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!
