Gamyam, directed by Jagarlamudi Radhakrishna (Krish), has been critically acclaimed and is one of the few genuine hits of 2008. The debutant director has spun a good tale filled with emotions that showcase the hero"s transformation of his outlook on life after his encounters with different people in different parts of his road journey.
The film reminds us of The Motorcycle Diaries and the director has given a refreshing feel to the essentially commercial flick. With a good script and good performances by Allari Naresh, Sharwanand and Kamalinee Mukherjee, the movie has been so different from the usual masala offerings and has completed 125 days with no great effort. So much so that theatres have introduced more shows of this movie.
It is now being made in several languages such as Hindi and Tamil. Dasari Narayana Rao will remake the film in Hindi and A.M. Rathnam will remake it in Tamil.
ravi Krishna, son of Rathnam, will most probably be the hero in the Tamil version while Kamalini Mukhejee, who was Janaki in the original Gamyam, will do the role in Tamil as well. Illan Kanna is set to direct the Tamil version while Krish himself will direct the Hindi version.
