Fazhil’s malayalam superhit Manichitrathazhu becomes Chandramukhi in tamil. What could be a more welcoming move than this ?
If Manichitrathazhu can be judged as one of the best yester-year classic, it’s adaptation should be sized-up more than it. This is second Fazhil‘s film being adapted for Rajini, the first one being Thenmaavin Kombathu which was re-made as Muthu, a few years back.
I have often wondered why Manichitrathazhu, was never re-made into tamil. Mohanlal‘s psychiatrist role can feed Kamalhassan‘s quest for better roles. Now, when it is adapted for Rajini, it would probably change to acknowledge Rajini’s image in Tamil Nadu but we can be sure it will be outright entertainer. Finally, a Rajini fan’s wish for a full-time comedy movie is met. Happy.
