Director V K Prakash's adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet titled Karmayogi, opens today (March 16).

Meanwhile, debutant director Sugeeth has chosen the breathtakingly beautiful Gavi as the location for his multi-star cast musical, Ordinary, which will hit the cinemas tomorrow (March 17).

We take a look at the Malayalam films.

Karmayogi
Director: V K Prakash
Cast: Indrajith, Padmini Kolhapure, Nithya Menen, Thalaivasal Vijay

Karmayogi has been some time in the making which the director says is due to "our scheme of things where serious movies get sidelined mercilessly".

The story is set in northern Malabar and though it is a period drama, the exact period is not specified.

Rudran Gurukkal (Indrajith) belongs to the Yogi clan, who practice an art form called Kelipaathram.

After the death of his father Rudran Valiya Gurukkal (Indrajith, in a brief second role), he is going through tremendous mental turmoil as his mother Mankamma (Padmini Kolhapure) has married the wily Bhairavan (Thalaivasal Vijay), her husband's brother.

"The unending conflicts in the mind of Rudran Gurukkal are the highlights of the film. It feels great to be part of this movie which gives an opportunity to explore yet another different character," says Indrajith.

Nithya Menen plays the heroine. Asokan, Manikkuttan and Saiju Kurup are also in the cast.
 
The script is by Balram Mattannoor, who scripted Jayaraj's Kaliyattam based on Shakespeare's Othello.

The cinematographer is R D Rajasekhar and the music director is Ouseppachan.

Karmayogi is being produced jointly by Innostorm Entertainment Group, Trends Ad Filmmakers and Creativeland Pictures.
