Prithviraj and Biju Menon starred together in the recently released Ayyappanum Koshiyum, which was directed by Sachy. This action thriller’s story revolves around the conflict between Ayyappan Nair (Biju Menon), a Sub-inspector and Koshy Kurien (Prithviraj), an influential and ex-Havildar. Despite having a runtime of close to 3 hours, the film got highly positive reviews from the general audience and critics for its highly engaging screenplay and exciting face-offs between the lead actors. Following the success, it has now been revealed that this Malayalam film will be remade into Tamil.


Producer S Kathiresan of Five Star Creations LLP (producer of Jigarthanda, Aadukalam and Polladhavan) has acquired the remake rights and will soon be making it in Tamil. We will have to wait for a few more days to know who is going to reprise the roles played by Prithviraj and Biju Menon. It is going to be exciting to see two leading actors from Kollywood, face off against each other on-screen and let us hope the remake is done faithfully without any dilution.


On bagging the rights, Kathiresan says, “Just like any other audience, I was completely spellbound watching the film. Only a few films possess the traits, where every element contributed to keeping us engaged from beginning to end. The script, the backdrops where the premise is set, the narrative part, beautiful visuals and more than all, the astounding performances of every character compelled to watch the film over and again.


More than feeling happy about acquiring the film’s rights, it’s the excess responsibility, where we have to translate the film with proper native adaptation and do justice to the original version. We are now holding talks with leading actors and technicians and will be soon making an official announcement once finalized.
