Cyril to direct

ACE ART director Sabu Cyril is turning director with Anantha Bhadram, a theme that borders on superstitions and black magic. Prithviraj and Kavya Madhavan play the lead roles in this mystique movie. Of course the original choice for the heroine's role was Meera Jasmine. As Meera was tied up with a number of Telugu and Tamil assignments, the debutant director says that he chose Kavya to play the role.

Based on a Malayalam novel, the theme deals with the life of a young man from Mumbai who visits his native village in Kerala to perform the last rites of his mother.

The film talks about his rural experiences and his involvement in certain incidents that happen in the village with black magic and superstitions taking the front seat. Sabu expects to complete the film in 40 days with the same passion that he had worked as an art director. He had roped in fellow national award winners - Thiru for cinematography and Srikar Prasad for editing. Vidyasagar who won the Kerala State best music director award composes the music.
