Nivin has completed shooting for his upcoming period drama Kayamkulam Kochunni, which is now in the post-production stage. The first full theatrical trailer of the film was released recently ramping up the expectations around the big-ticket film.
Set in the 19th century, the film will narrate the story of legendary real-life thief Kayamkulam Kochunni. He was known for stealing from the haves and giving it to the have-nots. The film will narrate Kochunni’s Robin Hood-like adventures and focus on other details in his life that inspired him to do things he did.
The film has a star-studded cast including superstar Mohanlal. Lalettan is said to be playing the role of Kochunni’s mentor.
Helmed by Rosshan Andrrews, the film has Priya Anand as the female lead, while Priyanka Thimmesh, Babu Antony and Sunny Wayne among others play key roles.
Kayamkulam Kochunni is expected to arrive in cinemas during Onam this year.
