It introduced us to two gems of Tollywood
On February 26, 2020, the cult favourite romantic-drama, Ye Maya Chesave completed a decade. Directed by Gautham Menon, this film starred Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. This film gave Chay a better platform to come out as a budding actor while it marked Sam’s debut in the films. Even a decade later, the film continues to our favourite pick and this Throwback Thursday is the perfect time to revisit it.
Watch the film here:
A story that is still relevant and fresh
The story of Ye Maya Chesave revolves around Jesse and Karthik. Jesse is a young working professional from an orthodox Christian family. Karthik, on the other hand, is a student who is living his best life while staying as a paying guest at Jesse’s upstairs apartment. What happens when these oddballs cross path and fall in love?
A music-album that still continues to soothe us
World-renowned musician, AR Rahman has composed music for the film. The film has seven tracks – Vintunnava, Ee Hridayam, Kundappu Bomma, Manasaa, amongst others – still end up being our top picks, no matter what the mood.
Old world romance that never gets old
Times are constantly changing and so are the stories around us. Yet, Ye Maya Chesave continues to spark joy and make us smile with its old-world charm and old school romance. Stolen glances and hidden feelings, we’re still all game for it.
Beginning of a real love story
While Gautham Menon did give us many things with this, the best of all has to be #ChaySam. The two leads who met on the sets for the first time, fell in love and their relationship bloomed into the dreamiest love story of our times.
If for nothing, you must watch this film today for the sake of love!
