Mammootty’s historical movie Mamangam releases today. The big-budget film has been directed by M Padmakumar. Prior, Sanjeev Pillai had been roped in to coordinate the element. In any case, because of differed reasons, the activity, at last, fell into Padmakumar’s lap.
“It was done in light of a legitimate concern for the film. No one does it joyfully. It’s anything but a charming activity. We were left with no alternative yet to make that stride. He (Sanjeev) went to courts, and courts maintained that whatever we did was correct, including Kerala High Court. In this way, that has been an undesirable encounter,” Vivek Ramadevan, Executive Producer of Mamangam.
The film is based on the Mamankam celebration. It recounts to the tale of ‘Chavers’ (suicide warriors) who intend to topple the Zamorin ruler. Aside from Mammootty, Mamangam highlights Unni Mukundan, Kaniha, Anu Sithara, Tarun Raj Arora, Prachi Tehlan, Sudev Nair, Suresh Krishna, Manikuttan and Siddique among others.
Prior, while discussing the film with indianexpress.com, Prachi Tehlan had clarified how and why she thinks Mamangam is not quite the same as other chronicled dramatizations.
“Beauty of Mamangam is that it is a genuine film. The Malayalam film industry is content-driven. The movies are shrewdly and perfectly made. Individuals of Kerala are amped up for Mamangam as the story has a place with their history yet being from the North, I might want the whole nation to think about the celebration that was praised for a long time simply like Kumbh Mela in North. In this way, this is an account of overlooked yet truly great individuals. Likewise, the film has been generally shot in genuine areas,” Prachi said.
While the principal photography had begun in February 2018 itself, after a new director was brought in, the filming began again from scratch in January 2019. The film had entered its last leg of shoot in May this year.
Prior, while addressing PTI, Mammootty had stated, “It is a major scene to be recollected and unfortunately very little motion pictures are made on it. Motion pictures are the best medium to educate and tell individuals about history. It is a period film however not legends. It is about the battle between two gatherings and about equity, which ought to be conveyed.”
