The title word Mudhugauv is taken from the film Thenmavin Kombathu directed by Priyadarshan and starred by Mohanlal years back.
Sandra Thomas said that people of Kerala first heard this word through that movie. Also this film follows a pattern of Priyadarshan-Mohanlal team’s comedy films and that is also become a reason to dedicate this film to them. In fact, they wanted to launch this film Muthugow in the presence of Mohanlal and Priyadarshan. But due to some technical reasons and busy schedules of Mohanlal, that did not happened. So they dropped the plan of a launching ceremony. Instead of that, they dedicated this film to the evergreen combo of Mohanlal and Priyadarshan as a token of their gratitude and admiration for this team.
Mudhugauv is a word which means Kiss and it is first used in Thenmavin Kombathu in Mollywood. Mohanlal and Shobhana are the ones who uttered this word in that movie and it is still popular here. The sound clips from Thenmavin Kombathu is also used in this film Muthugow to get the desired effect.
