The official motion poster of Mohanlal’s upcoming film Odiyan was revealed on Monday, July 3 morning. The film which is a fantasy thriller marks the directorial debut of ad filmmaker VA Shrikumar Menon, the maker of Mohanlal’s ambitious Rs 1000 crore project, Randamoozham: The Mahabharata. Odiyan stars Manju Warrior in the female lead who’s collaborated with Lalettan in Aaram Thampuran, Kanmadham, Summer In Bethlahem, Ennum Eppozhum and soon-to-be-released Villain.
After creating a record within one-hour of its release, the motion poster of Odiyan has set an all India record within 2-days. The motion poster of the Mohanlal starrer has clocked a massive 4 million views in just 46 hours to emerge as the fastest Indian film motion poster on social media. The 54-second long motion poster has also shattered the records set by Mahesh Babu’s SPYder, SS Rajamouli blockbuster Baahubali 2 and JR NTR’s Jai Lava Kusa to do so.
The motion poster features Mohanlal in an altogether different avatar as he can be seen in a clean-shaven look with a different hairstyle. It won’t be wrong to mention that the Malayalam superstar seems completely unrecognizable in the new stunning makeover as shown in the motion poster.
Mohanlal will be seen portraying the titular role of Odiyan Manikkan in the film. The film is said to have many action sequences, choreographed by the national award winning stunt master Peter Hein. It also marks the fourth collaboration between Tamil actor Prakash Raj and Mohanlal after Tamil film Iruvar and Malayalam films The Prince and Oru Yathramozhi.
