Priyadarshan is struggling to remove ‘Remake’ tag from ‘Oppam’ – Movie Mint

Priyadarshan is struggling to remove ‘Remake’ tag from ‘Oppam’

Sharing is caring!


Though he is a Mallu by birth, director Priyadarshan is well known in Bollywood, Kollywood and Tollywood too. Not only for making films in other languages but for his track record in ‘remaking films’. If you pull up the list, you rarely find original scripts and nothing negative about it. He mastered the art of converting international subjects and making them adoptable to the locals.

But this practice has become a problem now! Priyadarshan and Mohan Lal’s Crime fiction Oppam is getting ready for Onam release. Due to his past films, everyone is thinking Oppam is a remake or inspired story from any other film too. Though Priyadarshan is clearing it whenever this discussion is happening in front of him but not everyone talks in his presence, do they? So, according to this Kalimannu director, Oppam is purely an original thought and not a single scene is inspired or taken from any other film.  Samuthirakani, Anusree, Nedumudi Venu are playing important roles in this film, while Vimala Raman will be seen as female lead. Priyadarshan will be making this film in Bollywood as well.
