Mallepuvvu was the title of the film which was a smashing hit in the seventies. The film was a remake of Guru Dutt’s Pyasa and starred the late Shoban Babu.
V Samudra is now directing a film titled Mallepuvvu, starring Bhoomika in the title role. Muralikrishna is playing the male lead. This film is being produced by Mohan Vadlapatla under the banner of Sri Samudra Silverscreens. P Prasad Raju is the presenter. The shooting is completed and the post production works are in full swing.
The story is written by director Ramesh Varma of Oka Oorilo fame and lyrics are by Veturi, while Illayaraja composed the music. The story is so good that Illayaraja took the Tamil rights of the film and Bhoomika acquired the Hindi remake rights.
The producer and the director said that they would be inviting all those artistes who starred in Shoban Babu’s Mallepuvvu as special guests for the audio launch of the film which would be held at the end of the July.
Mallepuvvu is being planned for release during the auspicious Sravana Maasam season.
