Remakes and Ravi have become inseparable. After the back to back Telugu remakes Jeyam and M Kumaran S/O Mahalakshmi, Ravi is busy with Mazhai, yet again a remake of Telugu hit Varsham.

In Mazhai, Ravi is  paired with Shriya, a busy actress in Tollywood these days. The actress made a vain attempt to enter Kollywood through Ennakku 20 Unakku 18. A steamy kiss scene between him and Shriya has also kept the film rags agog for some time.
Playback singers S P Balasubramaniam and his son S P B Charan produce the film. The duo had earlier produced Unnai Charan Adainthen last year.

Newcomer Rajkumar, who had a stint with directors like Vasanth and Charan, is directing Mazhai.

Music is by  Devi Sri Prasad with cinematography by Rajesh Yadhav and editing by Anthony.

Venkat Prabhu, Kalabhavan Mani, Vadivel, Charlie and Ambika are also in the cast.

The movie is said to be an action-packed romantic entertainer, says Rajkumar. It's all about a hero falling in love with a young girl. Enters the villain and the rest is all action. A typical formula film. But pictured in a poetic manner, he adds. Interestingly, rain plays an important role in this movie.

The film has shades of Hindi hit Tezaab starring Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit.

The Telugu version titled Varsham starring Prabhas and Trisha set a new trend in Tollywood. The movie not just collected huge revenue but established Prabhas and Trisha as successful artistes to reckon with there. It was almost a cult movie there.

Will Mazhai repeat the magic of Varsham?

Jeyam Ravi surely thinks so.
