Mammootty Dubs For ‘Mamangam’ In Ancient Tamil; Director Ram Has Penned The Dialogues

Mamangam Movie Stills Starring Mammotty

The teaser of actor Mammootty‘s Mamangam dropped recently and has garnered over three million views. The latest is that the actor has taken the Mamangam team by surprise by dubbing in Tamil, adapting the linguistic traits of ancient Tamil. Director Ram helped Mammootty with the Tamil dubbing, reportedly.

The team took to Twitter to share the news.

“Mammootty sir’s linguistic mastery has been a well-known fact beyond the boundaries of God’s own country. His excellent command over the Tamil language has been a source of inspiration for many artists from the Malayalam film fraternity, especially for his exact pronunciations. Despite possessing such outstanding skills, the way he took efforts to dub in Tamil for Mamangam surprised us. He took a lot of rehearsals and practice in getting the exact syllable of ancient Tamil. I thank director Ram, who has written the dialogues for Tamil, for being so supportive throughout the process. We are looking forward to releasing the movie simultaneously in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, and Hindi. We are overwhelmed by the exceedingly great reception for the film’s Tamil teaser. Tamil Nadu has never missed to spread out the red carpet for unique contents and I am wholesomely experiencing it now,” said Director Padmakumar.

The Tamil teaser dropped on October 4 along with the Telugu and Hindi teasers. Actor Arya also shared the teaser on his Twitter handle.

Mamangam is a period drama set against the backdrops of 1695 centering on the religious festival held once in 12 years at Thirunavaya across the banks of Bharatpuzha. The major premise is about the battles waged by few people called ‘chavers’ against a mighty king ‘Zamorin’ during the same festival, where one real hero achieves what nobody had done before and one unknown hero achieves the impossible.

Helmed by MB Padmakumar, the film’s cast includes Unni Mukundan, Achuthan, Sidhique, Manikkuttan, Manikandan Achary, Tarun Arora, Prachi Tehlan, Kaniha, Anu Sithara, and Iniya. Bankrolled by Venu Kunnappilly for Kavya Film Company, Manoj Pillai is cranking the camera, Raja Mohammad is on edit, M Jayachandran is composing music and Shaam Kaushal is choreographing stunts.


Mamangam is slated for release on 21 November 2019.

Yesterday, the first single ‘Mukkuthi’ (Malayalam version) from the film released. Shreya Ghoshal has rendered the melody penned by Rafeeq Ahammad with music by M Jayachandran.
