‘3 Idiots’ Tamil remake ‘Nanban’
One of the major Tamil films, Nanban starring Ileana and Vijay has released. Directed by Shankar, the movie is an official remake of 3 Idiots. The film is a Pongal treat in South India.
Nanban’s story needs no explanation. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Vijay, Jeeva, Srikanth and Sathyaraj. Vijay steps into the shoes of Aamir Khan while Jeeva gets to essay the role of Sharman Joshi and narrator Madhavan is played by Srikanth. And Sathyaraj creates the weirdness of Boman Irani’s character of an oddball professor in Nanban. Ileana plays Vijay's ladylove in the movie.
Since Shankar couldn’t get A R Rahman to compose music for the film, he approached Harris Jayaraj because the former was busy with other projects.
The chemistry between Vijay, Jeeva and Srikanth is the film's USP. Vijay is said to have given his career's best performance. Equally pivotal is his chemistry with Ileana.
Have a look at the Nanban stills; the movie is shot beautifully in Europe, Andamans, Chennai and Ooty.
