We have seen many films shot in the beautiful backwaters and woods of God’s Own Country. By the way, gone are the days where Malayalam films meant only Adult films! Mollywood has always produced exceptional films and has emerged as a paradise for different and avante-grade films in the last couple of decades. And the entire nation including Telugu cinema is looking towards Mollywood.

Now, it is not just rainy season in the state but indeed a remake season in Tollywood. Interestingly, the remakes that are currently happening now are pre-dominantly Malayalam films. For instance,

Drushyam – This Venkatesh-Meena starrer family thriller is the remake of recent Malayalam blockbuster Drishyam starring Mohan Lal, Meena and others. This has been the biggest blockbuster in Malayalam so far and has even grossed over Rs. 40 crores in Kerala alone. Now, Suresh Productions is remaking the film which is slated for a release this July11.

Saheba Subramanyam: This romantic love story being directed by MS Narayana’s daughter Sasi Kiran Narayana is being touted as a remake of 2012 Malayalam musical hit Thattathin Marayathu (directed by Vineeth Sreenivasan). Interestingly, Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyindey fame Isha Talwar played the lead role in the Malayalam film which is being reprised by newbie Piyal Gor in the Telugu version. Even this film is set for a monsoon release. Recently, the audio of the film is out and is absolutely refreshing.

Bangalore Days: This is the recent buzz word all over. This 2014 Malayalam film written and directed by Anjali Menon is also being remade in Telugu. Prestigious PVP banner has bought the Telugu remake rights and has also zeroed in on ‘Bommarillu’ Bhaskar to direct this flick with newcomers.

Remakes are the new in-things in Tollywood and if at all these work, the influx is only going to increase. Above all, this is certainly good news for people who are expecting new wave Telugu cinema to bloom.
