Aankhen, the Bollywood movie, which released in the year 2002, was one of the well-appreciated movies of that year. The film, which had all the elements of a perfect thriller had Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Paresh Rawal, Sushmitha Sen etc., in the lead roles.
Amitabh Bachchan was seen in a never seen before kind of a role in the film directed by Vipul Shah. Same was the case of Akshay Kumar, who got a big hit at that time with this particular movie.
Aankhen, which was a hesist thriller narrated the story of bank employee (played by Amitabh Bachchan), who uses three blind people (Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal & Paresh Rawal) to carry out a heist in the bank in which he worked.
Well, the theme of the movie definitely looks interestng, isn't it? Now, what if the film is remade in Malayalam? The story and theme definitely looks quite suitable for a Mollywood remake and if such a remake happens, who all would be the perfect choice to replace Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Arjun Rampal and others? In this week's Mollywood Retake, we discuss about this interesting scenario. Read on..
Prithviraj As Vishwas Prajapati (Akshay Kumar)
The character of Vishwas Prajapati, one of the pawns used by Vijay(Amitabh Bachchan) in his mission was done by Akshay Kumar in the original. He is the brave and most intelligent one among the lot. If a remake happens, Prithviraj will be the apt choice for this character, which has good scope of performance in the movie.
Suresh Gopi As Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan)
A real powerful character, which was taken to another level by Amitabh Bachchan. The character of Vijay Singh Rajput has some grey shades and it is this character who is the mastermind behind the heist plans. Coming to Mollywood, we feel that Suresh Gopi would excel in this particular role and in a different getup he is sure to nail in with his performance.
Tovino Thomas As Arjun Verma (Arjun Rampal)
The character of Arjun Verma is quite a pivotal one in the movie. He is one among the three, who are about carry out the mission in the bank. If it was Arjun Rampal who did the role in the original, we feel that in case of a remake, Tovino Thomas will be perfect for this role.
Suraj Venjaramoodu As Illyas (Paresh Rawal)
The character of Ilyas does provide some comical relief in between. But still, this particular character portrayed by Paresh Rawal in the original has some emotional sequences as well. In case of a remake, Suraj Venjaramoodu will fit in perfectly to this role of the third member in the gang.
Mamtha Mohandas As Neha (Sushmita Sen)
Neha is the one who has been entitled with the job of training the three blind people. It was Sushmita Sen who did this role in the original. In case the movie is remade in Malayalam, we feel that Mamtha Mohandas will be the most suitable actress for this role.
