Malaal marks the debut of Meezaan and Sharmi Segal. The film is helmed by Mangesh Hadawale and is produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bhushan Kumar, Mahaveer Jain and Krishan Kumar.
If you are someone who has watched a lot of Tamil movies, the trailer of Malaal must have definitely reminded you of a film made several years ago; the chawl, the conflict between the lead actors, the awkwardness in their love… all of it. If you are still wondering which film we are talking about, then let us break the suspense.
The film is 7G Rainbow Colony which starred Ravi Krishna and Sonia Agarwal in lead roles. The film came out in 2004 and went on to do well at the box office. Besides the story, it was Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music that contributed to the success of the film.
Now coming to the Dhanush connection, here it is. 7G Rainbow Colony was written and directed by K. Selvarghavan, Dhanush’s older brother. The trailer of Malaal also credits the story of the film to Selvaraghavan.
It would be interesting to see if Malaal sticks to the original story or there are some twists to suit the Hindi audiences.
