Prithviraj's look in the film "Ennu Ninte Moideen" as BP Moideen is released. The film is written and directed by RS Vimal. Parvathy Menon plays female lead in the role of Kanchanamala.
Prithviraj is spotted in the look of a typical youngster in 1970s. The actor is seen having long hair, parted sideways and his blue eyes add to the charm of the look.
"Good Morning all, Here is the first glimpse of BP Moidheen on Silver Screen, expecting your valuable support for the movie 'Ennu Ninte Moideen'," posted Prithviraj along with the first-look photo on his Facebook Page.
The film will tell the undying love story of Moideen and Kanchana in the silver screen. It is based on the real-life story of Moideen and Kanchanamala who lived in Mukkam near Kozhikode in Kerala.
Prithviraj will play the role of Moideen and Parvathy Menon will play Kanchana in the film. His last period film was "Celluloid" (2013), in which he embodied the role of JC Daniel. The actor won a lot of accolades for his performance in the film.
Kanchana and Moideen are from well-respected families in Mukkam, but from different communities. They were friends from childhood and fell in love as they grew up. Though their parents were friends, they were against a marriage alliance due to religious differences. All their efforts to be together were in vain. Eventually, forced by the families, they parted their ways.
Disheartened Moideen turned to social work, then became a sports correspondent in Mathrubhumi newspaper and later produced Malayalam films in 70s and 80s. Meanwhile, Kanchana was pushed for marriage alliances by her family, but she stood strong on her decision of not getting married. She even tried to attempt suicide.
Moideen met a tragic end in a boat mishap in river Irivanchippuzha in 1982. Kanchana who is a septuagenarian now is heading 'BP Moideen Seva Mandir' in the memory of her love.
The film also made its news when it became the first Malayalam film to have its complete story board in digital format. The film will also have Lal, Lena and Sreejith Ravi in the lead roles.
The cinematography of the film is handled by Jomon T John and is edited by Mahesh Narayan. The music is composed by Ramesh Narayan and M Jayachandran.
"Ennu Ninte Moideen" is well-supported by highly creative team with art direction done by Sabu Ram, costume by Kumar Edappal and make-up by Ranjith Ambady.
The film is produced by Suresh Raj and Binoy Shankarath under the banner of Newton Movies and is distributed by August Cinema Pvt Ltd.
