The movie, which is a family entertainer, also has Veena Nandakumar as part of the cast
After their hit collaborations Punjabi House, Thenkasipattanam and Two Countries, Dileep and Raffi will be teaming up again in Voice of Sathyanathan, which also has Joju George and Veena Nandakumar in pivotal roles.
Talking to OTTplay, the movie’s director and scriptwriter Raffi tells us, “We are teaming up after six years for this movie, which is set in a village. Dileep’s character Sathyanathan runs an old furniture shop. He is a people pleaser, who flatters people and doesn’t often speak the truth. He only says things that others are happy to hear.”
Joju George plays another pivotal character in the movie, which has Kettyolaanu Ente Malakha actress Veena Nandakumar as its heroine.
Ask Raffi if it’s a full-length comedy entertainer and he says, “This actually has a serious subject. While it is laced with humour elements, it’s not a full-length comedy. But it can be slotted as a family entertainer.”
The shoot of the movie is scheduled to begin in Ernakulam. “We will also be shooting in Palakkad, Mumbai and Delhi in the later schedules,” reveals the director, adding that the team is finalising the rest of the cast.
Voice of Sathyanathan has music by Joji composer Justin Varghese and will be edited by Shameer Mohammed. Dileep and Badusha NM will be co-producing the movie with Shinoy Mathew and Prijin JP.
Dileep, meanwhile, has also finished shooting for Nadhirsha’s Kesu Ee Veedinte Nathan, in which he will be seen as a 68-year-old. The movie also has Urvashi, Anusree, Swasika and Harisree Ashokan.
