Gautham Menon is currently involved in the film Née Thane En Ponvasantham. This film has Jiiva and Samantha in the lead roles. The music of this movie is scored by Ilayaraja and is a major aspect of this movie.
Gautham Menon’s last release was ‘Ek Deewana Tha’ in Hindi. This featured Pratheik Babbar and Amy Jackson. It is the remake of the 2010 Super Hit film ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya’, which starred Simbhu and Trisha. It was directed by Gautham Menon and music was scored by A.R.Rahman. This film turned out to be a block buster.
The remake version ‘Ek Deewana Tha’ did not click. One of the reasons is said to be not so special chemistry between Pratheik and Amy. Earlier, Gautham tweeted that, “Never mind the critics’ guys. They are just doing their job. I’ve never got great reviews for any of my films.”
In the recent past, Gautham is very much infuriated with the critics, for the failure of this film. He blasted the critics and vented his anger by tweeting that, “Some ten birdbrains may be capable of killing a film but they can’t stop a filmmaker’s journey. That continues… Come and get me, again.”
