Looks like remakes do spell success!! Ninaithale Innikum, Unnaipol Oruvan and now Kanden Kadhalai. Though each movie is different in terms of story and treatment, the underlying common thread is that they are all remakes of hit films: Classmates, A Wednesday and Jab We Met respectively.
These films have proved that to make a remake successful, just copying the original is not enough. The stories have to be adapted and tweaked to suit the target audience.
With Kanden Kadhalai having received such a good response, Sun Pictures and Moser Baer are definitely happy to be part of a good family entertainer. Bharath, who has tried his hand at action roles for some time now, is now the next romantic hero on the block. (You can read more about him in the latest issue of Galatta Cinema.) And Tamannaah continues her hit run… Padikkaathavan, Ayan and now Kanden Kadhalai.
