It was announced earlier that Mammootty and Parvathy Thiruvothu will team up for Puzhu, to be directed by debutant Ratheena. On Tuesday, the project went on floors as the day marked the auspicious first month of the Malayalam calendar. A few stills from the set were released by the crew after they wrapped up the official ceremony of the film's launch. Unsurprisingly, the megastar, who looked suave in a vibrant outfit, was the centre of attraction at the event. The movie's crew members, including Ratheena, were present at the event, while Parvathy wasn't spotted. Mammootty took to his Twitter account to express happiness for being part of the project which just took off and posted a few pictures along with the tweet, #Puzhu starts Rolling Today."  

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Puzhu's composer Jakes Bejoy had revealed that the actor will play a character similar to what he had essayed in the critically-acclaimed film, Vidheyan, directed by Adoor Gopalakrishnan. Mollywood film lovers are eagerly waiting to know if the actor is essaying a character with grey shade in the movie. The composer will also be working on Mammootty's CBI 5, which will bring together the successful combination of director Madhu and screenwriter SN Swamy. Theni Eswar, who earlier cranked the camera for the actor's comeback film in Tamil, Peranbu, has been roped in as the cinematographer for Puzhu. Harshad, Sarfu and Suhas, who made their Tamil debut with Dhanush-starrer Maaran, are the screenwriters for the project, which will be presented by Dulquer's Wayfarer Films Release.  

Mammootty, who has a few days' portions left to complete Amal Neerad's gangster flick, Bheeshma Parvam, had two releases, The Priest and One earlier this year, before theatres were shut down in Kerala owing to the second wave of the pandemic.
