Geethu Mohandas gets emotional wrapping up Moothon
Director Geetu Mohandas and Nivin Pauly’s ambitious projects Moothon has been wrapped. Geetu Mohandas, whose previous film Liar’s Dice won two National Awards, took to Facebook to thank the team behind Moothon share her experiences of shooting for the film. She shared her soul-stirring post about how she lost her father when she began shooting for the film, and how motivating her mentor Paul Federbush refused to give up on her.
“These past few days have got me reflecting on my journey. It started with submitting the script for the Sundance lab. I chickened out the last minute because my dad was in his last days and I just couldn’t concentrate. It was Acha who eventually sent it for me. I remember it being a half baked script but it was accepted because my mentor Paul Federbush refused to give up on me. A week later Acha left me and with a heavy heart I went to the lab with Moothon. The lab helped me focus to polish my script.”
She also thanked the film’s lead actor Nivin Pauly and said the film would be incomplete without him. She also thanked every crew member on board for their immense contribution to the film.
Touted to be one of the most anticipated films of the year, Moothon will be released in Malayalam and Hindi. The Hindi dialogues of the film has been penned by director Anurag Kashyap. The film was shot in Mumbai and Lakshadweep. Aanand L. Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions is producing it in collaboration with JAR Pictures.
