‘Bachelor Party’ the new film by Amal Neerad will have him handling three roles, as producer, director and cinematographer. The film will star Asif Ali, Indrajith, Nithya Menon and Remya Nambeeshan in lead roles. This is the first time Amal is producing and he has plans to produce films with other directors like Anwar Rasheed and Aashiq Abu as well in future under the banner Amal Neerad Productions.
Amal Neerad is the director and cinematographer who made us aware that Malayalam films also can be technically brilliant, within the limitations of our budget. Having worked Mammootty in ‘Black’ as cinematographer, Amal then directed him in ‘Big B’, which is arguably the most stylish film ever made in Malayalam. In the mean time Amal also worked with Ram Gopal Varma in three Hindi films. Amal became a brand name, with his films having huge fan following. Even though he had top actors that ensured a good initial, people flocked into theaters also for the visual treat he offered through his movies. So even though ‘Bachelor Party’ doesn’t have any big names, it is still the talk of the town.
There are rumors going around that says ‘Bachelor Party’ is lifted from ‘Hangover’, a hit Hollywood film. But Amal have rubbished these rumors and asked people not to spread such false news. He has been accused of borrowing ideas from Hollywood for most of his previous film and in Hollywood at least one film releases every year with its theme based around a bachelor party. But the truth is he has never tried to hide this fact.
Santhosh Echikkanam and Unni R are penning the script of this movie which also stars Rahman, Baburaj, Kalabhavan Mani, Jagathy, Sampath and Ashish Vidyarthi. Rahul Raj is the music director. Rahul is still basking in the glory of his first outing in Telugu ‘Oh My Friend’ with Siddharth and Sruthi Hassan.
Meanwhile Amal’s previously announced film ‘Arival Chuttika Nakshatram’ with Mammootty in the lead and Prithviraj as the antagonist has been postponed and will only start after ‘Bachelor Party’, which will start by January.
