Chennai, Dec 13 (): Director Gautham Menon is back again with a breezy romantic entertainer. His latest venture is a trilingual in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi with Samantha as the lead lady in all three versions.
In Telugu, Gautham Menon’s film releases in the name of Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu with actor Nani playing the lead male role and in Tamil, the film releases in the name of Neethane En Ponvasantham with actor Jiiva playing the lead male role.
Both the films Neethane En Ponvasantham and Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu have created a lot of expectations among movie goers in Tamil Nadu as well as in Andra Pradesh.
Gautham Menon, the master of romance and the King of Melody Isaignani Ilaiyaraaja have come together for YVM and NEP, and there is no doubt that the movie is a musical extravaganza, celebrating love with Nani and Samantha portraying in Telugu version and Jiiva and Samantha portraying in Tamil version.
The Telugu version Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu was rumoured to have a passionate lip lock between the lead pair, as one of the posters released in the internet suggested such a closeness. Obviously, there were expectations that such a scene would be present in the Tamil version of the movie too, with Jiiva in place of Nani.
But Samantha has stated that the movie has been censored with a clean ‘U’ certificate and that there are no lip locks or other kissing scenes in the movie.
When Gautham Menon was asked if the film will be in the lines of ‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaya‘, the class director rubbished it and expressed that the film has a stronger and a different take on romance and love. It is also widely told that the lead will be shown in three stages of life in this film.
NEP and YVM release on December 14th Friday amid great expectations.
