A couple days back, I saw a blue and white Plymouth car in Boat Club Road. Seeing the car reminded me of the movie, ‘Kadhalikka neramillai’ – Muthuraman leaving for picnic in the Plymouth car and V.S.Raghavan looking at the car in shock and surprise wondering how on earth his car ended up with this rich millionaire. ‘Kadhalikka neramillai’ is one of my favourite movies. It’s a movie that I am never tired of watching. The scene where Nagesh narrates the story of his movie to Balaiah and Balaiah’s reactions to it, the way Balaiah talks and treats Chidambaram/Muthuraman with so much respect (real bhaya bhakti? 😉 ) completely unaware that he is being fooled by them, Nagesh trying to make Sacchu act are the scenes that instantly come to my mind every time I think I about the movie. Nagesh and Balaiah are the real stars of the movie.
When that’s the case, now imagine ‘Kadhalikka neramillai’ being remade now and Vadivelu playing Nagesh’s or Balaiah’s role! 😐 When I read in yesterday’s edition of ‘ergo’ that ‘Kadhalikka neramillai’ is going to be remade and Vadivelu might play Nagesh or Balaiah’s role, the very thought of Vadivelu in the movie got me irritated. I sincerely hope this movie isn’t remade at all. If at all it’s going to be remade, I wouldn’t want to see Vadivelu in the movie – I can’t stand watching him and his comedy!
Talking about Kadhalikka neramillai, my father tells me that this movie was given a ‘A’ rating at the time of its release!! The very fact that my father was not allowed to watch it at the time of its release but a few decades after the release of the movie, my sister and I have watched it with our grandparents so many times, shows how much times have changed. 😉
