mohanlal will play a larger-than-life super hero set against a village milieu. The film will be directed by Joshi based on a script by Ranjan Pramod, whose claim to fame is Dileep’s Meesa Madhavan.
Jayasurya and Jagathy will play important roles in the film with Chaya Singh likely to be the heroine. It will have music by Deepak Dev who gave the chartbusters in Udayananu Tharam. It will be distributed by Central Pictures, Kottayam.
Mammootty at the same time will be having a story session with director Ranjith in the first week of May and he is also keen to do an all out action movie with Rahman playing the villain role. So this Onam it will the clash of the titans.
