Indrajith's 'Nayakan' has been directed by debutante director Lijo Pellisseri, son of late actor Jose Pellisseri. Lijo, who has been active in the field of ad film making, ventures into fature films with 'Nayakan'.
'Nayakan' is in many ways a very important film for its hero Indrajith, in that it offers him an opportunity to prove his mettle. In the film Indrajith plays a Kathakali artist, who has to wage a battle against a world of crime and injustice. Essentially, the film is a revenge drama that promises to be a breath taking thriller as well.
Indrajith has been steadily moving up his career, by doing roles that have managed to grab attention. Whether it be the moderately successful 'Malabar Wedding' or the runaway hit 'Happy Husbands', the young actor has gradually carved a niche for himself in the industry. What he badly needs though is a solo hit that would Establishment his credentials as a lead actor.
Dhanya Mary Varghese, who was last seen in 'Drona' plays the female lead in the film. Siddiq plays the perfect foil to Indrajith's hero. The supporting cast comprises of Jagathy Sreekumar, Lalu Alex, Thilakan, Vijayaraghavan, Sreejith Ravi, Anil Murali and Kalashala Babu.
The film has been scripted by P S Rafeq, and the music has been composed by Prashanth Pillai. Indrajith has crooned one of the songs in the film.
Shot on locations in Malaysia and Kerala, 'Nayakan' will grace the theatres this summer.
