Theri villain Mahendran to reprise chachan’s role in the Tamil remake of Maheshinte Prathikaram

It is already known that ace filmmaker Priyadarshan is helming the Tamil remake of last year’s widely acclaimed Malayalam movie Maheshinte Prathikaram (MP). Actor/producer Udhayanidhi Stalin and Malayali actress Namitha Pramod are playing the lead roles in this fun entertainer.

Shoot for the movie commenced recently in Thenkasi. Director Priyadarshan shared a few photos from the movie’s sets in his Facebook page. Legendary filmmaker J Mahendran is reprising the role of protagonist’s father in the movie. The father’s role was a very prominent character in the Malayalam version. Mahendran made his acting debut last year with a terrific portrayal of the villain’s role in Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s blockbuster film Theri.

Malayali actress Parvathy Nair has been roped in to reprise the character played by Anusree in Maheshinte Prathikaram. Samuthirakani is essaying the villain’s role and MS Bhaskar will be playing the role of the protagonist’s middle-aged friend, played by Alencier Ley in the original. Karunakaran will be seen in Udhayanidhi’s side-kick role, played by Soubin Shahir in MP.

Maheshinte Prathikaram, directed by Dileesh Pothan and starring Fahadh Faasil in the titular role, was a huge success, both critically and commercially. It went on to win numerous accolades including a couple of National Awards.

Priyadarshan had revealed that the Tamil verison will have some slight changes in the script. They have tweaked the script slightly to suit the sensibilities of the Tamil audience. Apparently, there will be much more prominence to humour in the Tamil version, which is yet to be titled.

Priyadarshan has retained his technicians from his last film Oppam for this upcoming movie also. NK Ekambaram is wielding the camera and MS Ayyappan Nair will be handle the edits. Santhosh T Kuruvilla of Moonshot Entertainment is producing this movie.
