Hiphop Tamizha is composing music for this venture with Richard M Nathan cranking the camera and Pradeep E Ragav editing it. This film is scheduled to hit the marquee on August 15,
From the trailer of Comali, we understand that the film is a about a man who wakes from coma after several years and the the events after he regains consciousness is narrated with large doses of comedy.
Reports going around social media are that the upcoming Telugu film Disco Raja, which has Ravi Teja in the lead role, is also based on the same premise. Vi Anand is wielding the megaphone for this entertainer which has Allari Naresh in an important role. Three leading ladies Nabha Natesh, Payal Rajput and Priyanka Jawalkar were roped in to share the screen space with Ravi Teja.
It may be noted here that we had reported earlier that the producer of Disco Raja wanted to bring down the cost of production from Rs 40 crores to Rs 30 crores following which some changes in the script were made. This did not go well with Raja Maharaja due to which the shooting was put on hold. But with the producer clarifying that all is well with Disco Raja, fans can wait patiently for its release.
With reports that both these films are based on similar stories, we need to wait for the audiencesâ€™ reaction. Further, the makers of Comali did face a copyright issue with another director claiming the story was his and filed a complaint at the Writers Association.
