After the significant overhaul in the cast and crew, the shooting was resumed earlier this year on the massive sets erected at Varikkassery Mana. The first look poster released earlier had confirmed that the rest of the film will be made under the direction of Padmakumar. Actor Unni Mukundan was roped in recently. According to sources, the producers were not happy with the pace of the shooting as Sanjeev completed only 10 percent of the film, even after completing two schedules. The upcoming film tells the tale of a warrior named Chaaverukal and his bid to overthrow the Zamorin ruler. Advertising
On Saturday, the makers had released the poster of the period drama featuring Mammootty leading his army from the front in a battle. The production of Mamangam was in limbo due to the differences between director Sanjeev Pillai and the producers of the film. #Mamangam pic.twitter.com/QiCWbbECq8
