The official merchandise line of Pencilashan aka Vishnu Madhav has launched the world’s first തള്ള് calendar and a calendar dedicated to the supervillains of Malayalam cinema. All the illustrations that you see in the calendar are by Pencilshan himself. The തള്ള് calendar is a satirical ode to the absurd claims made by well-known political figures. The supervillain calendar, on the other hand, is a dedication to Malayalam cinema’s iconic villains such as Kottarakkara Sreedharan Nair in My Dear Kuttichathan, John Honayi, Bhaskara Patelar, among others.
