Mammootty with Ram again, Mollywood top star’s love for Tamil

Mammootty has dubbed his own lines in the Tamil version of Mamangam. Interestingly, director Ram of Mammootty starrer Peranbu fame is penning the dialogues for the Tamil version.

Mamangam is a period drama set against the backdrops of 1695 centering on the religious festival, which was held once in 12 years at Thirunavaya across the banks of Bharatpuzha.

Unnimukundan, Achuthan, Sidhique, Manikkuttan, Manikandan Achary, Tarun Arora, Prachi Tehlan, Kaniha, Anu Sithara, Iniya and many others are part of the movie, produced by Venu Kunnappilly. Manoj Pillai has cranked the camera for the film and Jayachandran is composing the music.

Says the director, “Mammootty sir’s linguistic mastery has been a well-known fact beyond the boundaries of God’s own country. Especially, his excellent command over the Tamil language has been a source of inspiration for many artists from the Malayalam film fraternity, especially for his exact pronunciations that exactly sounds like a Tamilian.

Despite possessing such outstanding skills, the way he took efforts to dub in Tamil for Mamangam surprised us. He gave himself into a lot of rehearsals and practice in getting the exact syllable of ancient Tamil.

I thank director Ram sir who has written the dialogues for Tamil,  for being so much supportive throughout the process. We are looking forward to releasing the movie simultaneously in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, and Hindi.

We are overwhelmed by the exceedingly great reception for the film’s Tamil teaser. Tamil Nadu has never missed to spread out the red carpets for the unique contents and I am wholesomely experiencing it now”.
