The film, that featured Madhavan, Abbas and Reema Sen in the lead roles did handle a universal subject. Gautham Vasudeva Menon came up with this refreshing tale of romance, that hit the right chords with the audiences.
In fact, this film holds a good prospect for a Malayalam remake. In fact, Minnale did go on to become quite popular in Kerala, as well. The storyline of the movie and the characters are easily adaptable to our terrain as well.
But, who all would be the apt choices for the roles of Madhavan, Abbas and Reema Sen, if Minnale gets remade to Malayalam? In this week's Mollywood Retake, we discuss about this interesting scenario.
Dulquer Salmaan As Rajesh
The role of Rajesh has two dimensions. One is that a troublemaker college student, and in the latter part of the story character goes on to become an IT professional who falls for a girl. Well, Dulquer Salmaan is the apt choice for this role originally portrayed by Madhavan in the original. He can bring in both the charming as well as the rugged nature of the character with full effect.
Madonna Sebastian As Reena Joseph
Madonna Sebastian is the apt choice for the role of Reena Joseph, portrayed by Reema Sen in the original. Reena Joseph is a matured and rather serious girl, who is an introvert when it comes to her feelings. Madonna Sebastian is sure to make this role perfect and the pair of Dulquer Salmaan and Madonna would definitely look great on-screen.
Unni Mukundan As Rajiv Samuel
Coming to the other important role of the movie, Rajiv Samuel who was once the rival of Rajesh during their college days. Rajiv is a studious, well-mannered guy and the role was portrayed by Abbas in the original. Unni Mukundan will fit in perfectly to this role and the face-off between Dulquer Salmaan and Unni Mukundan would be a definite treat to watch.
Aju Varghese As Rajesh's Friend
Vivek played a pivotal role in the film, that of Rajesh's close friend Chokkalingam. If a remake ever happens in Malayalam, we feel that Aju Varghese would be the perfect choice for this role. Moreover, we haven't seen the combo of Dulquer Salmaan and Aju Varghese much in the films.
If such a remake happens with the above mentioned cast, the film would be a sure bet at the box office. It would be a kind of a reunion for Dulquer Salmaan and Unni Mukundan, who had teamed up for the film Vikramadithyan.
