It seems to have become a trend in Malayalam cinema to remake yesteryear hits for the present. Lal Jose recently did the remake of the yesteryear movie Neelathamara, which too was a hit this time too. Vikkanundu Swapnangal that cast Sukumaran, Sreevidhya, Sudheer and Jalaja in the lead roles was a massive hit movie. Prithviraj is said to had talks with M T Vasudevan Nair, to work on the scripts. The movie will be directed by Azad.
