It’s finally happening. We have heard murmurs about it time and again, and finally Randamoozham is starting to take shape. The movie based on the famous book of the same name will be produced by a UAE based businessman. The announcement was made today. Yay! All the fans of Mohanlal are ecstatic about the news that is one of the most talked about topic today. And you will be shocked to know about the budget of the movie. It’s a whopping Rs 1000 crore that will be invested in this epic adventure. WHOA!
Yes, Randamoozham is going to be the most expensive film ever made in India. Finally, we will come at pat with Hollywood movies like Transformers, Planet of the Apes, Avatar, Pirates of the Caribbean. We hope the budget will be used wisely on locations and VFX. Going by the tentative numbers, the Mohanlal starrer has beat SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali. Yep, the making budget of Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer comes no close to the budget that of Randamoozham. Reportedly, the budget of the two parts of Baahubali is Rs 200 crore (The Conclusion) plus Rs 120 crore (The Beginning) approx. Well, even if you add promotional cost and any other expenses the budget won’t exceed Rs 500 crore. So, yea Randamoozham is going to beat Baahubali.
But we have to give it to Baahubali. The success of this very epic adventure has paved way for more expensive cinema to be made in India. Though, at the trailer launch of Baahubali: The Conclusion makres had said that they did not earn enough profit from the first film. So, the makers of Randamoozham should tread cautiously in the this direction. This movie can make or break career.
In a statement issued, B.R. Shetty, producer of the film, said that Randamoozham will be produced in two parts and the shooting will begin next year. He said the first part would be released in 2020 and 90 days later the second part also would be released. The film would be made in English, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Telegu and Kannada besides being dubbed into other Indian and foreign languages and will be directed by V.A. Shrikumara Menon.
