Mammootty is going to take the centre stage of Ranjith’s mass movie, which is reportedly titled as ‘Vamban’. It appears that Mammootty is slowly coming back to the old golden era where he one ruled the box office. This Mammooty – Ranjith movie will start rolling in November.
The combination of Mammootty and the director Ranjith has given unforgetful movies to the Malayalam movie lovers. Pranchiyettan and the Saint, Paleri Manikyam : Oru Paathira Kolapathakam, Kaiyopp etc. One of the best mass movie of Mammootty’s career, Valliettan is scripted by Ranjith himself.
Ranjith is a man known primarily for his mass movies. It was Ranjith who had penned some of the finest feudal and crowd pulling mass entertainers like Narasimham, Aaramthamburan, Ravanaprabhu, Devasuram etc. When the man is returning back to his favorite arena, there’s much to hope for.
Recently Ranjith was keeping him away from such movies. His last movie, Loham could have been easily a blockbuster in his career. But he had made it sure that it will not fall into the genre of ‘mass entertainer’, thus preventing the movie to fly to new heights. This was the main complaint people had after watching Loham.
Now that Ranjith has announced ‘Vamban’ to be a mass flick. Let us hope that he won’t try to make the changes he did to Loham. Mammootty’s last celebrated mass movie was ‘Kasaba’. Though the movie received very good first day initial, it failed to keep up in the coming days.
Mammootty’s recent release Thoppil Joppan is heading towards great box office success. Mammootty is now busy with the shooting of ‘The Great Father’. The movie is directed by Haneef Adeni and produced by August Cinemas. Mammootty will be joining the sets of Ranjith’s ‘Vamban’ once he wraps up his scenes in ‘The Great Father’.
