Thursday, January 1, 1970 • Malayalam Comments

Iyobinte Pusthakam,

Director Amal neerad is known more for his action based films which mostly dealt with the underworld. ‘Big B’, Sagar Alias jackey reloaded’ and ‘Bachelor party’ with its intriguing making style , slow motions and technical finesse have made a lot of fans for the director. But with the new movie on production titled ‘Iyobinte Pusthakam’, Amal Neerad is trying to change his image with a different genre.

 A period thriller, Iyobinte Pusthakam’ will have  Fahadh Faasil, Lal and Jayasurya playing the lead roles. The plot of the film is based on the Biblical story from the Book of Job, and is to be set in the years from 1947 -1957. Supported by an ensemble cast, the movie will portray the story of an ordinary man who faces a lot of family and social problems  during British India.  He tries to hide and overcome them but fails miserably. But a miracle awaits him that is sure to change the course of his life. The film will span the period from 1910 to 1970, though the focus will be on 1940’s which will make up most of the movie narratives. The movie will thus chronicle the socio-political developments of the period.

Lal plays the title role in the film while  Fahadh's character is named Aloshi. Isha Shervani is Fahad’s screen pair and the movie also centres around their love. ‘Iyobinte Pusthakam’ is filmed and co-produced by the director himself, while Fahad Fazil debuts as the producer with the film. The scripts of the movie are handled by Gopan Chithambaran & Syam Pushkaran. Fahad maintains that this is an author backed film for which the script writers has worked for around two years to make it perfect. So a historical/mythical tale inspired from the Book of Job, a chapter in the Old Testament is made in to a period drama with the movie.

The movie will have music by Neha Nair & Yakzan Gary Pereira. Padmapriya , after a short break from Mollywood, makes a comeback playing the role of Rahel, the strong Christian woman, in the film.  Reenu Mathews, Lena, T G Ravi, Sreejith Ravi, Jinu Jose, Chemban Vinod, Vinayan, Saritha Kukku, Anil Murali, and John Vijay will also give life to other prominent characters in the movie. The shooting of the movie were mostly in picturesque locales of Ooty, Munnar and Wagamon.

A big budget flick, ‘Iyobinte Pusthakam’ is expected to become one of the modern age classics from Mollywood. The movie will grace the theatres by this October.
