Kaarthikk Sundar's Oh Manapenne, starring Harish Kalyan and Priya Bhavani Shankar in lead roles, is one of the most-expected Tamil films on which the young audience has pinned high hopes on. A couple of weeks ago, it was officially announced that the rom-com, which is the remake of Tollywood super hit film Pelli Choopulu (starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ritu Varma), will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar soon.
Though there were speculation on the movie dropping on the platform this week on the occasion of Dussehra, there weren't any update on the project till Sunday. On Monday, the streaming platform announced that the much-awaited film will be available online from October 22.
Harish and Priya took to social media to express happiness on bringing the movie to the audience soon. In his tweet, Harish wrote, "We are coming on oct 22nd to spread love, make u guys laugh & entertain you all," while Priya posted, "‘Tale of 2 people falling in loveRed heart’ is coming to you this oct 22nd on @DisneyPlusHS." The project was titled Oh Manapenne on October 2020, and the makers released its first look, too, then along with the title. The shooting of the film began in 2019 and was wrapped up last year.
The makers had earlier released two songs from the movie, Lazy Song and Bodhai Kaname, and film buffs are now eagerly waiting for its trailer. Both Harish Kalyan and Priya Bhavani Shankar were seen in Chimbudeven's Kasada Tabara, which premiered on SonyLIV more than a month ago. However, the actors didn't share screen space in it.
Interestingly, the Tamil remake of Pelli Choopulu was initially planned with Vishnu Vishal and Tamannaah under Gautham Menon's production. However, the project never took off due to some creative indifferences between the crew members.
