‘Premam’ `Bang Bang“ song release.
Premam stormed the box office not just in Kerala but in other places as. There was a repeat audience for the romantic story that had a fresh take on a youth on his three stages of life. The music too became a rage and actors who played a two-minute role in it also became household names. Director Chandoo Mondeti is currently wrapping up the Telugu remake of Premam that has Naga Chaitanya in the lead with Anupama Parameswaran, Sruthi Hassan and Madonna Sebastian playing his love interests.
Chandoo is aware that there will be many comparisons. “Those who have seen Premam think all that I need to do is shoot same scenes and use similar music and that would make my job easier I am under a lot of pressure. It might sound like a cliché but this is not entirely a remake. I felt there would be no changes to be made, but the little changes became inevitable. Out of the three we were sure we needed one star heroine to pull the crowds whereas we retained Mary (Anupama) and Celine (Madonna).”
While discussing Premam’s music, Chandoo says, “Out of the eight songs in Premam, we used three songs with same music. We are sure Telugu audience will be happy we remade it instead of dubbing. The quality of this Telugu version is extraordinary. Men will relate to the story in a big way, especially those who are crossing the stage of marriage i.e in their mid 30s.”
