Vinayan is considered to be one of the most ambitious directors in the South Film Industry. With movies like Athisayan, he has attempted to take Malayalam movies to the next level. Recently, the director announced, via his instagram handle, that his latest movie, Pathombatham Noottandu is in the editing phase but the climax scene has not been shot yet due to the ongoing Covid19 pandemic.

Pathombatham Noottandu is an action-oriented epic period film that will narrate the story of an adventurous warrior that lived in Thiruvithamkoor about 175 years ago. Posting another location still from the filming on his instagram, director Vinayan has also said that with the film, he will try to depict the life and culture of commoners in the era most accurately and authentically. The director has also confirmed that about one month of shooting is still left to complete the filming of Pathombatham Noottandu. So, we can expect a great period film from the Malayalam industry in the near future.
