Kollywood busy with remakes
There was a time when Kollywood used to give enough material for remakes. But of late, things are changing. It's busy remaking movies from other industries.
Recently, the remake of Nani's 'Bhale Bhale Mogadivoy' was released. Titled 'Ghajinikanth', it stars Arya. Samantha Akkineni is doing the Tamil-Telugu remake of the Kannada film 'U-Turn'. Jyothika is acting in a remake of the Hindi-language film 'Tumhari Sulu'.
The most interesting remake has to be Bala's 'Varma', which is a remake of Vijay Deverakonda's 'Arjun Reddy'. It's astonishing that an original director like Bala is wielding the megaphone for a remake.
Radha Mohan recently signed up Prakash Raj and Vikram Prabhu for a film titled '60 Vayadhu Maaniram', which is a remake of the Kannada-language film 'Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu'.
