Helen Remake: Here’s the first look of Janhvi Kapoor’s Mili

We had earlier reported about Janhvi Kapoor starring in the Hindi remake of Malayalam film ‘Helen’. The Hindi version titled ‘Mili’ is directed by Mathukutty Xavier, who directed the original as well. Janhvi’s father Boney Kapoor’s Bayview Projects is backing it along with Zee Studios. AR Rahman has composed music for the film. It will be interesting to see how the makers have tweaked the script from the original to adapt the sensibilities of the Hindi audience. The film will be hitting screens on November 4, followed by an OTT release on Netflix.

‘Helen’ is a survival thriller that had Anna Ben playing the titular role. The film was received well by both the critics as well as the general public. It won two awards at the National level — Best Debut Film of a Director and Best Makeup Artist (Ranjith Ambady). Anna Ben’s performance also got her a Special Mention at the Kerala State Awards.

‘Helen’ was also remade in Tamil as ‘Anbirkiniyal’ with Keerthy Pandyan as the lead. It was directed by Gokul, who previously made films like ‘Rowthiram’, ‘Idharkuthaane Aasaipattai Balakumara’, ‘Junga’, and ‘Kashmora’.

In the Tamil version, which is yet to be titled, who had made her acting debut with ‘Thumbaa’, will be seen playing the lead role. Her dad Arun Pandian is reprising the father’s role played by Lal in the original.

Since ‘Helen’ is a survival thriller, its story should appeal to a wide range of audience irrespective of the language.
