The film, which released in the year 1986, revolves around the murder mystery of a popular film-maker named Harikrishnan (Mammootty) and the subsequent investigation that happens. Apart from Mammootty, Mohanlal and Rahman, the film also featured actors like Sripriya, Karthika, Unni Mary etc., in pivotal roles.
Kariyilakkattu Pole was quite different from Padmarajan's movies of those days and the storyline of the movie is such that, a remake of the film is quite feasible, even now.
But, who can replace Mammootty, Mohanlal and others, if ever such a remake happens? In this week's Past To Present, we discuss about this interesting scenario. Read on..
Biju Menon As Harikrishnan
Harikrishnan, is a well-known senior film-maker, who also has the 'womanizer' tag. The character goes through two different timelines in the movie and Mammootty had portrayed this role exceptionally well. If ever a remake happens, we feel that Biju Menon will be the apt choice for this role. With his good looks and strong acting capabilities he is sure to make the role a memorable one.
Fahadh Faasil As Achuthankutty
Achuthankutty is a police officer, who is in charge of the murder case of Harikrishnan. It was one of the early police officer roles in the acting career of Mohanlal and he had done the role with ease. In case a remake happens, the best choice for this role would be Fahadh Faasil, who would fit in perfectly to the shoes of a smart investigation officer.
Shane Nigam As Anil Kumar
All those who have watched Kariyilakkattu Pole would know how pivotal this role was. Actor Rahman had portrayed this role of Anil Kumar, who is the younger brother of Achuthankutty. Coming to the new age actors, we feel that Shane Nigam would be the apt choice for this role, if a remake happens.
Namitha Pramod As Shilpa
In Kariyilakattu Pole, Karthika had portrayed the role of Shilpa, who is a big fan of director Harikrishnan. Coming to the new generaton of actors, this role of a young and vibrant character would be safe in the hands of Namitha Pramod.
Asha Sharath As Shilpa's Mother
The role of Shilpa's mother, portrayed by yesteryear actress Sripriya, is a very crucial one in the movie. It is a character filled with lot of suspense elements and if a remake happens, it definitely requires an actress of good calibre. At present, only Asha Sarath can fit in perfectly to this role, which is a powerful one.
Well, Kariyilakkattu Pole had Mammootty and Mohanlal in full-form and the movie is considered to be one of the best works of this combo.
If a remake happens, with the above mentioned star cast, it would be a real treat to watch talented actors like Biju Menon and Fahadh Faasil in full throttle.
