Oh My Kadavule, the socio-fantasy comedy starring Ashok Selvan, Ritika Singh and Vani Bhojan, turned out to be a surprise hit in Tamil in 2020 and earned praise from critics and audiences alike. Upon the film's success, PVP Cinema acquired the Telugu remake rights of the project. Titled Ori Devuda, the film directed by Ashwath Marimuthu, is headlined by Vishwak Sen and marks the Telugu debut of Little Things actress Mithila Palkar. Asha Bhat also plays an important role.

While the film's shoot was wrapped recently, the makers unveiled a special surprise for audiences today. It's official that Venkatesh will play the modern-day avatar of God in the film, the role that was originally essayed by Vijay Sethupathi in Tamil. A special promo confirming Venkatesh's presence in the film was launched, where the star, sporting black shades, picks up a book from a shelf and opens a page about the divorce of the leading man. 

Vishwak Sen and Rahul Ramakrishna too make an appearance in the promo. Moreover, the film will release for Diwali this year, with the team locking October 21 as the release date. Leon James, who also worked on the original, is composing the music for Ori Devuda too. Pearl V Potluri and Param V Potluri have bankrolled this film under PVP Cinema in collaboration with Sri Venkateswara Creations. Tharun Bhascker has penned the dialogues for the Telugu version.

The story of the film revolves around two childhood sweethearts who eventually marry one another and experience issues with their relationship. The almighty gives the young man another chance in life and lets him go back in time and resolve his problems. What does destiny have in store for him? Vidhu Ayyana has cranked the camera for the film while Vijay Mukthavarapu is the editor.
