Mollywood Blockbuster hit Premam directed by Alphonse Puthren and starred by Young star Nivin Pauly had terminated in Kerala after playing around 125 days but it is still making it presence felt in Kollywood. The film is still running in Tamil Nadu with good collections specially in the holidays. In the famous multiplex named Sathyam Cinemas in Chennai, Premam is still running with good status on its 185th day as well. The film will cross 200 days there as per reports and that will be history of Malayalam cinema as well.
The film has been the second biggest grosser of Malayalam Cinema history after Mohanlal’s Drishyam. But made more impact in Tamil Nadu than Drishyam. It is surely because of the youth oriented subject the film told including romance and youthful songs and comedy. The spreading of censor copy of the film marred its run here in Kerala. The collection also got affected. But it seems that in Tamil Nadu it was not affected the film. Alphonse Puthren- Nivin Pauly teams’s first film Neram also was a hit in Tamil Nadu and also Nivin- Dulquer Salmaan- Fahad starrer Anjali Menon film Bangalore Days also done good business there.
It seems that Nivin Pauly’s market was raising in fast pace in Tamil Nadu as well. The talks are going on about the remake of Premam in Tamil. Earlier there was reports that Dhanush is going remake it in Tamil with Vijay Sethupathy. But later Dhanush himself denied that news through his social media profile. The film is now making in Telugu in the title Majnu. It has Naga chaithanya in the lead role along with Sruthi Hasan and Anupama Parameshwaran who reprising the same character she had done in the Malayalam version.
The Tamil Remake may be not going to materialize in this situation in which the Malayalam version is running there with good acceptance. Even Selva Raghavan said that it cannot be remade in to Tamil as he thinks no others can do justice to this film other than Alphonse Puthren, Nivin Pauly etc who had just gave their best use skills for the film.
