Sithara Entertainments has become one of the successful production house in Tollywood after delivering few super hits such as Premam, Jersey and Bheeshma. As is known, Premam was remake of Malayalam blockbuster of the same title. Now, Sithara Entertainments has bought remake rights of two more Malayalam films.
Ayyappanum Koshiyum and Kappela remakes will be next projects from the production house. Ravi Teja and Rana are being considered to play lead roles in Ayyappanum Koshiyum remake. Kappela remake will be made with two young heroes. Directors for both the films will also be announced soon.
Ayyappanum Koshiyum was a smashing hit in Malayalam and the film is available in Amazon Prime Video. On the other hand, Kappela is streaming on Netflix and many people watched this film as well during lockdown.
Can we call it as a safe bet or risky move by the production house? We must say that, it is a risky move given people compare the remake version with original. Most of the remakes in last few years turned out to be flops, except for counted number of films.
While Ayyappanum Koshiyum remake needs to be trimmed for at least half an hour besides making few changes in script, Kappela requires a sensible director to helm it and young and charming heroes to feature in it.
Let’s see whether Sithara Entertainments consider all these factors?
