Ajay Vasudev's direction

Ajay Vasudev made his debut through Rajadiraja and followed it up with Masterpiece. Gopi Sunder has composed the music for this movie. The bar song 'Kanne Kanne' has already been in the hit chart.

From Bellari Raja to Boss

From a cattle dealer in Rajamankyam to the money lender in Shylock, one thing that has not changed in Mammootty is his mindblowing energy level and screen presence. His role as Bellary raja had shut the mouth of critics who were reluctant to appreciate his ability in doing comedy. Shylock also assures the audience that the movie will have all the ingredients of a mass entertainer.
