The sensational Telugu film Bommarillu recently completed 14 years of release.
The movie Bommarillu which was director by then debutant director Bhaskar, went on to be an overnight sleeper hit. The performances of the lead actors and music gained wide recognition around the world. The movie broke several records at the box office and was one of the highest grossing Telugu films.
Directed by Bhaskar, the film was remade in Tamil as Santosh Subramaniam with Jayam Ravi and Genelia in the lead roles. To celebrate 14 years of Bommarillu, Siddharth and Genelia had a virtual reunion.
In the video, Genelia and Siddharth are all smiles as Appudo Ippudo song from the film plays in the background. Siddharth had sung the song for the film.
Sharing the video, Genelia wrote, "N then this happened..Reunion. Missed you Bhaskar, Dilrajugaru, joinprakashraj and @thisisdsp and the entire Bommarillu team. #14yearsofbommarillu (sic)."
Genelia said that she missed having director Bhaskar, producer Dil Raju, actor Prakash Raj (who played Siddharth's father in the film), and music director Devi Sri Prasad in the reunion.
Bommarillu, which released in 2006, won several awards and accolades. The film won the Golden Nandi Award. Director Bhaskar, dialogue writer Abburi Ravi, Prakash Raj and Genelia won multiple awards for their work.
Bommarillu is a story of Siddhu and his strained relationship with his father, who has excessive concern about his son.
Siddharth plays the character of Siddhu, a boy who wants to live life on his own terms. While his overly possessive father, played by Prakash Raj does not allow him do that and takes decisions on his son’s behalf.
Genelia, who plays the role of a bubbly college-goer, Hasini received wide recognition, as the character is more relative to her natural vivacity in real life.
The catchy phrases used by the female lead "ha..ha..haasini", "Kudharthe cup coffee","anthaena?", went viral among youngsters.
The movie had seven chartbuster hits, composed by Devi Sri Prasad, of which the famous "Appudo ippudo" song was sung by Actor Siddharth himself.
The film was remade in Tamil, Bengali and Odia languages under the titles Santosh Subramaniam, Bhalobasa Bhalobasa and Dream Girl respectively.
