With a host of popular names, this untitled anthology based on acclaimed writer MT Vasudevan Nair’s short stories could be the biggest Malayalam OTT project at least in terms of the star power. With nine segments that are each about 40 minutes long, the anthology series is helmed by filmmakers who haven’t worked on the Nair’s scripts yet. 

Priyadarshan will be directing two featurettes – Shilalikhithangal with Biju Menon in the lead and Olavum Theeravum, which has Mohanlal as the protagonist. Mammootty will be starring in Ranjith’s featurette, which is based on MT Vasudevan’s visit to Kadugannawa in Sri Lanka. Santosh Sivan’s segment has Siddique as the central character, while Mahesh Narayanan and Fahadh Faasil will be teaming up for Sherlock. Rathish Ambat has directed Kadalkattu, which has Indrajith Sukumaran, Ann Augustine and Aparna Balamurali. 

Asif Ali and Madhoo will be seen in Ashwathy Vasudevan Nair’s segment, which is based on the short story, Vilpana, while Indrans, Surabhi Lakshmi, Renji Panicker and Nedumudi Venu are part of Jayaraj’s episode, Swargam Thurakunna Samayam.
