Happy Days is interesting as well. After getting besotted
by the songs of the then-unreleased Happy Days played
by his driver in his car, Prakash inquired about the
movie. During his next trip to Hyderabad, he met with
the producers, saw the movie and struck a deal and
later acquired the Tamil rights even before it was
released in Telugu. After the movie became a runaway
success, Prakash was approached many times by Tamil
producers asking for the rights and willing to pay
astronomical sums. Prakash never parted with the rights
and here we have Inidhu Inidhu.
According to the scope of the movie, it’s supposed
to have been shot almost entirely in a college. Kammula
shot Happy Days in his own college (Chaitanya Bharathi
Institute of Technology). However, the college location
Guhan selected for Inidhu Inidhu is as yet unknown.
Mickey G Meyer, who scored music for Happy Days is
retained for the Tamil version too. His famously popular
numbers should give the movie the required push.
Happy Days also starred Tamannah but sadly Prakash
seems to have done away with her and opted for a debutant
instead. The movie was also earlier dubbed and released
in Kerala owing to the huge popularity Telugu films
enjoy in Mallu land on par with Tamil movies.
The movie rides so much on all these positive aspects
and the fact that it comes from the Prakash Raj’s
Duet Movies stable, known for producing sensible movies
scales up the expectation levels. It’s also
widely expected that Prakash will get his business
right this time too.
