The teaser/curtain-raiser of Harish Kalyan starrer Dharala Prabhu is out now. Helmed by Yuddham Sharanam fame Krishna Marimuthu, the film is being bankrolled by Screen Scene Media Entertainment. Though the film marks the Tamil feature film debut for the director, he previously directed a promo musical ‘The Mercury Song’ for director Karthik Subbaraj’s Mercury in 2018. He was also a former assistant of director AL Vijay.
The teaser features Kannadasan (Vivek), the owner of ‘Murugappan Fertility Centre’ meeting various couples with highly unrealistic demands regarding the appearance of their children. While one asks for the child to be an actor like Dhanush, another wants blue eyes for the child. And then we’re introduced to the ‘father’ of the many children — a chic, cool-headed played by Harish, who is partying and gaming mostly. The teaser like Harish’s role in the film, looks pretty competent.
Harish took to Twitter to release the teaser.

The film is an official remake of the Ayushmann Khurrana–Yami Gautam hit Vicky Donor (2012). The story in itself was inspired by the 2011 Canadian movie Starbuck. Vicky Donor was a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of sperm donation and infertility and it won the National Film Award for ‘Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment’ at the 60th National Film Awards. It was also remade in Telugu as Naruda Donoruda starring actors Sumanth and Pallavi Subhash.
While Thadam fame Tanya Hope will be paired opposite Harish, actor-comedian Vivek has landed the role of the doctor (Annu Kapoor in the original). On the technical front, Selvakumar Sk is handling cinematography, Kripakaran is editing and Kamal is handling the production design. ‘Stunner’ Sam will be choreographing stunt, Yashwanth choreographing dance and Pallavi Singh on costumes. Subu and Sudarshan Narasimhan have penned the story of Dharala Prabhu.
Recently, the production house, Screen Scene Media Entertainment announced that the film has roped in eight prominent music directors to compose for the film. The team has planned on doing a collaborative album instead of a conventional one to bring in more flavour to the film. The list comprised of composers Vivek Siva and Mervin J Solomon who recently composed for Pattas, Oorka The Band that made its debut in the industry with Aadai, Inno Genga, a British playback singer known for ‘Kannamma’ from Ko 2 and ‘Ullalaa’ from Petta, Sean Roldan who has composed for Pa Paandi and Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2, Bharath Shankar from the Oorka Band for a separate composition, Kaber Vasuki who is debuting as music director for Sillukaruppatti fame Halitha Shameem‘s next Aelay, Madley Blues that has composed for Sutta Kadhai (2013) and for the title track of Tamil Bigg Boss, and Anirudh Ravichander who recently composed for Darbar.
