    Veteran director KS Sethumadhavan's movie Chattakkari, which was released in 1974, has become a big hit at the Box Office. It has been remade in other languages and seen success in them also. Now, Sethumadhavan's son Santhosh has planned to remake the super-hit film in Malayalam.

    The remake of Chattakkari is being produced by G Suresh Kumar under the banner of Revathi Kalamandhir. Suresh Kumar's recent productions like Neelathaamara and Rathinirvedam are the remakes of two super hit films. The success of these movies has boosted his confidence to remake Chattakkari.

    Chattakkari was based on Pamman's famous novel of the same name and Thoppil Bhasi had written the script for it. The movie is a love story of an Anglo-Indian girl (Lakshmi) and a Hindu boy (Mohan), who consummate the relationship. She has a child out-of-wedlock in secret. In addition to its Box Office success, the movie had also won a few Filmfare and Kerala State Film awards.

    However, Chattakkari was remade as Julie in Hindi as Miss Julie Prema Katha in Telugu in 1975. Actress Lakshmi was the heroine in both versions. Suresh Kumar said, “This film tells a love story and has a message to convey." Now, this Malayalam remake will be shot in Goa. Hit song of the film Julie, 'Julie O my Darling...' will be included in this version and M Jayachandran will score music for the other songs for the new version.
