April 1 Vidudala was one of those comedy movies in Telugu that got remade in every other South Indian language. It’s a story of a cheater who tries to be honest to marry the love of his life. The movie was shot in a short period within a limited budget. But it was a blockbuster. It was remade in Tamil with Murali and Gowthami, but it didn’t have the impact that the Telugu version had.
Ompula Vaikiri/Kanmani Kanmani has an impressive first interlude – a modern retake on Mangalyam Thanthunanena by Ilaiyaraaja. Although there is a good version of the Telugu song, this is the only version of the Tamil song available on Youtube, and I don’t know why the uploader chose to have all these images – switch the screen and enjoy the song.
