Reportedly though the investigation in the Koodathayi alleged murders is yet to be concluded, Malayalam filmmakers wasted no time in announcing new projects on the sensational case which has rocked Kerala. Meanwhile less than a week after the deaths made headlines, producer Antony Perumbavoor announced a new crime drama project, with mohanlal as the investigating officer, and filmmaker Dini Daniel announced Koodathayi the title of her new movie where she will play ‘Dolly’, the alleged serial killer.
Furthermore it looks like the small screen industry in Malayalam has outpaced the eager filmmakers when it comes to cashing in on the mysterious deaths. Earlier on Friday, Malayalam channel Kairali News, released the promo of Krithyam, a fresh crime thriller series which will be the latest addition to the prime time entertainment schedule of Kairali TV.
Moreover Krithyam - a battle between life and death, which will begin on October 21 and be aired at 8 pm from Monday to Friday, is about multiple murders in a kerala Christian family and a 45 year old woman at the centre of it. Apparently Kairali TV, its director of Programs, Unni Cherian said “The series is yet to be aired and once you see the show, you will realise that it is not similar to the Koodathayi case. Of course this is a story and stories will always reflect real life. Therefore, somebody or the other will claim that there are similarities. But we did not write it keeping in mind the Koodathayi deaths".
