Pappayude Swantham Appoos, the 1992-released Mammootty
starrer has been considered as the one of best family dramas of
1990's. The movie, which depicted the story of a workaholic widower
and his neglected son, was directed by Fazil.
Suresh Gopi made an extended cameo appearance in the movie,
which featured Shobana and Seena Dadi in the female leads.
Pappayude Swantham Appoos still remains as one of the
most-loved Mammootty films of all-time.
Here we list the names of the actors, whom we feel are
the perfect choices to replace Mammootty and others if
Pappayude SwanthamAppoos is remade
Prithviraj as Balachandran
Mammootty's portrayal of Balachandran, the depressed, workaholic
widower who neglects his only son Appoos, was widely appreciated by
the audiences and critics. If the movie is being remade now,
Prithviraj will be the right choice for the role.
Kunchacko Boban as Dr.
Suresh Gopi made an extended cameo appearance in the movie as
Dr. Gopan, Balachandran's best friend who discovers
Appu's ailing health condition. From the current slot,
Kunchacko Boban can do complete justice to this role of a caring
Nyla Usha as Bhama, Appu's
Shobana appeared as Bhama, Balachandran's late wife and Appu's
mother, in the original. If Pappayude Swantham Appoos is
getting remade now, Nyla Usha will be a good choice for the role of
the doting mother who prepares video messages for her young son
before she dies.
Rajisha Vijayan as
Meenakshi is the girl who comes to Balachandran's house as the
carer of Appoos. She develops a strong bonding with Appoos, who
finds a mother and best friend in her. The role, which was played
by Seena Dadi in the original, is a tailor-made one for Rajisha
Master Eric Zachariah as
Eric Zachariah stole the hearts of the audiences with his
performance as Sameera's son in the recently released movie
Take Off. If Pappayude Swantham Appoos is being
remade now, he will be a great choice to play the titular character
Appoos, which was played by Badusha in the original.
Pappayude Swantham Appoos, which was scripted by
director Fazil himself, featured an ensemble star cast including
Sankaradi, KPAC Sunny, TP Madhavan, Kaviyoor Ponnamma, Ravindran,
Santhakumari, Subair, etc.
Young actor Fahadh Faasil made his acting debut as a child
artist with the movie, by playing the role of Appoos's friend in
the movie. Badusha, who played the titular character Appoos,
won the Kerala State Award for the Best Child Artist, for his
performance in the movie.
Interestingly, the role of Dr. Gopan was originally supposed to
be played by the National award winner Murali. But the actor backed
out due his other work commitments, and the team went on to rope in
Suresh Gopi for the role.
Ilaiyaraaja composed the songs and background score for the
movie, which was produced by Khais. Pappayude Swantham
Appoos, which was a major commercial success, had completed
200 days at the releasing centres.
