Santosh Subramaniam is a forthcoming 2008 Tamil musical and romantic film which
is directed and co-written by Raja while Kalaprathi S. Agoram produces the film.
While Jayam Ravi and Genelia D'Souza play the lead roles, Prakash Raj and Geetha,
prominent actors from the south Indian film industry, played the significant
roles of one of the lead character's parents in the movie. The film, which is a
remake of the Telugu language blockbuster, Bommarillu, had several production
companies vying to grab the remake rights of the film, eventually falling to
Mohan, who is the father of the director and the actor, as well as the editor
for the film.
The film primarily revolves around a father and son relationship with the
father's dote on his son ironically leaving a bitter taste with the latter. The
son's choices and his wants to achieve something in life are always subdued by
his father's. The father has a justification in the form of his dream, that is
to build a dream house . When it comes to his son's marriage, the son breaks his
shackles of respect only to experience the newly found independence. The film
concludes with the father's repentance on his foolishness and the happy marriage
of the protagonists.
