Is it a
mere coincidence or a rumour that the story of Mohanlal's
Madambi, written and directed by B. Unnikrishnan, looks
similar to the story of Mammootty's Parunthu, written by
T.A. Razak? Anyway, the latest buzz says the storylines of both
films are almost the same.
In Madambi, Mohanlal plays Gopalakrishna Pillai, a
money lender in a village who knows how to recover his interest and
principal using the right pressure techniques. In
Parunthu, Mammootty is a ruthless moneylender, Gillette
Purushothaman, who uses all dirty and crude tricks to recover his
interest and principal from his borrowers as money is the ultimate
thing for him.
Meanwhile, directors Padmakumar and Unnikrishnan say that are
not bothered even if both films are similar. There might be a few
common things, but the depiction of the characters would be very
different when it comes to Mohanlal and Mammootty, they add.
Mammootty and Mohanlal are currently busy shooting their films
which are likely to be released in 75 centres on July 18. Let's
wait few more days to see both on the screen, then decide!
