Bhaskar The Rascal was one of the biggest hits of this year in Mollywood and it had come from the man of success Mr.Siddique. Siddique had done it again and keep up his record as a director who has 100% success ratio in Mollywood at first with his partner Lal and later independently. Even though his previous two film in Mollywod named Body Guard and Ladies and Gentleman were not big hits, those two were also made profit in box office and later the Kollywood and Bollywood versions of the flick Body Guard made a lot of money at Box office.
In a recent interview Siddique said about the success of Bhaskar The Rascal and his upcoming film King Liar with Dileep and which will be directed by his old partner Lal. Bhaskar was a relief to Mammootty more than anyone as the actor had no big hits for the past 5 years or so and his star value was going down like hell in these 5 years. At last he got a big one thanks to this man named Siddique. Siddique is doing it for Mammootty for the third consecutive time in his career.
The first time was when Mammootty is going through a really bad patch in the mid 90’s and Siddique made Hitler with Mammootty and it had become a big hit as a relief to Mammootty. Then again Mammootty fell in to a bad patch during 1999-2001 period and that time as well Siddique made a film with him titled Chronic Bachelor which was a super success at box office which gave Mammootty his stardom back. Now its Bhaskar that gave him his slipping stardom.
Siddique said that when he told the story of Bhaskar to Mammootty for the first time, the actor was thrilled after hearing it. Even though Mammootty is not keen on doing action scenes these due to age concerns he had given what the character needs in this flick. The action sequences set by Anbarivu, Mafia Sasi was comfortable one for Mammootty and it really worked out well. Siddique said that it was family audience that made this film a big success and had plans to remake it in Hindi, telugu and Tamil as well. Rajinikanth, Ajith, Venkitesh, Akshay Kumar are the front runners to do the character of Bhaskar in different languages.
