No Malayalam actor has had as many musical hits as Mohanlal. Who can forget films like His Highness Abdullah, Bharatham, Chitram, Aaram Thampuran among many others? For the actor, song picturisation comes naturally when he emotes a classical or a duet song on screen.
After doing family entertainers and larger-than-life roles, Mohanlal is now doing a full length musical titled Vadakkumnathan, which has music by Raveendran. The Mohanlal- Raveendran-Yesudas trio has churned out many hits in the past.
Vadakkumnathan has Telugu actress Padmapriya as the female lead, and her recent role in Kazhcha was appreciated. In the film, Mohanlal plays Bharath Pisharody, a musical genius and the film is directed by Shajun Karial.
The actor had been to the Himalayas, Rishikesh and Hardwar last September for the first schedule of the film. Now the second schedule has started at Kanjangad near Kasaragod and the musical is expected to be completed soon.
Mohanlal says “Vadakkumnathan is different in all ways. Raveendran Master has given some mind blowing melodious classical numbers for the film and Dasettan's number Gange…Gange….. is one of the most soothing compositions that I have heard in recent times”. The songs are also rendered by Chitra, M.G.Sreekumar and Biju Narayanan.
Vadakkumnathan promises to be a visual treat for Mohanlal fans, as the actor has taken personal interest in picturisation of the songs.
