Helmed by Prabhuramm, actor Manikandan's Lover has been titled True Lover in Telugu. And it will be released in theatres on THIS date
Manikandan, who is the leading man of many loved Tamil films and series, will be seen in yet another romantic drama film titled Lover. The makers of the film, who had earlier announced its Tamil release date (February 9), have now revealed the title and release date of the Telugu version. Titled True Lover, the Telugu version will be released in theatres after the Tamil film --- on February 16.
The teaser for the film hints that Lover is based on complicated relationships. The video gives us a glimpse of Manikandan and Sri Gouri Priya’s college love story, which fades after some years due to ego clashes. Manikandan’s character is portrayed as a controlling and toxic boyfriend who suspects his girlfriend (Sri Gouri) of cheating on him. Sri Gouri's character gets sick of his behaviour and distances herself from him, which pushes him into depression. The teaser hints that the film will focus on their journey as a couple and the challenges that they face to make their relationship work.
In a recent interview, director Prabhuram revealed that Lover is a film filled with intense emotions. “Lover is about what goes into making a relationship work. It portrays the dynamics of a relationship between a man and a woman. Lover is a slightly serious film, with drama and intense emotions,” the director said.
Lover hit theatres on February 9, the same day as Rajinikanth and Vishnu Vishal's sports drama Lal Salaam. Meanwhile, Lover's Telugu version, True Lover, will clash with Varun Tej's historical action thriller, Operation Valentine, on February 16.
