"Oppam" will be released on Sept. 8. Mohanlal back in rocking performances with last 2 Telugu movies named “Manamantha” and the 100+ Cr box office biggie “Janatha Garage”. For the first time in his acting career spanning 36 years, Mohanlal will be seen playing the role of a blind man throughout a film. The versatile actor has earlier played a visually challenged man for a short time in director Rajiv Anchal's Malayalam movie, "Guru," which was selected as India's official entry to the Best Foreign Film category at the 70th Oscars.
Awesomely this would be making all you eager to watch the movie. And in another side, Priyadarshan is known for his movies in the comedy genre, although his outings with thrillers have been accepted by the audience in the films, "No.20 Madras Mail" and "Nirnayam," among others. Though his movies over the past few years have failed to make a mark at the box office, the upcoming Mohanlal-starrer, said to be a crime thriller, is likely to bring back the good old feeling. And certainly the major highlight of "Oppam" is the association of Mohanlal and Priyadarshan, who have delivered many superhits movies in Malayalam. Their previous outing "Geethanjali" had turned out to be a disaster at the box office.
The one-minute 46-second trailer of the thriller, edited by "Premam" director Alphonse Puthren, has opened to a positive response from viewers, who have tagged it as thrilling. It has become one of the most viewed trailers, with more than 1 million views on the YouTube page of Aashirvad Cinemas. So lets push the seat and watch the movie….in theater from Sept. 8 onwards…..
