Jayasurya starrer Vellam could be the first Malayalam movie to release at the cinemas, after the lockdown.
Vellam, based on a true story, has been written and directed by G Prajesh Sen.
Prajesh Sen has earlier directed Captain, which had Jayasurya playing the former Indian football captain V P Sathyan. The performance won Jayasurya the Kerala state film award for the best actor.
Josekutty Madathil, Yadu Krishna and Ranjith Manambarakkat are the producers of Vellam. Roby Varghese Raj is the cinematographer and Bijibal is the music director.
Jayasurya’s Sufiyum Sujathayum was the first Malayalam movie to release directly on OTT, during the lockdown period.
