Mazhayethum Munpe, the 1995-released romantic drama, still remains as one of the most appreciated films in lead actor Mammootty's career. The movie, which was directed by the senior film-maker Kamal, was scripted by Sreenivasan.
Mammootty played Nandakumar Varma, a college professor in the movie, which had Shobana and Annie in the female leads. Mazhayethum Munpe had Sreenivasan, Sukumari, Sankaradi, NF Varghese, TP Madhavan, Manju Pillai, Praseetha Menon, etc., in the supporting roles.
Here we list the names of the actors, whom we feel are the perfect choices for the main star cast if Mazhayethum Munpe is remade now....
Prithviraj as Nandakumar Varma
The role of the young, strict college professor who unconditionally loves his childhood sweetheart Uma, but finally ends up marrying his much younger student Shruti, was brilliantly played by Mammootty in the original. If the movie is remade now, the only choice for the role is Prithviraj.
Mamtha Mohandas as Uma
Shobana essayed the role of Uma, Nandan's childhood sweetheart who decides to sacrifice the love of her life due to her illness, in Mazhayethum Munpe. If the movie is remade now, Mamtha Mohandas will be a good choice for the role.
Aparna Balamurali as Shruti
Annie delivered her career-best performance as Shruti, the arrogant, self-centered college student who falls madly in love with her professor. If Mazhayethum Munpe is getting remade now, Aparna Balamurali will be the best choice for the role.
Suraj Venjaramoodu as Rahman
Sreenivasan, the writer himself essayed the role of Rahman, Nandan's colleague turned best friend who eventually helps him to reunite with Uma and his daughter. From the current slot, Suraj Venjarammodu will be the best choice for the role.
Mukesh as Valappil Kaimal
The role of Valappil Kaimal, Shruti's loving father who always supports his daughter's decisions, was played by NF Varghese in the movie. If the movie is being remade now, the character will be safe in Mukesh's hands.
Mazhayethum Munpe, which was produced by Madhavan Nair for Murali Films, had emerged as one of the highest grossing films of 1995. The Mammootty starrer also earned wide appreciations from the critics.
The movie bagged several popular film awards, including the Kerala State Film Awards of 1995, including the awards for the Best Film With Popular Appeal and Aesthetic Quality, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.
The songs of the movie, which were composed by Raveendran and R Anandh, still remain in the hit charts. Mazhayethum Munpe was later remade in Hindi in 2005 under the title Zameer, with Ajay Devgan, Mahima Chaudhry, and Ameesh Patel in the lead roles.
