Directed by R Kannan, the film is a remake of the Tamil classic comedy of the same name
The remake of 1972 classic comedy Kasethan Kadavulada helmed by R Kannan has finished its shoot. The shoot that started last month on July 16 was completed in 35 days. As the entire film was being shot in and around Chennai, the team could complete it in a little over a month.
Now, the makers of the comedy are planning to get the film ready for an Aayutha Pooja release, by when hopefully theatres should open.
The remake of the Tamil classic comedy stars Mirchi Shiva, Yogi Babu, Priya Anand, Urvashi, Thalaivasal Vijay, Karunakaran, Manobala and Super Singer and Cooku with Comali fame, Sivaangi.
Kasethan Kadavulada is bankrolled by R Kannan’s production house Masala Pix in association with MKRP Productions. N Kannan is providing the music for the film and Prasana Kumar is the cinematographer.
After announcing the remake officially, the director told Cinema Express in July: “The films have grown bleak and violent in the recent past, and I want to make an out-and-out entertainer that'll leave the audience in splits from the start to the end.”
Released in 1972, Kasethan Kadavulada is a classic comedy, which revolves around a family who devises and disguises to steal money from Parvathi, a dominating second wife who controls all of her husband Sivaswamy’s wealth.
The film was an adaptation of a play of the same name starring Muthuraman and Lakshmi along with M R R Vasu, Thengai Srinivasan, Srikanth, Moorthy, Manorama and Rama Prabha.
The remake directed by R Kannan will see actor Shiva step into the shoes of the role played by the late Muthuraman, Yogi Babu playing the role played by Thenga Srinivasan and Urvashi essaying the role played by Manorama in the original film.
