Fahad Fazil turns a Lensman for Maheshinte Prathikaram

Actor Fahad Fazil turns a Lensman for the upcoming Mollywood flick Maheshinte Prathikaram. The actor will be seen first time in the attire of a photographer character. The movie is directed by debutante Dileesh Pothan. Dileesh is familiar face to Mollywood audience through his appearance in the Aashiq Abu flick Salt n’ Pepper as a filmmaker character. Mahehinte Prathikaram is produced by Aashiq Abu under the banner OPM Dream Mill Cinemas.

The movie is said to have a romantic thriller. It revolves around Mahesh, played by Fahad, and the small studio run by him in Idukki. He clicks photographs for weddings and other functions in the village and lives a humble living. But, an unexpected incident during one of his photography assignments catapulted his common man life style into some unknown terrains. As his existence as a photographer and a human being is challenged, the plot thickens. How he managed to escape from the problems constitutes the rest of the story. The movie focuses on the concept of love and revenge.

Dileesh Pothen is a popular name in Mollywood for last 12 years because of his screenplays. He also tried his acting talent in movies like Salt n’ Pepper and Gangster. This is the second collaboration between Fahad and producer Aashiq Abu. They have earlier worked together in 22 Female Kottayam in 2012, which went on to become a landmark film both in Mollywood and the duo’s filmography.

Syam Pushkaran pens the script for Dileesh. Syam is well known for his scripts, including Salt n’ Pepper, 22 Female Kottayam, Da Thadiya, 5 Sundarikal, Idukki Gold, Un Samayal Arayil, and Oggarane. The movie will be edited by Saiju Sreedharan and the music department will be helmed by Bijibal. While the cinematography is handled by Shaiju Khalid and the art direction by Ajayan Chalissery, the costumes will be designed by Sameera Saneesh.

Even though the makers keep a blanket over the details of the movie, reports suggest that Anusree and Premam fame Anupama Parameswaran are roped in to play the female leads. Fahad Fazil is crossing his fingers for this one because his last release Ayal Njanalla was hailed by the critics; but failed to make an impact at the box office. Maheshinte Prathikaram is lined up to release for Christmas.
