Nayanthara’s Malayalam movie ‘Elektra’ is all set to be dubbed and released in Telugu. The Tollywood version has been titled ‘Lady Tiger’.
Produced by Suresh Dudala, ‘Lady Tiger’ will hit the screens in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana soon.
‘Elektra’ is a 2010 psychological drama film co-written and directed by Shyamaprasad, starring Nayantara, Manisha Koirala, Prakash Raj, Biju Menon and Skanda Ashok.
The film is based on the story of the Greek mythological character Electra, although it has a contemporary setting in an aristocratic family in Kerala. It draws strongly on four adaptations of the myth: Electra by Sophocles, Electra by Euripides, Oresteia by Aeschylus and Mourning Becomes Electra by Eugene O’Neill.
Key to the film is the concept of the Electra complex; a daughter’s psychosexual competition with her mother for her father’s affection. A rueful journey into the bruised familial bonds of an aristocratic household in Central Kerala, the film explores desire and loss.
