While couple of movies like Raavanan and Kadal from Maniratnam failed to make a good show in box office. Significantly, he tried to hit back with a bang pitching a romantic theme with new age romance titled ‘O Kadhal Kanmani’.
The film featured Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menen in lead roles with Prakash Raj, Leela Samson, RJ Ramya and late actor Manoj in important roles. The film got the best reception among the young and teenage audiences. Especially, the sizzling onscreen chemistry by Dulquer and Nithya followed by the colourful cinematography of P.C. Sriram and AR Rahman’s magical music become the greatest highlight.
Although, the film got mixed reviews, it managed to gain decent collections for the urban areas. Maniratnam’s assistant Shaad Ali has now remade the film in Hindi titled ‘OK Jaanu’ starring Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles.
The hot and happening pair has already made everyone in awe with their sizzling performance in ‘Aashiqui 2’. Now the shooting of ‘OK Jaanu’ has been completed. The film will have fresh tunes by AR Rahman, who personally came forward with this idea of creating new tunes.
