Dulquer Salmaan has made his entry into Malayalam films quite memorable with two hits in a row.

His next film from the young hero is debutant director Roopesh Peethambaran's Theevram. The film will reach the screens on Nov 16.

Roopesh, who made his screen debut playing the young Mohanlal in Sphadikam, has gone on record stating that “These days people keep on asking me whether Theevram is a remake of any foreign movie? All I have to say is Theevram is based on true events happened in India and it is mixed with fiction to make it a full on entertainer.”

During these days when copycats thrive shamelessly, here is a director who is talking about original. That needs to be appreciated, right?
