Gautham Menon had already mentioned in his past talks that in Neethaane En Ponvasantham, Samatha has a meaty role to play for . Moreover he said the second part of the movie is from Samantha’s point of view and she will be the one anchoring the movie in the three versions (Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi). However, the director has a new message for those who are yet to watch his movie this festive season.
To much surprise he recently dedicated the movie to his female fans. Recently Gautham has said in a press release “Neethaane En Ponvasantham is a movie for the women, My appeal to women is that they shouldn’t miss out watching the film in theatres“.
It is quite unusual that the Kollywood industry that has been hailed as being male dominated over the years is seeing a shift now thanks to experimental directors like him. Notably in his long list of blockbusters Neethane En Ponvasantham’s female fans have outweighed his male fans that have always looked forward to his romantic themes.
“Samantha’s character Nithya is someone that every girl can relate to” said an excited fan after she saw the movie at a famous theatre in the state.
