The person who will be most eager for this Mulla to blossom would be Dileep. Like Mohanlal, Dileep has his back to the wall with back to back flops,including colossal loss of Calcutta News. Like Mohanlal, for this summer, Dileep has left his fate in the hands of one of the most bankable directors in Malayalam, Lal Jose. Riding high on back to back victories of Classmates and Arabikatha, Lal Jose has teamed up with script wiriter Sindhuraj for Mulla. Movies which Sindhuraj had scripted before include Jalolsavam, Meghasandesam and Pattanathil Sundaran – not a list of winners. We are eager to know if Lal Jose factor will make a difference.
Another novelty is the music by Vidyasagar to the lyrics of Vayalar Sarath. Lal Jose introduces 3 new leading ladies in this movie. Meera Nandan, Reena Basheer, Shruthi Menon.
The highlight of Mulla is that he is introducing a new heroine Meera Nandan from Kochi, who was the anchor of a reality show on television. She is doing her Plus two in a school, and looks beautiful and has typical the girl next door looks. Says Lal Jose: â€œThe character she plays in Mulla is that of Latchi a bubbly girl who works in a bakery. She has the looks of my character and I think she can emote well.â€
Another important character is Vasanthi a gypsy girl who goes around in trains singing songs. For that Lalu has found a girl from Mumbai Sruthi Menon, a dusky beauty. The other new face is Reena Basheer, who plays the role of Malathy, the wife of a dada in a colony. The story takes place against the background of trains and a slum colony, near the Railway station.
The others in the cast are Innocent, Salim Kumar, Riza Bava, Binish Kodiyeri, Anoop Chandran. Sindhuraj has written the story; camera is by Vipin Mohan and for the first time upcoming lyric writer Vaylar Sarathchandra Varma is being teamed up with the hit maker Vidyasagar. Lal Jose is back with Mulla
Dileep had tonsured his head to suit the character in this movies. Director Lal Jose and script writer too tonsured their head
in an expression of solidarity. We hope that it won’t be producer’s turn to do that after the movie is released.
