The dramedy revolves around the lives of four college buddies who meet at a reunion five years later.
Apart from Ramesh Thilak, director Nalan Kumarasamy, actors Swaminathan, Manas, Preetha Anandan, late Cheenu Mohan, and Madhuvanti Arun have significant roles. Mamakiki also has five composers on board – Vishal Chandrashekhar, Jakes Bejoy, MS John, R Surya Prasadh, and KalaCharan similar to the Harish Kalyan‘s recent romantic-drama Dharala Prabhu which saw eight composers on board.
The teaser of the film, which was released by filmmaker Gautham Menon on his Ondraaga Entertainment Youtube channel in 2018, has now been taken down. Although, the teaser is still available for viewing on the Facebook page.
The trailer of the film will be launched soon. Meanwhile, Ramesh who was last seen in Varalaxmi Sarathkumar starrer Velvet Nagaram will next feature in Vijay starrer Master. Velvet Nagaram dealt with the struggles Varalaxmi’s character faces after she begins to investigate a forest fire in the hills near Kodaikanal.
