Samuthirakani’s Appa is a silent hit in Tamil Nadu. While elite reviewers have trashed Appa, the film attracted the laymen and they made it as a hit venture for the lovely message conveyed by director Samuthirakani.
The latest update is that Appa will be remade in Malayalam. Yes, Samuthirakani himself will be directing the film while talks are on with Jayaram of Thenali fame to play the lead role.
Samuthirakani has become famous in Malayalam with his villainy performance in Mohanlal’s Oppam and he is likely to sign more films in Mollywood. Meanwhile, Samuthirakani is also playing an important role in Dhanush’s Vada Chennai.
