December 2 is a very special day for Malayalam. The biggest big budget Malayalam movie ‘Marakkar Arabikadalin Simham’ is getting ready for release. There is a lot of hard work, suffering and waiting behind this movie. The film has been made on a budget of one billion. The film is directed by Priyadarshan and stars actor Mohanlal in the title role. A handful of South Indian artists have been a part of the film. The movie is being released at a cost of crores including VFX. Marakkar is the lion of the Arabian Sea.
Though the release of the film was decided several times, the film was later delayed due to the crisis faced by Kovid and Lockdown. When there was a crisis over whether a theatrical release would be possible, even the OTD release was considered for the film. It was later decided to release it in cinemas with the intervention of ministers and others. Now, actor Mohanlal has shared his expectations about the film. In an interview to Manorama, Mohanlal spoke openly about the features of Marakkar movie. Marakkar Arabian Sea Sim is a national award winning film. Most of the film was shot at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad. The team led by Art Director Sabu Cyril produced a huge set for the film. Mohanlal said that the climax of Marakkar is very special and Marakkar is the dream of himself and director Priyadarshan.

When asked if Kunhali had a resemblance to that historical man when he introduced Maraikkars, Mohanlal replied: ‘This is a million dollar question. Of course it may have happened. As an actor I can say that when I saw that movie …. I felt it at its climax. You will understand it when you watch that movie. That is why I believe that the climax of the film is special, ‘said Mohanlal. ‘The film, which is expected to be completed in two years, was shot in 110 days. Kunjalimarakkar is the dream of me and Priyadarshan. Marakkar will definitely be a project that Malayalam and Indian cinema can be proud of. If Bahubali’s making was analogous to Amarchitra’s stories, Marakkar’s approach was realistic. Shooting in the water is the most difficult. VFX was acquired by a UK-based company. The time to do VFX was said to be a year after the film was shot. This was preceded by a film called Thugs of Hindustan. I do not compare with other films. That was a lesson for us. I have tried my best for perfection ‘, said Mohanlal.
