Film-maker Nalan Kumarasamy of Soodhu Kavvum fame has confirmed that his forthcoming Tamil romantic-comedy Kadhalum Kadandhu Pogum, starring Vijay Sethupathi is an official remake of Korean film My Dear Desperado.
"I really loved the film. We acquired the remake rights for Rs.40 lakh (Rs.4 million) and made the Tamil version. The remake will have my touch, of course," Kumarasamy told IANS.
The film, which is about the blossoming relationship between the characters played by the lead actors, also stars Madonna Sebastian.
"One of the highlights of the film is that when the lead pair finally falls in love, the film ends," he said, and added that the film won't have a sequel. This revelation is contrary to some rumours.
The film also stars Samuthirakani as the antagonist, in the role of a sub-inspector.
Produced by CV Kumar and Studio Green, the film is slated for theatrical release on February 12th.
