ONE - a horror film of international standardsApr 10, 2013
ONE is an upcoming Malayalam feature film directed by debutant Parthan Mohan. The film stars Jagadish, Vishnu Nandan, Devika Nambiar, Vinod Menon, Soumya Sadanandan and Rosin Jolly in pivotal roles. The movie is inspired from a supernatural episode that happened in Scotland in the year 2004.
The film marks the launch of the production house Ministry of Movies and is slated for release in May, 2013.
ONE is the story of a journey that takes a group of friends to a strange place where a supernatural entity lurks, waiting to unleash evil upon its hapless victims. The whole movie spans from a Friday evening till the morning of the following Sunday. The total running time of the movie is 103 minutes which includes a song composed by Aswin Johnson.
ONE is treated in a very realistic manner, drawing upon the strengths of the found footage genre, whilst the footage also includes a third person's point of view. It is visualized in an international styling of horror where the mundane mixes with the supernatural to evoke awe and dread in the minds of the audience. The principal location of the movie has been Manimalakkunnu Palace in Pothencode near Trivandrum.
An interesting aspect of the film will be the absence of prepared dialogues. The actors had been briefed on each scene’s situation and asked to speak impromptu. This was done to ensure that a very realistic styling of dialogue delivery is carried on throughout the movie.
All actors in the movie, for the first time in Malayalam & probably Indian cinema, have acted in roles that bear their original / real-life names and mannerisms.
Arjun Mohan, the producer himself, has penned down the story of ONE and the director has also extended his role as a lyricist.
The team of ONE has taken up the pledge of Going Green. The entire promotion of the movie will be only via Digital & New Media / Traditional Media platforms. No posters will be printed for the movie. The movie will reach out to its audience via social media (Facebook, Twitter and YouTube), Television channels, FM radio channels, Magazines, News-papers, etc.
ONE has marked its presence in social media with an active page – www.facebook.com/OneTheCinema.
