Kamal Haasan’s Unnaipol Oruvan directed by Chakri Toleti is being remade in English as “A Common Man” featuring Academy winner Ben Kingsley in the lead. Ben Cross another British actor replaced Mohan Lal Role in Hollywood.
Unnaipol oruvanwas originally made in Bollywood as A Wednesday, which was directed by Neeraj Pandey , although the Hollywood version inspired by the original genre of Hindi version and it was said that it won’t get the same aspects of the Hindi and Tamil versions as the director Chandran Rutnam a srilankan who lived in Los Angeles for 38 years adapted the story line but made big changes in it to make the film a different one.
Kingsley’s character is a man pushed to his limits — who eventually resorts to violent means. The only happiness from Kollywood is the Hollywood film A common man which will be composed by a Tamil music composer named Ramesh Vinayakam.
