Madhan Karky has pioneered in all essence of writing when it comes to lyrical aspects. Of course, he wasn’t just convinced to settle with penning poetic lines, but upgraded this panorama with ‘Lyric Engineering ‘. Following this first of its kind spearheading in the industry, he carved a niche of excellence with his dialogues. Yet again, if penning dialogues for a direct and fresh script might demand a herculean task, how about taking up dubbed versions. In this prospect, this lyrical icon made a remarkable feat of excellence penning dialogues for ‘Baahubali’ franchise followed by the latest classical hit ‘Nadigaiyar Thilagam’. With such phenomenal accomplishments, Madhan Karky has become the ‘Gateway’ for epical movies from other regional industries to find it adaption through his versatile writing.
Madhan Karky has now embarked on a mighty act of penning dialogues for Nivin Pauly’s magnum opus Malayalam movie ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’. Set against the backdrops of 1800, the film revolves around a Robin Hood like figure. Sharing some interesting updates, “Although, the film is set against the ancient backdrops, the central character is a commoner. So we have decided to maintain unique lines, which are not too old or completely contemporary. There is a huge responsibility to make sure that the Tamil audiences don’t feel as though watching a dubbed movie.”
Madhan Karky, who is penning lyrical lines apart from dialogues for this film directed by Roshan Andrews says that they’ve have considered ‘Malaikallan’ as the tentative title for the movie. Nevertheless, it would be finalized only if the team manages to get the rights or else a new title would be zeroed in.
Apart from Nivin Pauly, the film has Priya Anand, Priyanka Thimmesh, Sunny Wane, Babu Antony and many more prominent actors. Mohanlal will be seen playing a special cameo in this film, which is an additional attraction.
