Director Priyadarshan is well known for remaking movies from south to Bollywood and has certainly witnessed good results with it. Now, he gets back to Malayalam film industry but with the same effect. The director’s yesterday release ‘Geethanajli’ was the much anticipated flick of this season as it was reported of bringing back Mohanlal as Dr. Sunny from Manichitrathazhu. Nevertheless, it was so disappointing to see that the film is a remake of Kannada movie ‘Charulatha’ that starred Priyamani in dual roles as conjoined twins.

The director has made a small change of portraying the sisters as just twins and the inclusion of Mohanlal and Innocent are the only differences we find from the original version. It is noteworthy that ‘Charulatha’ itself is a remake of famous Thai horror movie ‘Alone’.
