Smartly remade movie that adds more flavor!
28 March 2016 | by naveensankaran18See all my reviews

I have watched The Intouchables a long time ago and I loved that movie for its depiction of the relationship between the Wealthy man and his care taker. When I heard it was being remade, I initially thought that the movie won't make it good on screen. But after seeing the movie, my thought changed completely!

Pros:

Altered Script - the main theme of the movie stays the same. But the way the script has been adjusted to suit the South Indian Audience deserves a mention. Also, there was no considerable lag in the screenplay.

Dialogs - Deserves the applause! Easily the backbone of the movie. The dialogs weren't melodramatic but was sentimental at some places and brought humor to the screen when required.

Casting - Pretty much good. Karthi-Nagarjuna combo steals the show here!

Cons: Ooops!! Sorry nothing to mention. I was just happily enjoying the movie and failed to notice tiny flaws.

This is one of the most credibly remade movie ever in South Indian cinema. Watch it and enjoy the experience.
