Itha Oru Snehagatha is a 1997 Indian Malayalam romance film, written and directed by Captain Raju. The film stars himself, Vikram, and Laila in the leading roles. It was dubbed and released in Tamil as Thrill in May 2002, shortly after the success of Dhill, in which Vikram and Laila had featured.[1]

Plot

Church Father Daniel (Captain Raju) is appointed as the junior priest of the town church and subsequently tries to unite the warring population of Hindus and Christians in the town. The Christians are led by Kariyachan (K. P. A. C. Sunny) and Mathayichan (Rajan P. Dev), while the Hindus from the town are led by Raman Nair (Kollam Thulasi). Father Daniel forms a music troupe called "Rhythm Orchestra" along with the cross-religion lovers Roy (Vikram) and Hema (Laila), trying to unite them. Meanwhile, Father Daniel faces stiff opposition from various quarters.

Release

In 2002, following the success of the Vikram-Laila starrer Dhill (2001), Golden Cine Creations chose to dub the film into Tamil and release it to make the most of Vikram's rising popularity.[2] When enquired about his opinion on his old films being dubbed and re-released, Vikram revealed that he had no problem as such films had given him work during the struggling phase of his career. A song with lyrics featuring the titles of Vikram's other films was prepared for the Tamil version.[3]
