I read about two upcoming movies which ultimately provided the scoop for this post...So lemme start by saying big thanks to the producers of those two and also producers of movies of these sort(i mean remakes)...I dedicate this to all film-makers who narrowly escaped from 1 metre rope and poison bottle even after doing remakes...I also wish producers of these 2 movies(Kanden Kadhalai and yet to be titled telugu Happy days remake) Best of luck to escape the above threat...


I know very well that it is totally unfair to criticize a movie which is yet to be released...No one can decide or predict a movie's success... Despite that, I was resorted to write this since i liked the original versions of these movies frame to frame... I don't believe the remake can match(they may be good but can never match the original) the original versions no matter how hard they try?...well, I will clarify these lines as i proceed?... Lemme put forth my theory...

To be frank, both those movies do not have a smart or mind-blowing story but what made them an up roaring hit was a kind of magic i can say..A magic as a result of confluence of right kind of people who were given right kinda job...For example take Jab we met, that was a normal story but the lead pair,director and composer have made it a plum entertainer...Especially a considerable part of the credit goes to kareena kapoor..that character was tailor made for her... nutty,freaky and sometimes philosophical...(in short tat role required a ara loosu,and obviously kareena was perfect for that :P)...

Her performance stood out in some scenes like in a scene where she asks shahid to elope with her sister and the deal she makes with shahid (like vadivel ..Andha deal enaku pudichirundhudhu) ,the small portion in the hotel and few others i could say....Just imagine Thamanna in this character... Must be a biggest Disaster...(endha dhairyathula indha characterku book paningalo)...In trailers also i saw her trying to imitate kareena which is quite artificial...On the other side if you take shahid, he played his part as an Angry young man well...I don't know how much Bharath can do....I heard muzic of this movie that too was good but not great..

And coming to Happy days i don't know how they decided to remake that..In telugu the comical supporting characters and the college backdrop of the film rescued that movie from a collapse.. Especially the two characters one who stalks his senior girl(the canteen scene was good..superapu.) and the one who flirts with his lecturer really helped the movie to move forward...(hero and heroine were like dummy piece..) romantic scenes were a big yawning...tamil remake of this..Hmmm...may this Rest in peace...

These kinda remakes simply reflects the scarcity of creativity...Either the directors or story writers go for remakes or they simply steal stories and scenes from hollywood ...And now we are witnessing the collapse of big budget films(like kandhasami) which don't have any real story(those tricks of punch dialogues and action tricks wont work) and clean sweep of box office by small budget movies with good and original storyline...Example eeram and Peranmai..inimelum makkala ematha mudiyathu..

I heard that the movie peraanmai is great...The director of the movie S.P.Jananathan is known for off beat movies with social message..he has proved it once again So makers of this sort are the need of the hour...Please don't kill with remakes especially one actor is waiting for mahesh babu to make a film so that he can remake in tamil. (anna podhungna ..unga imsaiya inimelum thanga mudiyadungna)...


Note:Finally directors if u don't have a good story u can always approach me..(unga padangala pakum podhu enaku oru confidence kedaikdhu...neengala panumbodhu naa panna matena... :P)..But on a serious note,i had a storyline in my mind but unfortunately that same story is filmed by some director it seems...When i read about that in a magazine...i felt bad...But don't worry i have lot of stories...( Steven Speilbergs,mani rathnams be careful :P
