Mohanlal and Gautami's "Namadhu" was originally made in Telugu and Malayalam (as "Manamantha" and "Vismayam") and dubbed into Tamil. It is a family drama, which is written and directed by Chandra Sekhar Yeleti. Viswant Duddumpudi, Raina Rao, Anisha Ambrose, Urvashi, SP Balasubrahmanyam, Gollapudi Maruti Rao, Naresh and others are in the cast.
The interesting part of the story is that Mohanlal is teaming up with Gautami after a gap of 26 years. The last time the duo had worked together was in Malayalam film "His Highness Abdulla."
The latest film has Mahesh Shankar's music, Rahul Shrivatsav's cinematography and GV Chandra Sekhar's editing. Even though "Namadhu" is a dubbed flick, the film has managed to draw people's attention in Tamil Nadu. Thanks to Mohanlal and Gautami, whose presence have helped the flick to generate a good pre-release buzz. The trailer too has met with a good response resulting in creating positive vibes around the flick.
"Namadhu" tells the story of four individuals who are in different walks of life. Mohanlal plays the role of a man (Sairam), who works in a supermarket, Viswant Duddumpudi will be seen doing the role of an IT professional (Abhiram), Raina Rao as a school girl (Mahitha) and Gautami as an independent single mom (Gayathri).
