Naanun Rowdy Dhaan, the Tamil movie, featuring Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara in the lead roles, was one of the biggest hits of the year 2015. The film, which was an entertainer with a difference, catered well to all sections of the audiences.
The story of the movie revolved around a wannabe gangster (Vijay Sethupathi) and what happens when he meets a deaf girl Kadhambiri (Nayanthara), who is out to avenge the death of her father.
Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara were in top form in this entertainer, packaged excellently by Vignesh Sivan. Naanum Rowdy Dhaan was bankrolled by actor Dhanush under the banner Wunderbar films. The songs of the film set to music by Anirudh Ravichander too, went on to top the charts.
Well, the film had a rather interesting storyline, which can be adapted to the land of Kerala, as well. What if this Vijay Sethupathi starrer is remade in Malayalam? Who all can be the perfect choices to replace Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara and other actors of the movie, in case of such a remake?
In this week's Mollywood Retake, we discuss about this interesting scenario..
Nivin Pauly As Pandian (Vijay Sethupathi)
Well, Vijay Sethupathi was at his supreme best with the portrayal of Pandi, who dreams to become a rowdy, one day. The role has some comical shades, as well and was devoid of any super hero elements.
Coming to Mollywood, we feel that this particular character will be safe in the hands of Nivin Pauly. He can definitely add that required simplicity to this character.
Nayanthara As Kadhamabari (Nayanthara)
In fact, we simply can't imagine anybody else in this particular role. Nayanthara was fabulous in the role of Kadhambari, a girl who seeks revenge. One would get to feel for the character, such was the way in which she portrayed this role. Even if a Malayalam remake happens, she should remain the perfect choice for this role.
Anoop Menon As Ghillivalavan (Parthiban)
Ghillivalavan is the main antagonist of this story. This well-written villain character has some comic shades as well, and in fact, Ghilli is a towering presence in the movie.
It was Parthiban, who played the role in the original. Now, if ever a remake happens, we feel that Anoop Menon shall be a good choice for the role. He, with his stylish presentation, can take the character to another level.
Aju Varghese As Doshi Baba (RJ Balaji)
If it was RJ Balaji who played Doshi, the best buddy of Pandi in Naanum Rowdy Dhaan, we feel that Aju Varghese shall be the perfect option for that particualr role, if ever this film is remade in Malayalam. The Nivin Pauly-Aju Varghese chemistry is sure to rock the screen, as usual.
Nadiya Moidu As Meena Kumari (Raadhika Sarathkumar)
Inspector Meena Kumari, is the mother of Paandi, who wants her son to become a police officer. This pivotal role in the movie was portrayed by Radhika Sarathkumar and if ever a Mollywood remake happens, Nadiya Moidu can be a good choice for this role, which has good scope for performance.
