More about Aadujeevitham
Aadujeevitham, also known as The Goat Life, has been in the pipeline for more than five years now and is undoubtedly one of the most awaited Malayalam films of all time. The film is based on Benyamin’s novel of the same name, which itself is based on a true story.
The story revolves around Najeeb Muhammed, played by Prithviraj Sukumaran, who is an immigrant laborer and is forced into slavery in Saudi Arabia.
The film features Amala Paul, Jimmy Jean-Louis, and many more in crucial roles. Aadujeevitham began its production in 2018, and the team was even stuck in the deserts of Jordan at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The film also required Prithviraj to undergo severe body transformations, which started at 98 kgs and reduced to 67 over time. The changes in his body were so severe that the actor even fainted once while filming a scene.
The music for the film has been composed by AR Rahman, while Sunil KS and KU Mohanan have cranked the camera for the film. Academy Award winner Resul Pookutty has taken care of the sound design and veteran editor A Sreekar Prasad has taken care of the editing. The film is all set to release on April 10, next year.
