Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, featuring Shahrukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukherji, Preity Zinta and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead roles, was one of the big Bollywood movies of the year 2006.
The film, directed by Karan Johar marked his third association
with Shahrukh Khan. Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, dealt with a
rather controversial topic, which was received with mixed reviews,
back at that time.
But later, the film went on to receive a cult fan following and
certain section of audiences even rated this movie, as one of the
best of Karan Johar - Shahrukh Khan team.
Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna dealt with the topic of
infidelity and it was rather a bold take on the issue adding all
the necessary elements of a clean family entertainer.
Well, such a theme is something that Mollywood has not tried, in
the save way, so far. What if Kabhi Alvidaa Na Kehna is
remade in Mollywood? Who all would be the perfect replacements for
Shahrukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukherji, Preity Zinta and
Amitabh Bachchan. In this week's Mollywood Retake, we discuss about
this interesting scenario.
Prithviraj As Dev Saran (Shahrukh Khan)
Well it was Shahrukh Khan, who portrayed the role of Dev Saran,
an ex-footballer whose life turns turtle after an accident. Coming
to Mollywood, Prithviraj will be the right option for this role,
filled with a lot of complexities. He is sure to bring in
everything that is required for this sensitive character.
Kunchacko Boban As Rishi Talwar (Abhishek Bachchan)
Abhishek Bachchan had played this role in the original, that of
a loving and caring husband. If a Malayalam remake happens, we feel
that Kunchacko Boban will be apt for this role. He is sure to
perform well in this character, which is one of the well-written
roles in the movie.
Parvathy As Maya Talwar (Rani Mukherji)
Rani Mukherji had effortlessly, played the role of Maya Talwar,
wife of Rishi Talwar. Well, Parvathy is the perfect choice for this
role, which has a lot of scope for performance. She can pull off
this character, with ease.
Bhavana As Rhea Saran (Preity Zinta)
It was Preity Zinta who did the role of Rhea Saran, wife of Dev
Saran in the original version. Now, if ever a remake happens, we
feel that Bhavana is the right option for the role of a working
woman, who runs a family.
Siddique As Sam Talwar (Amitabh Bachchan)
It is always a tough task to find a replacement for a role,
which has been made special by an actor like Amitabh Bachchan. But
still, the role of Sam Talwar, the cool dad of Rishi Talwar, can be
done by Siddique in Malayalam, if ever a remake happens
If such a remake of a film with a bold theme happens, with big actors like Prithviraj, Kunchacko Boban, Suresh Gopi, Parvathy, Bhavana etc., it would definitely be a treat for the Malayalam film audiences.
