its the same film
11 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

actually you've got it wrong this film was first made in Tamil as Minsara Kanavu but due to its success it was dubbed in Telugu as Merupu Kalalu and Hindi Sapnay so thats why its the same as Sapnay , Sapnay is a dubbed version of Minsara Kanavu. The film was a Major success and the music won the music composer A.R Rahman Best Music Director award for the second time after the hit Roja,also Prabhu Deva won the Silver Lotus Award for Best Choreography . this film is a classic by any account and definitely worth a watch ...the music is heavenly and the acting by Kajol ,Arivind Samy and Prabhu Deva is filled with chemistry and connection ....a must see
