Rather, call it unpredictable results as very often scenarios remains static. Remakes aren’t about tasting delicious éclairs for the filmmakers as it really demands whole lot of potentials to bring out the best outputs. It can perhaps draw two verdicts – ‘worst remake’ or ‘better than the best’.
Vijay’s ‘Ghilli’ fell into the latter category as it outperformed Mahesh Babu’s ‘Okadu’ and it wasn’t the same with his other films. Precisely, the Telugu blockbuster ‘Atanokkade’ remade as ‘Aadhi’ had adverse results. In all likelihood, many films turned to gross with irregular results.
Let’s get it simple with the recent remake of ‘Nadodigal’ in Telugu as ‘Sambo Siva Sambo’. The Tamil version was labeled as ‘Blockbuster of 2009’ while some critics termed the remake as a disappointing movie and so was Dhanush starrer ‘Kutty’ – a replica of Allu Arjun’s ‘Kutty’.
Out on an experimental trait, producer R.B. Choudary of Super Good Films has remade ‘Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu’ as ‘Bhimli Kabaddi Jattu’. The film features Nani and Saranya Mohan in lead roles with Selvaganesh scoring music with few adapted score from his original version.
On pars, Ravi Teja’s ‘Kick’ remake in Tamil titled ‘Thillalangadi’ is fast on heels of completion. Well, both these remakes will doubtlessly travel on an unpredictable track and we wish them all the success for both films to do well.
