Mamangam: History of the Brave, a film starring Mammootty, tells a story from God’s own country, Kerala. The Malayalam film, that promises to be a visual extravaganza, will be dubbed and released in Hindi. Besides Hindi, viewers can also view the film in Tamil and Telugu. This is an effort to ensure a wider reach.
The audience got a glimpse of what’s in store for them when the teaser launched today.
This M Padmakumar directorial showcases Mammootty as a mysterious character and in a never-seen-before avatar. The period film will portray a distinct tale and also showcase Kalari. Kalari is considered as one of the oldest martial art forms in the world.
“Ours is a diverse country, and languages divide us. History of one part of the country shouldn’t be unknown to others due to the language barrier. I feel cinema is one medium that can break these barriersand connect us.”
Producer Venu Kunnapilly said,
“We have picked up a true story, which took place in 1695, about the legendary Chavers (suicide fighters), who went to kill the Zamorin (the hereditary monarch) during Mamangam. We have created a visually-empowering cinematic experience for everyone. Mammootty hasn’t been seen in something like this ever before; also, we have a 12-year-old playing a character from history and doing fantastic action.”
Kavya Film Company presents Mamangam, a M Padmakumar directorial and Venu Kunnappilly production. Starring Padma Shri Mammootty slated to release on 21st November.
