Mollywood actor Shane Nigam has signed a long list of exciting projects and the latest in the list is Parakramam, which is scripted and directed by debutant Arjun Ramesh.   

Talking to OTTplay about the movie, the title poster of which was revealed by Prithviraj Sukumaran recently, Arjun says, “It’s about the mischiefs and shenanigans of a youngster in his 20s. Contrary to its title, it’s not a violent film; in fact, Parakramam is a feel-good movie and has Shane playing the central character named Visakh Sukumaran.”

The makers are also planning to reveal the rest of the cast soon. “I am in talks with a few people. There are a couple of interesting characters in the movie,” says Arjun.

Further on the setting of the movie, the director says, “The film is set in central Kerala. I have observed and understood the people there. Also, the people in Alappuzha have a neutral accent and hence, like in yesteryear movies, you won’t be able to figure out the place where the story is set based on the Malayalam spoken.”

On when the movie will go on floors, he explains, “There are a few movies pending right now. We can go ahead and shoot our movie, and release it on OTT platforms. But most of the people involved in the project believe this is a movie that should be watched in theatres. So, we will wait and then take a call on how the pandemic situation evolves.”

The movie's crew includes cinematographer Alex J Pulickal, editor Kiran Das, composer Pratik C Abhyankar and art director Prasanth Madhav. Shabareesh Varma will be writing the lyrics for the movie, which has Harris Desom as the line producer. 

Meanwhile, Shane had earlier this year begun the shoot for TK Rajeevkumar’s Bermuda, which also has Vinay Forrt. Shane is also part of Veyil, Ullasam, Qurbani and Qalb – all of which are awaiting release.
