Suresh Gopi's hugely successful film, Chintamani Kola Case, released a couple of years back, is travelling places. The film is currently being remade in Tamil as Ellaam Avan Seyal by commercial entertainer Shaji Kailash, who directed the Malayalam original.
Now, the film is to be remade in Hindi too. However, the director for the Bollywood version will be K.S. Adhiyamaan, an acclaimed director in Tamil, with his films Sornamukhi and Thotta Sinungi receiving rave reviews. He also directed Priyasakhi with Madhavan and Sada, which was a commercial hit.
The director's recent release is Thoondil with a bold theme. It has also found favour with critics. Adhiyamaan is a known face in Bollywood having already made two films with Salman Khan. However, the remake will have Sunny Deol in Suresh Gopi's role. One hopes the director would make the Hindi version too a success like the original.
