Last year, ‘Itihaasa’ turned out to be a sleeper hit in Mollywood. The audience loved Anusree paired opposite Shine Tom. The good news is that the two are pairing up in yet another film. This time, they would be seen in the upcoming ‘Saigal Padukayanu’ by Sibi Malayil.
But the film is not based on musician Saigal’s life, even though the title suggests so. Sibi Malayil says that the film is a musical. The filmmakers have chosen Kozhikode for the shooting. But Sibi doesn’t reveal anything about the plot or the characters of ‘Saigal Padukayanu’. The script has been penned by TA Rasaq. The other members of the cast are – Sudheer Karamana, Mamukoya, Madhupal and Siddique. Rafeeq Ahmed has written the lyrics and the background score would be created by M Jayachandran.
The last one by Sibi Malayil was the 2014 ‘Njangalude Veettile Adhithikal’. The lead characters featured were Priyamani and Jayaram. The film had received mixed reviews from critics. It was a family drama and narrated the tragedy that a couple have to face as their daughter meets with an accident. ‘Njangalude Veettile Adhithikal’ was deemed just watchable by some critics. While some others called it worth a watch.
