With Mohanlal releasing the first look poster of the Major Ravi film ‘1971: Beyond Borders’, a day back, there have been discussions galore as to whether the film would mark the comeback of its director Major Ravi. Ravi has been on a walk downhill, what with his recent films like ‘Picket 43’ and ‘Karma Yodha’ not rising up to the expected mark.The poster of ‘1971’ tells a different story, though. It has Major Mahadevan making a reappearance as Colone l Mahadevan, and it has also been rumoured that he would appear in yet another role – that of his father, Major Sahadevan!
Based on the Indo-Pak war of 1971, the poster has Major Mahadevan on the battle field. The shoot that has taken place at Suratgarh, Arjungarh, Junagarh, Georgia, and a few locations in Kerala, has been captured on camera by Sujith Vasudev. The film will feature four songs composed by three music directors—Najim Arshad, Siddharth Vipin, and Rahul Subramanian. The film score will be composed by Gopi Sunder.
Will the Mahadevan brand work again this time? Time to wait and watch!
