      Cool NIZHAL ¦¦ KUNCHACKO BOBAN ¦¦ NAYANTHARA ¦¦ APPU N BHATTATHIRI

      Nayanthara and Kunchacko Boban team up for a thriller



      After Love Action Drama, Nayanthara has signed her next Malayalam movie that will have her teaming up with Kunchacko Boban. The thriller, which will mark the debut directorial of State Award-winning editor Appu N Bhattathiri, is set to go on floors on Monday in Ernakulam.
      Kunchacko and Nayanthara had earlier shared screen space 12 years ago for a song sequence. “After that song in Twenty-20, it’s a coincidence we are acting together again in the year 2020,” says Kunchacko.



      Ask him if the project was greenlit because of the pandemic and the actor says, “I had heard the narration a long time ago and had committed to the film. But it has a strong female character and they were in search of someone to play the role. That’s when I suggested Nayanthara’s name. I also had another motive then; I knew it would take a few months for the project to take off because of its content and the task of convincing her to be part of it would take some time. But because of the pandemic some of my projects were pushed to later dates and also Nayanthara loved the script. We decided to go ahead with this now, since she gave her go ahead.”

      On whether the makers had to make changes to shoot the film during the pandemic, Kunchacko says, “It’s not a pandemic-oriented project per se but it’s a movie that can be shot in a controlled environment. There are a lot of location shifts but we can film it under restrictions because there aren’t many actors. Most of the movie will be filmed in Ernakulam and with just two days of shoot planned outside Kerala.” The cast, he says, will only have a few noted actors while a child artiste will also play a pivotal role.



      A source from the production team tells us that Nayanthara also decided to take a pay cut to be part of the project. Ask Kunchacko if he too had to make such sacrifices and the actor says, “For me, there’s only gain – to work during the pandemic and be part of such a good project, which also have a lot of great talents, including Theevandi director Fellini TP who is involved in its creative side.”


      Further on the movie, scripted by debutant Sanjeev, the actor says, “Even though it’s a thriller, we believe this movie delves into a hitherto unexplored terrain. After Anjaam Pathiraa, it’s a movie in this genre that really got me excited.”

      Appu N Bhattathiri on directing ‘Nizhal’ with Nayanthara and Kunchacko Boban



      The film, a mystery-thriller, marks the directorial début of the State award-winning editor

      Nayanthara teaming up with Kunchacko Boban is the big news from Mollywood. The movie, titled Nizhal, marks the directorial début of State award-winning editor, Appu N Bhattathiri. Before the film went on floors on Monday (October 19) at Kalamassery near Kochi, Appu talked to MetroPlus about the project and fulfilling his dream of turning director.

      Nizhal is a mystery thriller. That’s all I can say as of now,” says Appu, adding that casting Nayanthara was not in the scheme of things when they had started the project. “The film has powerful male and female leads. Chackochan [Kunchacko Boban] was finalised for his role at the beginning itself. It was he who suggested having Nayanthara on board. That thought had never crossed our mind because it didn’t seem to be a possibility. The role indeed required someone like her, thanks to the connect she has made with the audience through her multiple strong characters,” says Appu. Nayantara’s last release in Malayalam was Dhyan Sreenivasan’s Love Action Drama, opposite Nivin Pauly.
      Appu has been nurturing dreams of becoming a filmmaker for many years now. “Initially, I wanted to become a cinematographer. But, after a point, direction enthused me. However, I was forced to take up editing,” he laughs. While pursuing his graduation in digital media in Chennai, he would edit short films made by his friends. Even after finishing his course, he continued to do it as it became a source of income. He worked in numerous short films, most of them directed by his friends, and also directed a few shorts.
      The 31-year-old from Thiruvananthapuram started his career as an assistant director in Second Show (2012), the launch vehicle of Dulquer Salmaan, and debuted as an editor in Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s Oraalppokkam (2014). He won the Kerala State Film Award for Best Editor (2017) for Ottamurivelicham and Veeram and has also worked in three other state-award-winning films.
      “Even though I badly wanted to switch over to direction all these years I couldn’t do that. In fact, I set out three times to direct a movie but the projects didn’t materialise. Maybe, I am lucky for the fourth time now,” he says.
      Talking about the genre, Appu says that he has always been a huge fan of thrillers. “I have edited very few such scenes in the films I have worked. Compared to Tamil and Hindi, there aren’t many gripping thrillers in Malayalam. So I always wanted to bring that in my film,” he says, making special reference to David Fincher’s movies such as SE7EN and Zodiac.
      As for the COVID-19 restrictions in place on the shooting location, Appu says that the team plans to take advantage of the controlled environment. “The project was conceptualised two years ago and we rolled it out now because everything fell into place. We are confident of pulling it off within the limitations because the movie has several scenes that need such a milieu,” he says.
      Talking about the crew, he points out that it is among the many projects he had finalised with the film’s writer and scenarist, Sanjeev S. Although they had finalised three scripts earlier, the films didn’t materialise. The soundscape will be a highlight. “There are certain aspects in the movie that has to be heard as well,” he adds. Appu’s cousin, Abhishek S Bhattathiri, a supervising sound editor in many Bollywood films, is making his debut in Malayalam as a sound designer with Nizhal.
      Appu is also editing the film with Arunlal SP, his classmate. “Having edited several projects, I tend to become mechanical and visualise the end product even when the shoot is on. So it was important to have another point of view. Arun has been into visual effects and he will definitely bring something fresh to the editing table since he is new to this,” Appu says.
      Appu says that it is too early to talk about how to screen the film. “Like all début directors, I also look forward for a theatrical release,” he avers. Before signing off, he adds: “There are certain things I want to do in Nizhal, which haven’t been attempted before. Cinema has been going through a lot of changes and audiences are open to that. Besides content, there is a possibility of experimenting with the making as well.”
