It's making, it's ambitions and the way it's going to cross borders and be celebrated and cherished for years to come, everything is huge about the film.
Watch the spectacle in theatres! 🙏🏼
This is going to be another game changer like Premam. I'm happy that you are watching the film, thambi. Enjoy your show.— Halitha (@halithashameem) February 26, 2024
and now this! A brilliant story that had to be told, multiple failed attempts to make it and one kickass film that encapsulates every emotion.— Kishen Das (@kishendas) February 25, 2024
Kanmani Anbodu will never be the same for me!
Disturbed, Mind blown and low key Jealous of how well this film is made ❤️
Manjummel Boys is set around a group of young men from Kerala who are out to explore Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu. What happens when they reach Gunaa cave, the place where Kamal Haasan's 1991 hit Guna was shot, is what forms the rest of the story.
Manjummel Boys pays homage to not just Kamal Haasan, but also to music composer Ilaiyaraaja's famous number Kanmani Anbodu Kadhalan, which has lyrics by the late Vaali and is sung by Kamal Haasan, late S Janaki.
"I'm a big fan of Ulaganayagan #KamalHaasan♥️. His Virumaandi was my inspiration. I don't know how he managed #Guna thirty years back🤞"— AmuthaBharathi (@CinemaWithAB) February 26, 2024
