The first look and the title of Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and director B Unnikrishnan’s next film was revealed on Tuesday evening. Produced by Rockline Venkatesh, the maker of the 2015 Salman Khan blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the film has been titled Villain with a tagline Good Is Bad. Lalettan took to his Facebook page to announce the title and first look of the film.
This is what Mohanlal wrote on his FB page;”Yes, “Good is Bad”. . . Here is the first look poster of my upcoming movie titled “Villain” Directed by B. Unnikrishnan and produced by Rockline Venkatesh”.
Needless to say, the first look is as stylish as Mohanlal’s look in it. The four-time National-award winner looked sporting a salt n pepper look in the poster and his rugged look in the poster has already gone viral across social media networks by raking in more than 17,000 likes and 3600 shares in one hour. Mohanlal portrays the role of an ex-cop in the film. The tagline Good Is Bad in the first look also give us a hint that Villain is not just a typical thriller.
Villain stars Manju Warrier in the female lead. The film also marks the fifth collaboration of Mohanlal-Manju Warrier duo. Villain also marks the Malayalam debut of popular Tamil actors Vishal and Hansika Motwani and Telugu actress Raashi Khanna. The film is reportedly being made for a whopping Rs. 30 crore, which is higher than the budget of Mohanlal’s recent blockbuster Pulimurugan.
Villain also marks the second outing of Oppam composers, Jim Jacob, Biby, Eldhose and Justine of the music band, 4 Musics. The makers had already roped in stunt choreographers Peter Hein and Stunt Silvia for handling the action scenes in the film.
