Tamil cinema takes inspiration from Bollywood
17th Sept 2008 12.15 IST
We have seen umpteen remakes of South Indian films in Bollywood. Now, the flow is going the other way.
Yes, it’s the south directors, particularly in the Tamil film industry, who are keen to remake a good number of Hindi hits in their native language.
'Poi Solla Porom', remake of Bollywood hit Khosla Ka Ghosla , has turned out to be a box-office success and production houses are now toying with the idea of rehashing other Bollywood flicks.
According to reports, 'Guru En Aalu' is inspired from ‘Yes Boss’, 'Villu' is based on ‘Soldier’, and 'Agean' is a remake of Main Hoon Na . The Tamil remakes also have big stars. For instance, Vijay plays the lead in ‘Villu’ while Ajith is the frontman of ‘Agean’.
Not just this, last year’s Bollywood hit Jab We Met is being adapted in Tamil by Moser Baer. On the other hand, director P. Vasu has plans to remake Shahrukh Khan ’s Baazigar .
However, some Tamil filmmakers are wary of this trend of adapting Bollywood hits. They think it would be a challenge to adapt non-native stories to the tastes of movie buffs downsouth.
