Out of the three love stories from "Premam", the Malayalam blockbuster directed by Alphonse Puthren, which is your favourite?

For most fans, the answer would be the the Malar-George romance that featured Sai Pallavi and Nivin Pauly. But if you've watched "Neram", Alphonse Puthren's Tamil-Malayalam bilingual which also featured Nivin Pauly, you might be surprised to know that the idea for the Malar-George love story was narrated in a short scene in the film!

Here's Shammi Thilakan, who played a sub inspector in "Neram", telling a few accused assembled at the station the story of his failed romance. The similarity to the second portion of "Premam" is quite striking! This old video has resurfaced and is going viral among fans of the film.
