Touted to be a mystery thriller, ‘Nizhal’ features Kunchacko Boban in the role of a first Class Judicial Magistrate John Baby. The film is directed by award-winning editor Appu N Bhattathiri, and a day before the film went on the floors, he exclusively told ETimes that his screenwriter Sanjeev and he has been working on the film for over two years. He shared, “I narrated the story to Kunchacko Boban one and a half years ago. He loved the idea but we wanted a strong female protagonist for the movie. During one of our discussions, Kunchacko Boban suggested Nayanthara’s name.” Although the director shared that Nayanthara is playing a strong role in the film, he stayed tight-lipped about her character.

On the technical front, Deepak D Menon is the lensman and Sooraj S Kurup is in composing the music for the film. Appu N Bhattathiri and Arunlal SP are jointly editing the film and Abhishek S Bhattathiri is the sound designer.
