Mammootty has some real under-rated movies to his credit, especially some movies which released in the 1990's. One among them is Joshiy's Kuttettan, which had Mammootty in the lead role.
The film, which released in the year 1990, had elements of comedy in it and Mammootty proved that he can handle comedy with ease. Mammootty played the role of a married man in his 40's, who is a flirt.
It was the kind of role to which Mammootty was completely new, but the actor accepted the challenge and performed a fine job. But disappointingly, the film wasn't a real big success. But later on, Kuttettan fetched a huge fan following.
The film has a good entertainment value and does hold good prospects for a remake. What if Mammootty's Kuttettan is remade now? Who can replace Mammootty, Saritha, Jagadish and others in such a possible remake? We discuss about this interesting scenario in this week's Past To Present.
Biju Menon As Vishnu Narayanan aka Kuttettan (Mammootty)
The role of Kuttettan in the movie was effortlessly handled by Mammooty in the original. If a remake happens, we feel that Biju Menon would be the right choice for the role. Be it the acting talent or good looks, the actor suits the role completely. In the comedy sequences, Biju Menon is sure to impress one and all.
Lena As Seetha (Saritha)
Seetha, the wife of Kuttettan, is an innocent home-maker, who trusts and loves her husband blindly. Saritha portrayed this role pretty well in the original version. If remade now, we feel that actress Lena can do this role perfectly. She is sure to shine in this role, which has good scope of performance.
Aju Varghese As Gopalakrishnan (Jagadish)
In Kuttettan, Jagadish was the one who portrayed this role of the driver-cum-assistant of Vishnu. Mammootty-Jagadish combo did provide some genuine laughs in the movie. At present, Aju Varghese is the one who will fit in to this role completely. Moreover, Biju Menon-Aju Varghese combo will strike big time as they did in the film Vellimoonga.
Saikumar As Thomas Chacko (Thilakan)
Remember this role that was portrayed so well by Thilakan? The role of Thomas Chacko has its share of negative shades. In case the film is remade now, Saikumar will be the right option for this role, with a few changes in get-up.
Suresh Krishna As Mr. Nair (Murali)
The role of Mr. Nair is quite a pivotal one in Kuttettan. It was actor Murali, who played the role of this fake gentleman. At present, Suresh Krishna is the one who can do this role with negative shades, with ease.
Aima Sebastian As Indhu (Maathu)
It is this particular character that brings about a change in Kuttettan's life. This character, which has been mistaken as Kuttettan's daughter by his family members was portrayed by Maathu in the original. If a remake happens, we feel that Aima Sebastian can be chosen for this role, which is quite a crucial one in the movie.
In fact, Kuttettan had its script written by Lohithadas, who also tried his hands at comedy through this venture. Well, if the film is remade now with the above mentioned actors, it would definitely be a treat to watch for this generation.
