Now, it’s the turn of Tamil filmmaker Selvaraghavan to appreciate the film Premam which had made waves in Kerala and Tamilnadu. In fact the film had become one of the few Malayalam films which had done great in Tamilnadu. In 1990’s, few Mammootty and Mohanlal films had done great in Tamilnadu. Later if we have to say about great business and theater run, only Mohanlal starrer Drishyam had great impact there. Now, Premam has also completed 100 days of its run in Tamilnadu.
As per reports it had helped Nivin Pauly to create a huge fan base there as well along with Telugu industry. The film is all set to be remade to Telugu and Tamil as well. In Telugu, it will be titled as Majnu and will have Naga Chaitanya in the lead role. In Tamil it will be remaking under the production of Dhanush who is also the brother of Selvaraghavan. Vijay Sethupathy is said to playing the lead role in the Tamil version of the film even though official confirmation has not come out yet.
Selvaraghavan tweeted after watching Premam that it was too late to watch the film and he feels sad for missing it earlier. He said that Premam was in fact a beautifully well-made film from Alphonse Putharen. The performance of the artists and also the music section was just superb as well. Selvaraghavan had all praise for Nivin Pauly as well. He says that he was particularly blown over by the superb performance of Nivin Pauly as the male lead. He said thanks to the director Alphonse Putharen for making all of us love again with this beautiful film named Premam.
Selvaraghavan also said that when it comes to the matter of remaking it to any other language, only the man Alphonse Putharen can do full justice to that film with his great skills. He said, same is the case with playing the lead character of George. Only Nivin Pauly’s face comes to his mind and he cannot imagine anyone else for playing that character as good as Nivin Pauly.
