We had reported recently that the makers of Oh Manapenne, starring Harish Kalyan and Priya Bhavani Shankar in lead roles, had decided to release the rom-com on Disney+ Hotstar on October 22. Two singles from the movie were released earlier, and now the team has unveiled its trailer through Karthi's social media account.
Expressing happiness to have released the two-minute trailer and wishing the team very best, Karthi tweeted, "Happy to unveil the trailer of #OhManapenne! Congratulations and best wishes to the team! Streaming on @DisneyPlusHS from 22nd Oct." Kaarthikk Sundar has directed the movie which is the remake of Tollywood hit Pelli Choopulu which released in 2016.
Going by the trailer, the remake looks like a faithful attempt by the makers. Though a few scenes have retained as it is from the original version, looks like the Tamil version is likely to have a few changes in its latter half. In Telugu, Vijay Deverakonda and Ritu Varma had enacted the roles played by Harish and Priya in the Tamil version.
Interestingly, Pelli Choopulu had a Malayalam version, too, titled Vijay Superum Pournamiyum, which had hit the screens in 2019. The film had Asif Ali and Aishwarya Lekshmi essaying lead roles.
Satyanarayana Koneru and Ramesh Varma Penmetsa have bankrolled Oh Manapenne, which has Ashwin Kumar, Anbuthasan, Abishek Kumar, Venuu Arvind and Anish Kuruvilla, too, essaying important roles. Vishal Chandrashekhar has composed for the movie which has cinematography by Krishnan Vasant. Deepak Sundarrajan has penned the dialogues for the film which has editing by Kripakaran.
Harish Kalyan and Priya Bhavani Shankar were last seen in Chimbudeven's Kasada Tabara though they weren't paired opposite each other. The movie with six short stories, based on vantage point theory and butterfly effect, is streaming on SonyLIV. The film was a unique attempt which brought together six composers, six editors and six cinematographers.
