Director Radha Mohan, who has many successes over the years, with movies such as Mozhi, Payanam and Abhiyum Nanum has often brought in a character who plays a Punjabi.
Even in his latest film Gouravam, produced by (Duet Movies) Prakash Raj productions, he has introduced a promising newcomer Sanjay Saravan (as Manmeet Singh) who plays a substantial role in this movie…
Two different climaxes for Gouravam!
Allu Sirish’s debut movie ‘Gouravam’ is releasing on Sri Ramanavami festival simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu. Radha Mohan of ‘Payanam’ and Abhiyum Nanum fame is the director and has taken certain steps to ensure that the film is a hit in both the languages. He has decided to change the climax differently for both the versions.
Telugu version will have a different climax and lesser drama as compared to Tamil. Yami Goutham is the female lead in the film. It is produced by Prakash Raj and he plays a pivotal role in the movie.
Music is scored by SS Thaman.
Radha Mohan’s take on the Gouravam issue
Director of Gouravam, Radha Mohan, has clarified his stand to SouthDreamz.com on the concerns raised by a particular community regarding the film being insensitive to certain groups. After watching the trailer, the community in question raised objection to the film’s intent and demanded a ban on its release.
Radha Mohan believes that the group’s concerns are imaginary assumptions and went on to say that he had absolutely no intentions to malign any particular group or individual. When asked if he would screen the film to the community, the director responded by saying “If the law or police demands us to screen the movie we will do so, but we haven’t received any such requests”.
Another bone of contention for the objecting community was that the film was based on the tragic Dharmapuri incident, which was a case of honor killing. Radha Mohan explained that he had shot nearly 80% of the movie even before the Dharmapuri honor killing incident, so it has nothing to do with that specific episode.
The director reiterated his impeccable track record of churning out socially responsible films and urged the people to watch the film before drawing their own conclusions.
