A still from the film

A few days ago, Kannada filmmaker KM Chaitanya had taken to social media to announce that the final DTS (audio mixing for theatre) of his next, Abbabba had been completed. “Just completed the DTS of #abbabba What a journey this has been on just soundtrack. A comedy film offers very little space for music. Hats off to my music director Deepak Alexander for finding space to turn it into a musical journey. And to DTS engineer Gigumon T Bruce for finding the right balance,” he had written.

And now we hear that exactly a month later, Abbabba will be in theatres. Chaitanya has zeroed in on July 1 for his film, which has Likith Shetty and Amrutha Iyengar in the lead. Chaitanya, who last made a comedy in 2013, with Parari, returns to the genre with this film, which is a remake of the Malayalam film Adi Kapyaare Kootamani.

The original film starred Dhyan Sreenivasan, Namitha Pramod, Roshan Mathew, Neeraj Madhav, Aju Varghese, among many others, and transpires entirely in a college hostel for boys. The narrative is about the circumstances that lead to the heroine being smuggled into the hostel, which is under the care of a strict warden, as she has an agenda. While the plan is to let her out in the wee hours of the next morning, the plans go awry and she is stuck in the hostel. How a bunch of friends devise a way to get her out without arousing suspicion forms the crux of the narrative.

Adi Kapyaare Kootamani has been remade in Tamil already as Hostel and Abbabba will be the latest. The film has been produced by Mollywood actress Ann Augustine, along with Friday Film House, which, incidentally, is headed by Vijay Babu, who is currently embroiled in an alleged sexual assault case.
