Three time National Award winner South Indian superstar Mammootty, who has done over 300 films, is working on the biggest film of his career. The project is based on a festival called Mamangam, where the actor will be seen playing a mysterious character with multiple looks.

Mamangam was a religious festival which was held once in 12 years at Thirunavaya, on the banks of Bharatapuzha in Kerala. For 280 years fierce battles were waged by a few men against a mighty king during Mamangam. The film will showcase a story of one great real hero and one glorious unknown hero. This is the first Malaylalam film to be released in four languages — Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.

The makers released the first look of Mammootty, in the film, which will have a wide action sequence of Kalaripayattu, one of the oldest martial art forms. The action sequences are choreographed by Sham Kaushal. “This movie is one of the biggest and one of the most expensive movies made in Malayalam cinema and is set in the 1695,” says a source close to the film.  

The movie also stars Achutan, Sudev Nair, Sidhique, Unnimukundan, Sureshkrishna and Manikkuttan. Mamangam is directed by M Padmakumar and is produced by Venu Kunnappilly of Kavya Films. The film is slated to release in the last quarter of 2019.
