It has become the fashion to keep titles of old films for current films and Parthiban is no exception.
In a stretch of 14 days, director Sridar made Nenjam Marappadhillai starring Muthuraman, Kalyan Kumar and Devika. This is the same title given for Parthiban's new film. Nithya Das is the heroine.
The film is produced by M Gnanasundari for Sundari Films that has earlier produced films like Adidhadi and Gusthi.
Parthiban is an ambulance driver in the film. He calls it a new kind of role but he has already played an ambulance driver in another film. R Thirumurthy is the director. Judging by the story he narrated, it sounds like the remake of a Malayalam film.
As long as the reputation of the old film title is maintained, there's no problem!
