The movie, which is set against a coastal backdrop, is directed by Leo Thaddeus and also has Shine Tom Chacko
Director Leo Thaddeus began the shoot of his next multi-starrer titled Panthrand today in Pallippuram, Kerala. The switch-on function of the movie, which has Dev Mohan, Vinayakan, Shine Tom Chacko and Lal in lead roles, was done by veteran director Sibi Malayil.
Apart from the four male leads, the movie also has Srinda, Veena Nair, Sohan Seenulal, Prashant Murali and Vettukili Prakash as part of the cast. In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Leo had told us, “It’s a movie that has gangsters, but it’s not a typical gangster film. It’s more of a musical-thriller. The film is set against a coastal backdrop and revolves around the goons there. What happens when an oud player comes into their lives forms the crux of the story.”
Dev Mohan plays the oud player in the movie while Vinayakan plays a gangster. “Shine Tom Chacko essays Vinayakan’s brother in the film, which has Lal essaying a politician.” The movie’s music is by Alphons Joseph.
The team had shot for a few days but has temporarily halted it due to the pandemic situation in Kerala. Dev Mohan, meanwhile, wrapped up shooting for his Telugu debut Shaakuntalam and was also seen in a special appearance in #Home, which is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
After wrapping up the shoot of Shaakuntalam, Dev had shared a message to his co-star Samantha Akkineni on his social media page. “It was an amazing experience with you.. I should say your support during the shoot was remarkable and that really helped me to lift my character.. Lots of love,” he wrote.
