Dwarakish Chithra's new film Charulatha directed by Pon Kumaran who had earlier directed Kiccha Sudeep's film "Vishnuvardhana' has done a remarkable job by getting the remake rights of the Thai Korean film Alone on which Charulatha is based. The Tamil and Telugu versions of the film is produced by different portions.
While most Indian filmmakers including the Kannada film producers copy foreign films without any hesitation and take credit for story and screenplay, we are now seeing a director who has the courage to accept that he is remaking a popular foreign film. Incidentally, Pon Kumaran is also the director and producer of the Telugu and Tamil film.
Charulatha stars Priyamani in two roles of Siamese twins.
Alone (2007) is about a deceased Siamese twin returning to haunt surviving sister. In Charulatha, Priyamani plays the role of conjoined twins. The film is directed by Ponkumaran and it is to be released in Telugu by Geetha Film Distribution.
We should appreciate the makers of Charulatha for buying the rights from original movie instead of copying like scores of other filmmakers.
Incidentally the directors of Chingaari which was based on Korean film Taken and Aarakshaka which was based on Hollywood film Shuters Island had not taken the remake rights of the film.
