After "Liar's Dice", actress-director Geethu Mohandas has announced her upcoming movie "Insha' Allah" that will narrate the story of a person named Mullakkoya, who is "in pursuit of Akbar".
"Insha' Allah" is expected to go on floors by September this year in Lakshadweep and Mumbai. As of now, details about the cast and crew of the movie are not available and is said to be released simultaneously in Hindi as well by Jar Pictures.
"I'm proud of you, #GeetuMohandas. Waiting to watch the movie. As your best friend, I want you soar high, bring home more critical acclaim, box office success, awards. Hopes are high as #InshaAllah comes after the acclaimed National Award winner, #LiarsDice," actress Manju Warrier posted on Facebook while sharing the news of Geethu's upcoming directorial venture.
Geethu's previous movie "Liar's Dice" won many accolades and was among India's official entry to the 87th Academy Awards under the Best Foreign Language Film category. The movie also won a special jury award at the 18th Sofia International Film Festival and received two national film awards in the best actress (Geetanjali Thapa) and best cinematography (Rajeev Ravi) categories. "Liar's Dice" is about a young mother who undertakes a journey with her infant daughter and a pet goat from a village in the Himalayas, to find her missing husband.
Geethu has also directed a Malayalam short film named "Kelkunnundo" in 2008. The positive response that "Liar's Dice" received has raised the expectations of Geethu as a director, who began her career as a child artist in Reghunath Paleri's 1986 movie "Onnu Muthal Poojyam Vare" for which she won the Kerala State Film Award for Best Child Artist. Geethu has also acted in movies like "Naalu Pennungal", "Rappakal", "Akale", "Thenkasipattanam" and "Life is Beautiful".
Geethu, who married cinematographer and director Rajeev Ravi in 2009, was last seen in Viji Thampi's film "Nammal Thammil" (2009) with brothers Prithviraj Sukumaran and Indrajith Sukumaran.
