After a bad start to 2019 with his Mikhael turning out to be a poor performer, Nivin Pauly is looking to turn the tables with his upcoming film Love Action Drama, in which he stars alongside Nayanthara, who makes her way back into the Malayalam film industry after Puthiya Niyamam. The film had gone on floors last year with a good amount of shoot being done already, but it now looks like there have been some major changes in the crew.
Noted cinematographer Jomon T John has replaced Pradeesh Varma, with the team planning to reshoot a lot of portions once again in the near future. The Kerala schedule of the film is currently underway, with plans to move to Chennai by the third week of February. The team plan to complete their shoot by the end of June, with release planned for the Onam weekend on September 5th.
Dhyan Sreenivasan, son of veteran actor-director Sreenivasan, makes his directorial debut with this film produced by comedian Aju Varghese. Said to be a spin-off of Sreenivasan’s 1989 comic drama Vadakkunokkiyanthram, the film features Nivin Pauly as a newlywed suffering from an inferiority complex. The names of the lead characters in Dineshan and Shobha have been retained by Dhyan for the film.
