Jayasurya-Starrer Malayalam Film, Kathanar Brings Technology Never Used Before In Indian Cinema
Malayalam cinema is going from strength to strength. The ambitious upcoming Kathanar, which features the astonishing Jayasurya, riding high on the accolades of Amazon Prime Video’s Sunny, is a film using Virtual production technology aided by sophisticated workflows like Tech-Viz, Stunt-Viz and Post-Viz has begun.

Asset-creation processes like full body 3D scans using a 200DSLR camera photogrammetry rig and Vicon based infra-red biped motion capture have already been initiated. Hollywood films, Jungle Book and Lion King were the pioneers in using this technology before Kathanar.

Jayasurya says, “We are grateful to have an opportunity to bring these technologies used in international cinema to Malayalam cinema through Kathanar. It will be a global cinema that will integrate the technocrats in our country. The pre-production and principal photography of Kathanar will be completed in a year and will be released in seven languages.”

Talking of Sunny, Jayasurya's 100th film has been written and directed by Ranjith Sankar. It is also produced by both Ranjith Sankar and Jayasurya under the banner of Dreams N Beyond. Sunny is Jayasurya and Ranjith’s eighth collaboration. The film is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
