As we are aware, Telugu hit film 'Majili' is being remade in Marathi as 'Ved'. While Naga Chaitanya and Samantha played the lead roles in the original, it is Ritesh Deshmukh and Genelia who are main actors in the remake. A video clip from the Marathi went viral in social media recently and people are heavily trolling the remake for the song and the artificialness in the picturization.
Now, comparisons are being drawn between Samantha and Genelia who played the female lead role. Samantha did a brilliant job in the movie and she is the biggest highlight of 'Majili' without a doubt. Her emotional performance was loved by many. Despite her health situation, Samantha is still one of the top stars in South India.
Genelia has been away from acting for a long time and she is a mother of three kids. She is slowly making her comeback into the movies. Genelia is a huge star in the South even before Samantha came into the industry. The cute actress came into the industry during her teens and became a big star at a very early age. She acted in many memorable movies like 'Bommarillu', 'Dhee', 'Ready' and many more. She is the epitome of cuteness at one point in time.
Coming to 'Majili', Samantha did a great job and the 'Priyathama' song brought a lot of feel to the situation. The 'Besuri' song used in the Marathi version is not that good according to many viewers. Compared to Chay and Sam, the audience pointed out that Ritesh and Genelia are looking much older and have failed to pull off the young look. They looked a bit odd in the school uniforms according to many. Though Genelia's cuteness is intact, the age is starting to show up on her face especially in the close-up shots.
While some say Samantha did better than Genelia, the others claim that one should not jump into any conclusions before watching the movie. What do you think?
