Lijo Jose Pellissery’s film Malaikottai Vaaliban
Lijo’s upcoming release is a period drama, titled Malaikottai Vaaliban. It features Mohanlal as the lead, and promises to be a mass entertainer. Going by Lijo’s earlier works, the film seems to be an experimental project - one which showcases Mohanlal in a new avatar.
During a recent interview with Manorama News, Mohanlal spoke about Malaikottai Vaaliban, stating that it is a kind of script that has never been attempted in Malayalam cinema before. Poised for a January 25, 2024 premiere, plans are afoot for a big-scale release. Malaikottai Vaaliban also marks the Malayalam debut of Bollywood actress Sonalee Kulkarni.
