Silambarasan’s yet another remake flick is ready to hit the screens. The actor, who did Vaanam, a remake of Telugu movie Vedam earlier this year, set his eyes on Bollywood movie Dabangg and subsequently expressed his wish to star in the Tamil version. As he desired, Mohan Apparao bagged the rights and launched the movie, Osthe in no time with Gilli fame Dharani helming the project.
As far as leading ladies of the film are concerned, the makers of the film approached Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor and others. But the B-town babes turned down the offers for various reasons. However, the movie bosses finalised Richa Gangopadhyay to play the role of a village belle, which was played by Sonakshi Sinha in Dabangg. Githan Ramesh, Richa Gangopadhyay, Revathi, Nassar and Sonu Sood were signed for other key roles.
Osthe has a masala story, which is fabricated with family drama and heroism to much extent. Silambarasan has donned the role of a corrupted cop, who helps the needy. While Nassar and Revathi play the characters of his parents, Ganesh will be seen in the role of Richa’s drunkard father. The interesting part of the cast is that Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat has shaken her legs for an item song ‘Kalasala’. In the original, Mallika Arora Khan popularised the item number, ‘Munni badnaam hui’.
Coming to the audio, S Thaman has provided some catchy tunes, which has already become hit among mass. ‘Osthe Maamey’, ‘Neduvaali’ and ‘Kalasala Kalasala’ are the picks of the album. In fact, the success of the music has added fuel to the expectations of the audience. However, Osthe is all set to hit the screens tomorrow.
