About Lalitham Sundaram
When his directorial debut, Lalitham Sundaram, releases on March 18, it will be a dream-come-true moment for actor Madhu Wariar. “I always wanted to do this. Acting was more like a stepping stone to becoming a director,” says Madhu, elder brother of actor Manju Warrier. The film with Manju and Biju Menon in the lead will stream on Disney+ Hotstar.
The film is “a feel-good family drama”, says Madhu. He does not reveal anything about the characters played by Biju and Manju. “The film stresses the importance of family in our lives. We often take that institution for granted and expect the family members to be around whenever we need them. The dynamics within this set-up are i explored in the film,” he says. It is written by Pramod Mohan, director and scenarist of Orayiram Kinakkalaal.
