In the mystic realms of ancient times, where legends and enchantment danced together, there lived a man of extraordinary tales—Kadamattathu Kathanar. His life, veiled in magic and mystery, is soon to unfold on the silver screen in the upcoming Malayalam extravaganza, Kathanar – The Wild Sorcerer.
Picture this: a visionary director, Rojin Thomas, takes the reins to weave the tapestry of Kathanar’s extraordinary life. Guided by the quill of R. Ramanand, the tale unfolds under the watchful eye of producer Gokulam Gopalan.
Enter the stage, Jayasurya, stepping into the shoes of Kathanar, a Christian priest from the 9th century, whose very existence resonates with magical prowess. Anushka Shetty joins this mystical journey in her Malayalam debut as Kalliyankattu Neeli, adding another layer to this fantastical saga. Vineeth, whose role remains shrouded in secrecy, promises a surprise twist.
The magic doesn’t stop there. Neil D’Cunha, the maestro behind the lens, captures the essence of this period fantasy thriller. Rahul Subramanian Unni, with his musical wand, conjures melodies that echo through the corridors of time.

Virtual production technology paints the canvas of Kathanar’s world, creating a visual symphony that transcends the ordinary.
