The Nayanthara starrer Kolamaavu Kokila turned out to be a big hit in Kollywood. Following its immense success, its makers decided to release the dubbed version in Telugu which got released on August 31. However, lack of publicity did not bring in the desired results for the dubbed version, Co Co Kokila, and it has turned out to be a box office dud. According to trade reports, Nayantharaâ€™s other dubbed films also did not fetch good results at the box office in the past for the same reason.
Kolamaavu Kokila, starring the Lady Superstar Nayanthara in the title role, hit the silver screens on August 17 to positive reviews. While movie buffs are raving about the film, especially Nayanâ€™s performance in it, celebs like director Shankar and Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar posted positive comments about it on social networking sites.
Kolamaavu Kokila is directed by Nelson Dilipkumar and bankrolled by A Subhashkaran under the banner Lyca Productions. The film has an interesting line up of star cast with comedian Yogi Babu playing a character that woos Nayanthara. This certainly had the audiences in splits of laughter. The film also has Saranya Ponvannan, Hareesh Peradi and Aranthangi Nisha playing supporting roles. The film is rumoured to be inspired from the popular American show Breaking Bad. Apparently, Kolamavu is the colloquial word used in the film for cocaine.
Anirudh is the music composer for this flick and the single, â€˜Kalyana Vayasuâ€™, filmed on Yogi Babu and Nayanthara, turned out to be an instant chartbuster after its release. Siva Kumar Vijayan cranked the camera for this venture with Nirmal editing it.
