Anniyan, starring Vikram and Sadhna in the lead and Prakash Raj in supporting role is the Tamil psychological thriller directed by Shankar. Vikram portrays the role of Ramanujam, an idealistic, law-abiding lawyer who suffers from multiple personality disorder and develops two other identities; a metro sexual fashion model and a grim reaper-themed vigilante serial killer. Frustrated at his inability to bring about a change and having suppressed for his efforts, his anger manifests itself creating an alter-ego “Anniyan”, a violent and deranged grim reaper-themed serial killer who punishes indifference towards social commitment.

Hrithik Roshan as a lawyer suffering from multi personality disorder will be an interesting watch. From Kaho Na Pyaar Hai to Krrish series, Hrithik has proved his versatility and so we think he will pull off the character to the par. Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik make a good on-screen couple with films like AgneepathKrrish, and Krrish 3 and that might work here as well. Being a known villain in Bollywood, Prakash Raj will make for a good choice in the remake.

Vettaikaran (Meaning – Hunter)

Genre – Action Masala Entertainer

Vettaikaran is a typical Tamil action entertainer with a basic plot of how a hero aspires to be an encounter specialist whom he idolizes and how he becomes the one after his family is massacred by villain. The hero then with the help of an encounter specialist takes revenge. The original starred Vijay, a college student, who aspires to be a police officer, Anushka Shetty, Vijay’s love interest and Srihari in supporting role of former encounter specialist.

With films like Aurangzeb, Ishaqzaade, Gunday we think Arjun Kapoor suits perfect for the remake of Vettaikaran. Kajal Aggarwal as his love interest and Bollywood’s tough man Sunny Deol will be a good choice to play former encounter specialist, as he has portrayed the role of a police officer and patriot in films likeTridev, Vardi, Vishwatma, ChampionFarzIndian, Border et al.

Panchathantiram (Meaning – Five Tricks)

Genre – Comedy of Errors

Kamal Haasan, pilot by profession, is a flirtatious man who continues to do so even after getting married. His wife misunderstands him with his friend’s ex-girlfriend, whom he actually rescued in her attempt to suicide; and leaves him in anticipation of divorce. His four friends, in order to cheer him, plans for a short vacation and in the midst of fun outing he is trapped in a mysterious murder case of a call girl (played by Ramya Krishnan), who later is discovered to be alive. The original stars Kamal Haasan, Simran and Ramya Krishnan

Akshay Kumar in a Various Movies Stills

Known for his awesome comic timing and chemistry with the actresses, Akshay Kumar will be the best pick for portraying Kamal Haasan’s character of a pilot and womanizer. Kareena Kapoor has previously played a possessive wife full of doubts in Golmaal Returns and was loved for the same. So, we think she will make for a perfect choice of Akshay’s wife. Riteish Deshmukh, Suniel Shetty, Fardeen Khan and Tusshar Kapoor can play the four buddies. And the best to play the vamp is Mallika Sherawat, for her act in Welcome.

Padikkadavan (Meaning – Uneducated)

Genre – Action Comedy, Masala entertainer

The story is about Radhakrishnan aka Rocky (Dhanush) who is a college dropout and is criticized by family for not being a kind person like his other family members, who are well educated and are placed to a good designation at their jobs. Rocky’s friends advice him to love and marry a well educated girl. Hovering around Women College to find a perfect well educated girl, he falls in love with Gayathri (Tamannaah Bhatia) who turns out to be a daughter of a don. Later Rocky bumps into yet another don Kasi (Atul Kulkarni) whose brother, he had accidentally killed while protecting Gayathri. How he tackles the situations and wins over Gayathri is the story.

Varun Dhawan in a Various Movies Stills

All set to change his lover boy image with Badlapur, Varun Dhawan will finely reprise Dhanush’s role we think. And it is somewhat similar to what he has played in Main Tera Hero and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. Moreover, audiences have loved him in such kind of roles. Tamannaah can reprise her role in Hindi remake as well. Prakash Raj has made a mark in Bollywood with his villainous avatar in films and hence, he will pull off the character with absolute perfection.

7aum Arivu (Meaning – Seventh Sense)

Genre – Sci-Fi Thriller

The story is setup in two worlds, one during the Pallava Dynasty when Bodhidharma, a martial art champion and expert in medical remedies, goes to China to stop an epidemic disease, cure people and also save them from atrocities of other people who ill-treated the villagers. Later the villagers due to their superstitious beliefs do not let Bodhidharma return to India and bury him nearby a temple thinking that with this the place will be disease free. The story then switches to modern day China and Chennai. Dong Lee (played by Johnny Tri Nguyen) an evil man in China plans a biological war against India starting with Chennai with the same epidemic disease spreading virus. Subha Srinivasan (Shruti Haasan) who is a genetics student identifies the DNA of modern day Aravind, a circus artist matching to that of Bodhidharma and an operation to stop the virus and destruction begins.

Ranveer Singh has raised his performance bar with Ram-Leela and has emerged as one of the finest actors; hence, he can get into the skin of both the characters played by Suriya. Alia Bhatt, the one among the next-Gen star with her sensible portrayal of character in Highway sets off for a perfect choice to play a student of genetics. Gordon Liu, a Chinese martial arts film actor and martial artist who played a villain in Akshay Kumar starrer Chandni Chowk to China, can reprise the role of Johnny Tri Nguyen.
