The teaser of the upcoming Malayalam film "Homely Meals" is released and has managed to increase the curiosity regarding the film. The teaser gives an indication that it is ultimately about films and film lovers.
The teaser begins with the line "With love, respect and courtesy to every artist in Malayalam cinema." It then heads to a series of cut shots from various Malayalam films, where the actors say, "Onnu Kananam", which means "want to watch".
The first part of the teaser introduces evergreen actors like Prem Nazir, Jayan, Soman, Thilakan, Mukhesh, KPAC Lalitha, Ummer, Mammootty and Mohanlal.
The trailer then moves on saying "Here comes 'Homely Meals' for everyone to watch". The second half of the teaser gives an insight to what the audience can expect from the film and is done using the cut shots of dialogues by various actors like Ummer, Jayan, Janardhanan, Jagathy Sreekumar, Prem Nazir, Adoor Bhasi and Sathyan.
"Homely Meals" is directed by Anoop Kannan of "Jawan of Vellimala" (2012) fame. The Mammootty starrer, however, opened to poor reviews and failed to make a mark in the box office. Unlike Anoop's first film, "Homely Meals" will see debutant Vipin Atley in the lead role Allen, who has a great passion towards cinema. Interestingly, the film is said to have almost fifty new comers.
"The film shows the characters in real life. I have chosen those actors who suites the characters well, therefore, stardom doesn't become a criteria here. Everything about the film is fresh but the same time, details are very natural," said Anoop Kannan to Mathrubhumi.
The film is set as an Onam release and has Srindha Ashab, Manoj K. Jayan, Nedumudi Venu, Kailash, Sudheer Karamana, Joju, Neeraj Madhav and Sijoy Varghese in pivotal roles.
The screenplay of "Homely Meals" is done by Vipin and the cinematography is handled by Georgy Joseph. The film is produced by Hussain and Illias Zakkariya under the banner of Recaro Pictures.
