It seems like fans of Nivin Pauly's Malayalam movie Premam are not planning to stop trolling the Telugu version of the blockbuster as social networking websites are getting flooded with creative memes each day.
Trollers had enough when photos of Shruti Haasan, who reprises the role Malar Miss played by Sai Pallavi, were leaked online from the sets of the romantic entertainer. Also read: Fans say Sai Pallavi is irreplaceable.
The troll gaga continued after the video song Evare (remake of Malare song) was released online, after which the fans of Nivin and Sai began criticising the makers for casting Naga Chaitanya and Shruti for the roles that were well accepted by the audience in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

Not just this, the trolling continued after a grand audio launch event was organised in Hyderabad that saw the presence of cast and crew of the Telugu movie on September 20. It was during this event, the makers released the other songs and the theatrical trailer of the upcoming movie. Since Anupama Parameshwaran and Madonna Sebastian reprise their roles in the remake movie as well, trollers made less criticism to the newly released songs.
However, Naga's acting has been tagged as "overacting" by few netizens. They claim that Naga has failed to perfectly reprise the role played by Nivin in the Alphonse Puthren directorial.
No offence to the makers of this one, fr many ppl who have watched Premam(Malayalam), this remake has terribly failed(based on trailer launched) Feels like they tried really hard to recreate the magic,but it didn't work out well! Premam will always be Nivin Pauly's. [sic]
Nivin Pauly is better than Naga Chaitanya. #Premam

Looking a little promising this time with this colorful trailer :p But of course, can never be compared with the actual epic ;)
Why is the Telugu version of Premam garnering negative response even before movie release?
Netizens are disappointed with the expressions of the actors in the remake version and predict the destiny of the upcoming movie in a negative way. While the Telugu audience seem to be happy with the songs and trailer, Keralites and Tamilians have been comparing the performance of the actors in Telugu version with the original movie that become the sole reason for garnering negative response.
Will the box office collection of the Telugu version take a hit with the movie garnering negative response even before the release? It is something that we need to wait and see on October 7.
