Malayalam cinema is frequently making headlines in the southern region with films consistently crossing the ₹100-crore mark in terms of revenue.

When a quality movie is released in Malayalam, audiences flock to theatres. The mania that Premalu and Manjummel Boys have created was massive even in Telugu states.

And now, another Malayalam film that gained popularity on the OTT platform is being remade in Telugu.

Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey, starring Darshana Rajendran and Basil Joseph in the lead roles, is being remade in Telugu as a family action entertainer.

Directed by Vipin Das, the film will now be remade in Telugu by S Originals and MovieVerse Studios, India.

Actor-director Tharun Bhascker and Eesha Rebba will play the lead roles in it.

It is learnt director AR Sajeev has made some lively changes in Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey to suit the Telugu nativity. The movie title and first look will be released soon.

Tharun Bhaskar, known for his directing skills, is also passionate about acting.

Currently, the Telugu remake of Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey is being shot in Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradesh. The movie is likely to be released in October.

The story revolves around Jayabharati (Darshana Rajendran), an independent girl eager to pursue higher studies after her Intermediate education.

Despite facing challenges, she manages to convince her family and earns her degree. However, an unexpected incident forces her to marry and put her studies on hold.

Post-marriage, Jayabharati aspires to continue her education and secure a job, a promise made by her husband Rajesh (Basil Joseph) during their wedding. However, Rajesh changes his stance and becomes increasingly irritable and unsupportive.

After years of patience, Jayabharati finally stands up for herself when a video of her confronting Rajesh goes viral. The film delves into the events that unfold thereafter.
