Filmmaker Mridul Nair’s digital debut Instagraamam will premiere next week on NeeStream. A web series, Instagraamam is about a fictitious village, Andippara, its people and their idiosyncrasies.
Set in Payyannur, Kannur, the series produced by Dr Leena S consists of 10 episodes, which revolve around a group of characters — Kaliyadathu Suku (Deepak Parambol) and his three friends, Society Dutt (Ganapathy), Padmarajan Andippara (Subhish Sudhi) and Puncture Sudhi (Shani Shaki) — and their relationships.
The web series, which is being touted as a light-hearted affair, was shot in Kannur and neighbouring areas. The series boasts an ensemble cast. Mridul himself comes in different roles. Several theatre artistes from Kannur are also a part of the series. Sunny Wayne, Sidharth Menon, Srinda and Saniya Iyappan make special appearances in Instagraamam, which was scripted by J Ramakrishna Kulur and Mridul. Cinematographers, Arun James, Pavi K Pavan and Dhanesh Raveendranath have captured some breathtakingly beautiful spots in and around Payyannur.
Neha Nair and Yakzan Gary Pereira have scored the music, while Manoj Kannoth has done the editing. Mridul who debuted as a filmmaker with the movie BTech, is set to release his next film Thattum Vellattam, which revolves around Theyyam, by September 2021.
