Mohanlal-Priyadarshan’s ‘Geethanjali’ started shooting in Trivandrum

Trivandrum was also the location of the duo’s first film, Thiranottam which was produced by Suresh Kumar.

The shooting of the much awaited Malayalam movie ‘Geethanjali ‘ has started in Trivandrum. Mohanlal has joined Priyadarshan and other actors at the highly secured shooting location at the Pothencode Palace in Trivandrum.

For Mohanlal and Priyadarshan ‘Geethanjali ‘ is more than a film. It is a reunion of old friends who once dreamed together about cinema. Mohanlal, at that time was a student of MG College and Priyadarsan a student of University College. The circle includes M.G Sreekumar, Suresh Kumar, Ashok Kumar and Maniyan Pilla Raju. Their discussion about films and cricket usually took place at the Indian Coffe House in Trivandrum.  Incidentally, Trivandrum was also the location of the duo’s first film, Thiranottam which was produced by Suresh Kumar. The unreleased movie also starred Manianpilla Raju. Now Geethanjali paved an opportunity for the gang to get together again at their hometown.

Mohanlal is back in his hometown after a long gap. His last shooting in Trivandrum was for “Oru Naal Varum” in 2010. Mohanlal and Priyadarshan, one of the most successful actor- director teams gave over 40 films together.

Geethanjali is the spin-off version of Fazil’s 1993 box-office hit Manichitrathazhu. Mohanlal will reprise the much acclaimed character – Dr Sunny. It is reported that Shobana who had played Ganga in  ‘Manichithrathaazhu’ will play a guest role in this movie. The film will also have returning cast members Innocent and KB Ganesh Kumar apart from new additions Madhu, Siddique and Harisree Asokan. New comer Keerthi and Nishan are the other important characters in the film.

The movie is written by veteran Dennis Joseph and background score is by Ilayaraaja. Vidyasagar will compose music for the lyrics of ONV Kurup. Geethanjali is produced by GP Vijayakumar under the banner of Seven Arts Productions.
