About Kathanar – The Wild Sorcerer Movie:

Kathanar – The Wild Sorcerer is an upcoming Malayalam period fantasy thriller film directed and edited by Rojin Thomas and written by R. Ramanand. It is the first of two cinematic parts. The story traces the life of Kadamattathu Kathanar, a legendary 9th-century Christian priest endowed with magical powers.

The film stars Jayasurya in the title role, along with Anushka Shetty (in her Malayalam debut). It is produced by Gokulam Gopalan of Sree Gokulam Movies.

The film is based on the story of legendary 9th-century Christian priest Kadamattathu Kathanar. The film was initially planned to be produced by Vijay Babu of Friday Film House, with whom Rojin Thomas had previously collaborated in two films. However, in March 2020, it was announced that the project has been taken over by Gokulam Gopalan of Sree Gokulam Movies. It was also reported that the film would be released in two parts and is mounted on a budget of ₹75 crore (approximately $11,000,000). According to Rojin, the film falls under “period fantasy thriller” genre.

Principal photography began on 5 April 2023 in Kochi. It was held at a custom-built studio spanning 45,000 square feet (4,200 m2), utilizing virtual production technology. The first schedule was completed on 2 June 2023 after 43 days. Around 570 personnel worked in various departments.

The first part of Kathanar – The Wild Sorcerer is scheduled to be released in 2024. Alongside the original Malayalam version, the makers are planning to release the film in multiple dubbed languages, including English, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Bengali, Kannada, Chinese, French, Korean, Italian, Russian, Indonesian, and Japanese.
