    Once upon a time, hit films in Hindi used to be remade in Malayalam. The trend was completely reversed when Priyadarshan switched his attention to Hindi. Of course, there were some allegations of plagiarism against the director. But, that hasn't stopped him from making a name for himself as a successful director at the box office in Bollywood. Kilukkam, Thaalavattam, Godfather and Ramjirao Speaking were some of the Malayalam superhits that were remade in Hindi.

    Around last year, Priyadarshan came up with a superhit film in Hindi named Maalamaal Weekly. Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav and Reema Sen had played the lead roles. It was a very low-budget film but it managed to outperform many of the big budget flicks that were released that year.

    The film is now going to be remade in Malayalam. Viji Thambi is the director. Actor Jagadeesh returns as scriptwriter. Shrinivasan, Jagadi, Nedumudi Venu and others are going to star in the film.
