Mirchi Shiva is known for his witty one-liners and comedy timing. On the other hand, director Kannan seems to be on a film signing spree. Now, the two have joined hands for the official remake of a yesteryear classic Kasethan Kadavulada. The original film featured Muthuraman, Thenga Srinivasan, Aachi Manorama, and others. The remake will see Mirchi Shiva reprising Muthuraman, Yogi Babu reprising Thenga Srinivasan, and Oorvasi reprising Manoramas character. The film was launched yesterday with a small pooja in Chennai.
In a statement, director Kannan said, "The pandemic phase has imposed a lot of stress upon everyone. Although there have been new releases on OTT platforms winning critical acclaims and positive reviews, they have been more inclined to genres like crime, supernatural thrillers, mystery, etc, which has eventually prompted the family audiences in desperate pursuit of laughter-riots that will be a pure stress-buster. Very few classic Tamil movies like Kadhalikka Neramillai, Kasethan kadavulada, and some other rom.com films have owned the unique trait of being evergreen entertainers beyond the years and ages. I felt that Kasethan Kadavulada will be a tailor-made treat for the audiences and got the official remake rights. I am confident that with a team comprising promising actors like Mirchi Shiva, Yogi Babu, Oorvasi madam, Karunakaran, and others, we will be able to do it."
