Premam cinema is still making news and the impact it had on youngsters here is unarguably big. The film had completed its 200 days run in Sathyam Cinemas Multiplex. The film had become a big impact in Tamil Nadu as well and as per reports they dropped the plans to remake it into Tamil as well. Because popular filmmaker Selva Raghavan himself said that it will be very tough to find artists to replace Nivin Pauly and all others in Premam. He also said that only Alphons Puthran can do justice to the film and no other can do as good as he did in Premam as a director, writer and editor. Dhanush was the one who interested in remaking the film to Tamil with Vijay Sethupathy in the lead. But later he said that he did not have plans to remake it as of now.
The success of the film in Tamil Nadu had given a great market for Nivin Pauly there as well. His earlier Mollywood releases such as The Metro were dubbed and released there as he has some market there with the successes like Neram, Bangalore Days and now Premam. Not many Malayalam films had made much impact in Tamil Nadu box office.
In 1990’s Mohanlal and Mammootty films had released there with its Tamil dubbed versions and they had done good business as well. But later that trend vanished there. Recently the film that had made huge impact there was Mohanlal starrer Drishyam which ran above 100 days in Chennai as well. Premam had also had a theater run of 150+ days here in Kerala as well. It is very surprising that a Malayalam film which only ran around 150 days here in Kerala had ran above 200 days in Tamil Nadu.
Premam is now remaking to Telugu as well with Naga Chaithanya, Sruthi hasan, Anupama Parameshwaran, Disha Pattani in the lead roles. The still from the Telugu version shootinf spot is already viral in Social Media. The film is titled as Majnu in Telugu. Anyway the Premam Mania is still not over and its continuing to make new milestones for Malayalam cinema.
