Mithran Jawahar’s third directorial venture Uthama Puthiran, a Diwali bonanza, is actor Dhanush’s third movie teaming with MJ and it also happens to be the director’s third consecutive Telugu remake following his earlier two, Yaaradi Nee Mohini and Kutty.

Uthama Puthiran, the remake of Tollywood’s 2008 release Ready has a strong star cast with Dhanush,
  Uthama Puthiran
Genelia, Vivek, Karunas, Bhagyaraj, Mayilsamy, Uma Padmanabhan, etc.

‘Ready’ had Genelia play the female lead. ‘Yaaradi Nee Mohini’ was a remake of ‘Aadavari Matalaku Ardhalu Verule’ and ‘Kutty’ was the remake of ‘Arya’. Mithran’s first story Yaaradi Nee Mohini revolved around a jumbo joint family beautifully woven with all emotions true to so many relatives living under the same roof. His next movie Kutty had a fine share of romance and comedy well blended. So what really would this Diwali release hover around? According to the Director, it is drafted purely on the lines of clean entertainment with comedy, love and action running through. This genre is one that well suits Dhanush always. So it is sure to gear up viewers’ Diwali celebration mood and be the right gift to Dhanush fans.

To quizzes and questions as to why it’s Dhanush as the choice always, Mithran’s candid response is that they share a very good understanding and if wavelengths match sans any ego, things work pretty better. Anyhow he denies any sentiment tagged on.

Vivek plays a slightly elderly role which he is supposed to have hesitated initially and then accepted because of Dhanush’s special request. Padikkathavan saw the two of them, Dhanush and Vivek, team up well and probably that’s why probably Dhanush would have been particular in having Vivek in the pivotal role. A fair part of this movie has been shot in Tirunelveli and Chennai.

This is a creation from Balaji Studios Pvt Ltd, the production house of Mohan Appa Rao and T Ramesh. The story and script is the imagination of writer Gopimohan of Tollywood. Vijay Antony’s music is already creating ripples around and we have to be patient to see how well the songs gel with the story and how best they have been picturised.

The audio release of Uthama Puthiran was held earlier this month in Chennai in the presence of director KS Ravi Kumar and producers RB Choudhary and Sun Pictures’ Hans Raj Saxena. Only the title will trigger memories of the 1958 blockbuster hit, especially so to staunch Sivaji fans. Thus expectations may also be high, who knows? Even the fresh Dhanush-Genelia combo may weave a new magic as a crowd puller.

If frequencies match well, the same team can keep creating success stories one after the other. Let’s wait and watch what is in store from this duo, Mithran and Dhanush, untiringly teaming for the third time. If names can create magic then the 1958 success story of Uthama Puthiran is bound to recur.
