Sadayam, the Mohanlal starring psychological drama-thriller movie, has been considered as one of the most-underrated movies in the actor's career. The movie, which was directed by Sibi Malayil, has also been considered as one of the best Malayalam movies in the genre.
Mohanlal appeared in the role of Sathyanathan, an artist who ends up killing two young girls and two men. The actor delivered one of the finest performances of his career in Sadayam, which was scripted by Jnanpith award winner MT Vasudevan Nair.
Let's see who can all replace Mohanlal and others, if Sadayam is hypothetically being remade now....
Fahadh Faasil As Sathyanathan
The only choice for the role of Sathyanathan, from the current slot. Fahadh Faasil is an actor who amazes us with his extraordinary acting skills and minute expressions. He can undoubtedly be the best replacement for Mohanlal, if Sadayam is being remade now.
PS: In a recent interview, Fahadh had quoted Sathyanathan from Sadayam as his dream role..!!!
Prayaga Martin As Jaya
Mathu played the role of Jaya, the love interest of Sathayn who lives with prostitutes and finally ends up in the same profession. From the present group of actresses, Prayaga Martin will be a good choice for the role.
Mukesh As Father Dominic
Nedumudi Venu played the role of Father Dominic, who rescues the young Sathyan from a miserable life and guides him. If Sadayam is being remade now, Mukesh can play the character to near the perfection.
Lal As Dr Nambiar
The role of prison doctore Nambiar, the father of Vijayan, who was killed by Sathyanathan, was played by Thilakan in the original. If a remake happens now, actor-director Lal can essay the character.
Saiju Kurup As Young Police Officer
Murali, the National award winner essayed the role of the young police officer, who grows compassionate towards Sathyanathan. If the movie is being remade now, Saiju Kurup will be a great choice for the role.
Soubin Shahir As Kunjali
Actor-writer Sreenivasan appeared as Kunjali, a prisoner who befriends Sathyanathan, in Sadayam. The role, which has shades of humour, is tailor-made for Soubin Shahir, if the movie is being remade now,
Mathu essayed the female lead opposite Mohanlal in Sadayam, which featured Thilakan, Nedumudi Venu, Janardhanan, Murali, Sreenivasan, KPAC Lalitha, Augustine, TG Ravi, Mahesh, Kaveri, etc., in the supporting roles.
MT Vasudevan Nair, the scriptwriter, won his second National Film Award for the Best Screenplay, for Sadayam. Mohanlal-MT duo took a break of about 25 years after Sadayam, and are now planning to join hands once again, for the upcoming epic drama Randamoozham.
Sibi Malayil, the director of the movie bagged the Filmfare Award South of 1992 for the Best Director, for the movie. Sadayam was produced by GP Vijaya Kumar, under the renowned banner Seven Arts Films.
