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
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
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
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.
