Dhuruvangal 16 to be remade in Malayalam
One of the most talked about movies in recent times is Dhuruvangal 16, a whodunit thriller. The movie was released without much hype on 29 Decemeber. Upon release, the film received excellent reviews from the critics who showered praise on the young team behind the movie.
The most exciting factor about D16 is, it is directed by a 22 year old. The story of Karthick Naren, the director who dropped out of college to pursue his dreams went viral. The word of mouth spread like wild fire and cine buffs flocked the theatres. Celebrities including Vijay, Gautham Menon, Murugadoss, Rana Daggubati, Sivakarthikeyan, Simbu and many others personally invited Karthick and praised him for his brilliant debut directorial.
Unfortunately, the movie did not have a theatrical release in Kerala. Movie buffs of the State finally had to resort to watch the movie online. Keralites started talking about the movie only after it’s release in the Torrents platform. D16 is currently the topic of discussion in several social media groups.
Recently a 22 year old movie buff Mahavishnu has won the distribution rights for D16 in Kerala. We are not sure whether the movie can create any sort of impact in the box office as the DVDs have already been released.
However, we know hear that the remake rights for the movie have been bought by a popular production house. It is not yet clear who will direct or star in this movie but speculations are rife about Rahman himself playing the lead in the Malayalam version also. An official confirmation regarding the same is expected in the coming days.
Meanwhile, the director Karthick Naren is planning to start his next movie Naragasooran. Karthick has informed that his next will be the second part in the thriller trilogy. Aravind Swamy and Telugu actor Naga Chaitanya have already committed to play the major roles in the movie. Gautham Menon will be co-producing this movie, which is said to be an action thriller.
