Superhits equal Dennis Joseph. ‘Dennis Joseph was also the name of the pen that stirred theaters with super hits in Malayalam cinema. Mammootty’s film career has taken a big turn. Krishnamurthy is one of them. There is an incident where Rajinikanth, who liked watching movies, approached Dennis and asked for the movie. His writing was worth so much gold. The shocking victory of New Delhi at that time was the talk of South India as a whole. Mammootty’s big comeback. A story that is sure to be a resounding success in any language. More than anything else, Rajinikanth aspired to be GK, taking on characters that would find a place in the hands of the people. So he went to see Dennis Joseph. While staying in Chennai, I received a phone call from the hotel. That a VIP has arrived to see you. The guest was the real Rajinikanth. Rajinikanth came to see the rights for the Hindi remake of New Delhi. But by then, the remake rights of the Kannada, Telugu, and Hindi versions of the film had been sold. He recently shared the story of the Rajinikanth film that went unnoticed.
New Delhi, Nirakuttu is a collaboration between Joshi, Dennis, me, and producer Joy Thomas. On the day of the New Delhi release, we were in Nairzab’s shoot in Kashmir. Call home and get no phone. When I finally booked the trunk call, I found out that the local theaters were crowded in Poorapparamba. We hugged each other in the cold that day. Occasionally, Dennis would move away from writing. When he tried to be active, he told another story. Never before has a separation like this shaken me. The gloomy separation of the dark ages again. The brother-like friend who was with me in growth and depression is no more, and he will be remembered through all the films he wrote and directed. I wish you eternal peace
