TOP 10 BEST REMAKES IN TOLLYWOOD
Tollywood always surprises with their movies, also with the remakes. Here is the list of the Top 10 best remakes in Tollywood.
1. Shankar Dada M.B.B.S.:
In 2004 Jayanth C. Paranjee's comedy-drama Shankar Dada M.B.B.S. was released in India. Chiranjeevi, Sonali Bendre, Srikanth, Girish Karnad, and Paresh Rawal feature in this Hindi version of the 2003 film Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. It earned favourable reviews and had a good run of 100 days at the box office.
In the film A Wednesday, Naseeruddin Shah plays a regular guy who goes to incredible measures to try and murder the terrorists responsible for the 2006 Mumbai attacks. Anupam Kher plays the police officer who must cope with the issue. Kamal Hassan plays the common guy in the Telugu version of the movie, while Venkatesh Daggubati plays the officer. It succeeds in capturing the mood of its inspiration while delivering performances that are just as unforgettable.
Billa, starring Prabhas, Anushka, Krishnam Raju, and Namitha, is a perfect match for the original. The ensemble expertly captures the look and swagger of Billa and his crew. It is a remake of one of the most recognisable action thrillers in Hindi cinema, Don.
4. Teen Maar:
The movie Teen Maar, starring Pawan Kalyan and Trisha, makes a serious effort to capture the charm of its inspiration(Love Aaj Kal). Despite a few adjustments to accommodate Pawan Kalyan's star image and Telugu consumers' mass sensitivities, the movie is nonetheless an enjoyable watch and hits the correct notes.
5. Gabbar Singh:
The official Dabangg adaptation, starring Pawan Kalyan and Shruthi Haasan, is titled Gabbar Singh. By including stylised nods to Pawan Kalyan's recognisable themes and drama that are appropriate for Telugu audiences, this Hindi remake transformed into a unique rendition for the Telugu audience. Devi Sri Prasad's music became a tremendous sensation, and most of the songs are still well-liked today.
Sekhar Kammula's Telugu adaptation of the Kahaani film, Anaamika, starred Nayanthara. It was surprising to see Sekhar Kammula take on the task of reproducing a thriller, as he was previously renowned for his feel-good movies. However, the final product was a well-rounded movie that made significant alterations to the original. Without lessening the effect of the original, Anaamika keeps the essential elements of Kahaani while going on a novel tangential route.
7. Gopala Gopala:
Gopala Gopala, starring Pawan Kalyan as Gopala Govinda Hari and Venkatesh Daggubati as Gopala Rao, is a remake of the movie OMG-Oh My God! (who is Lord Krishna). With a blend of humour and helplessness, Venkatesh portrays Gopala Rao with the utmost sincerity. Pawan Kalyan is also well-suited for the part of the enigmatic "consultant" assisting Gopala Rao in winning his case. The movie lives up to the original and is entertaining to see.
The romantic comedy action movie Bodyguard, which was released in 2012 in India's Telugu language, was produced by Bellamkonda Suresh under the Sri Sai Ganesh Productions label and was helmed by Gopichand Malineni. With music by S. Thaman, the movie features Venkatesh and Trisha. It is a remake of the identically named 2010 Malayalam film.
