Priyadarshan hasn’t been having a great time of late in Hindi Cinema with his last successful film being De Dana Dan, way back in 2009. In between he made a comeback to Malayalam Cinema with Arabeem Ottakom P.Madhavan Nairum in Oru Marubhoomikadha. Though not in the range of some of his earlier films, the audience still lapped it up thanks to the Mohanlal–Mukesh pairing, bringing in the nostalgic factor. So it’s nice to see Priyan back with a Malayalam movie, Geethanjali. Manichitrathazhu is a landmark film in the history of Malayalam cinema. Geethanjali sees Mohanlal reprising the character of Dr.Sunny Joseph as seen in Manichitrathazhu. Though not meant as a direct sequel, Geethanjali is being projected as one another episode in the life of Dr.Sunny Joseph. Along with Mohanlal we have Innocent and Ganesh Kumar reprising their roles from Manichitrathazhu here. The rest of the star cast includes Madhu, Siddique, Nassar, Nishan Nanaiah and also Suresh Gopi and Shobana in a cameo.
Geethanjali sees writer Dennis Joseph and Priyadarshan coming back together after Cheppu (1987). The music is by Vidyasagar while S.Tirru is the DOP and editing is by T.S.Suresh. Geethanjali is due for release soon. Check out the trailer now.
