The Telugu remake of the Tamil film Oh My Kadavule, starring Vishwak Sen, was launched on Monday by the production house PVP Cinemas, in association with Dil Raju’s Sri Venkateswara Creations. Announcing the launch on Twitter, the production house confirmed that Ashwath Marimuthu, who debuted with the Tamil original, will be directing the Telugu version as well.
Oh My Kadavule, a romantic fantasy, released on February 14 and featured actors Ashok Selvan and Ritika Singh in the lead, with Vijay Sethupathi playing an extended cameo. The project will feature Sen in the lead role, with Tharun Bhascker writing the dialogues.
Oh My Kadavule was widely appreciated by critics and audiences and proved to be the highest grosser out of all films that hit screens on Valentine’s Day this year. It also re-released on several screens after cinema halls reopened in Tamil Nadu.
The film revolves around the relationship of a young married couple- Arjun and Anu (played by Selvan and Singh)- who have been best friends since childhood. The two however, are unable to find a romantic spark in their relationship and end up filing for divorce. A divine intervention occurs in Arjun’s life as Kadavul or God (played by Vijay Sethupathi) gives Arjun a second chance. What happens post this meeting with god, forms the rest of the story.
Earlier in July, Telugu actor Mahesh Babu had appreciated the team of Oh My Kadavule and said that he enjoyed the film. The film was selected to be screened at the International Indian Film Festival in Toronto in August 2020.
Leon James composed the music in the Tamil original. Vidhu Ayyanna Was the cinematographer and Boopathi Selvaraj was the editor. The details on the rest of the cast and crew members of the remake are yet to be announced. The film made its digital premiere on Zee5 in April after Zee Network bought the satellite and the digital broadcasting rights of the film.
