Indian audience have witnessed wide-variety of movies that featured our lead actors in twin roles. But the subject on conjoined twins or Siamese twins remained untouched all these years in the multilingual Indian film industry. However, Charulatha starring Priyamani is first of its kind made by renowned Kannada actor-producer Dwarakish.
As the makers of Charulatha claimed, the movie, which is made in four languages, is a remake of Thai movie Alone. For the first time, Priyamani, who was not seen in female-centric projects, has played the role of twins and has completely justified her roles. Charulatha is a suspense-horror-thriller directed by P Kumar, who had earlier directed blockbuster Only Vishnuvardhana starring Sudeep.
