Yogi Babu’s heroic venture titled Dharma Prabhu in which he plays the titular character, is hitting the screens 28 June.
“Director of Dharma Prabhu, Muthukumar and myself have been friends for 15 years. We used to live out of my meagre earnings and have gone to sleep without food many times. I am happy that Dharma Prabhu has come to some shape now. I wish him all success,” said Yogi Babu.
Says the filmmaker, “It is a story of Lord Yama played by Radha Ravi who is tired of ruling Yama Loham for one and half lakh years. Since he falls ill, he wants to retire. While Chithraguptan, essayed by Ramesh Thilak, is next in line to adorn the throne, much to everyone’s surprise, Yama makes his son Dharamaprabhu to succeed him. The confusion and galatta that follows is narrated in side-splitting manner. On a certain occasion Dharmaprabhu visits bhooloham and there he sorts out several issues including a problem between a pair of lovers. Janani Iyer plays a crucial cameo.”
Cinematography is by Mahesh Muthusamy and Justin Prabhakaran is the music composer.
