Sathyaraj to star in Rathakanneer remake

Tuesday, November 28, 2006 • Kannada Comments

Sathyaraj is a great fan of M R Radha.

Sathyaraj has used some of the techniques of M R Radha on screen and like him, is an atheist off screen.

So it is no surprise that Sathyaraj wants to do the remake of Rathakanneer, a movie that has given abiding name and fame to M R Radha.

The movie about a decadent Anglophile, who derides everything India and goes on a hedonistic binge, was a cult hit as a drama and then as a film.

It was M R Radha’s calling card and the ‘Adiye Kantha’ dialogue is stuff of the local legend.

It will be interesting to see Sathyaraj mouth those celebrated lines.

Sathyaraj’s favourite director, Sakthi Chidambaram may direct this remake.

Sathyaraj also wants to remake his own hit Poovizhi Vasalile.
