Evergreen hit of Selva Raghavan!

It's actually 13 years ago. Still, it's sweet and evergreen. Director Selva Raghavan (Sri Raghava in Telugu film industry) directed a big star for the first time in Telugu. He delivered a hilarious film '

Aadavari Matalaku Ardhale Verule' (AMAV), a women-centric domestic story with the right feel and fervor for Venkatesh. AMAV remains forever in the minds of the audiences. The film was released in 2007 and became a high commercial success. One of the Selva Raghavan's interviews on AMAV, he said: I was amazed by the performances of Venkatesh and Trisha. I learned so many things while making this film. Venky contributed a lot to the script. No doubt there is a filmmaker in Venkatesh. Venkatesh was paired with Trisha for the first time. Venky played a man named Ganesh while Trisha was an aggressive career-minded girl. Sriram (Srikanth in Tamil) had a very important character. Kota Srinivasa Rao, Sivaji and legendary director Vishwanath were also in the cast. Yuvan Shankar Raja composed the music for the film. Editing was  handled by Kola Bhaskar while cinematography was handled by Balamurugan. The film was produced by NV Prasad and Shanam Naga Ashok Kumar in the banner of Sri Sai Deva Productions. The film was released on 272 screens including 15 in Karnataka, 8 in Orissa and 21 overseas. The movie had collected Rs 30 crore and completed a 50-day run in 200 centres and a 100-day run in 21 centres. AMAV won three Nandi Awards viz Venkatesh- Best Actor, Best Popular Feature Film received by NV Prasad and Shanam Naga Ashok Kumar and Best Dialogue Writer for Ramesh - Gopi. Trisha received "Best Actress" awards by the Filmfare Awards South, CineMAA awards. Further Venkatesh received "Best Actor" award by Santosham Film Awards. Following its success, this movie was remade in Tamil as 'Yaaradi Nee Mohini' directed by Selva Raghavan's assistant Mithran Jawahar starring Dhanush and Nayanthara in the lead roles. Karthik Kumar, Raghuvaran, legendary director K Vishwanath, Karunas and Saranya Mohan play supporting roles. And 'Yaaradi Nee Mohini' had slightly different climax than the original Telugu version.
