Ravichandran directed Hoo is not an out-and-out remake of Vasantham. The clarification
came from the Crazy Star himself. “For producer Dinesh Gandhi and Basavaraj, Hoo is the remake of Vasantham but I have taken only one point from that story and have eveloped Hoo’s story to my requirements.
Even unnecessary scenes play an important role here. I have compared friendship to a flower in Hoo (flower)...

The film depicts how the flower withers from within, how it endures pain in a familiar way,” said Ravi, who seemed to be in a thoughtful mood. The reason soon became clear. “I was not keen on remakes. But that would mean almost no roles! So, I decided to take up offers that would allow me the freedom to change the story suitably. This Hoo will spread its fragrance far and wide,” he smiled.

Tamil films’ hot property Namitha chose to do the film because, “Ravi sir doesn’t make cheap roles and films. I play his wife in the film which also has good music, like my first film with Ravi sir, Neelakantha. It is also rare for me to don a housewife’s role!,” Namitha beamed with a sparkle in her eye. The Crazy Star also played one of his songs, “Sarigama sari midimidi...” and then said, “there are several similarities in the music I compose and which Hari (Harikrishna) has composed.” (Hit composer of 2009 V Harikrishna, as everyone knows has assisted Ravi Chandran for several years in music).

Cinematographer Seetharam was rather quite and Ravi was forced to take up the mike. “He has been with me since Halli Meshtru days. He picks up all my signals and intentions just by gesture. I am relaxed when he is around,” the proud director said of his favourite cinematographer.

Producer Dinesh Gandhi recalled how he loved to watch Ravi’s films as a young boy, while Basavaraj, the other producer smiled away quietly.
