This film is based on the legendary highwayman by the name Kochunni who stayed at Kayakulam, Travancore. A Highwayman is a kind of robber who steals from the rich and distributes it among the poor. The film will explore the important relationships in his life. That’s where Mohanlal will step in as he reportedly will play Ithikkara Pakki, Kochunni’s close aide. The film will reportedly be set in 1850s and 1860s. Nivin Pauly was expected to undergo training for Kalaripayathu for this character. Following this film, there might be another as well. This film is helmed by Rosshan Andrews and is written by Bobby and Sanjay. Priya Anand has stepped in to play Janaki. Amala Paul was to play the role but she had to opt out because of date issues.
