An interesting aspect of the movie is that Mammootty will be seen in a dual role as that of a CBI officer who comes to re-investigate the case in 2009 and a feudal Muslim landlord who lived in the 50s and is linked to the crime. But there would be no connection between the two characters. Many new artistes have been chosen for some key roles in the movie like Mythili as Manikkam.
Sreenivasan, Vijayaraghavan, Siddique and many other eminent artistes can be seen in key roles in the movie. The shooting of Paleri Manikkam will commence on July 3 at Mookambika temple.
