Marakkar Arabikkadalinte Simham is a Priyadarshan-Mohanlal collaboration movie. The film tells the story of Kunjali Marakkar and is a great visual feast for the audience. Priyadarshan has made the film with an emphasis on graphics. The big-budget film is being produced by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Ashirvad Cinemas. The film stars many celebrities from Malayalam, Tamil, and Hindi cuisines. Priyadarshan, the director of the film, has openly said that he had the story of Marakkar in his mind years ago.
The image of a warrior fighting aliens and performing magic at sea has been in my mind since I was in school. But I did not get a complete story anywhere. There are a number of things to keep in mind when making a film that recreates the old days. The roles of the film and the language to be spoken are very well discussed and prepared.
The language chosen for the film is understandable to people from all districts of Kerala. When that happens, the image will be comfortable for everyone. When I inquired about the costumes of the woodcutters, I came to know that Kylie was the common dress of the men of Malabar at that time. But it’s hard to dress Kylie and fight. You have to move your arms and legs easily during the war. Kunjali has chosen the kind of clothes that will help her in this.
