Filmmaker Neeraj Pandey


South Indian films have been inspiring Bollywood filmmakers for years now. Every year, we see dozens of Hindi movies hitting screens which draw their inspiration from the South Indian film industry. The latest film which has caught the attention of a top Hindi filmmaker is Malayalam-language crime drama Puthiya Niyamam (2016).

According to reports, renowned film director and producer Neeraj Pandey is contemplating remaking Puthiya Niyamam with some of the biggest names from the Hindi film industry.

Puthiya Niyamam is the story of a Kathakali dancer Vasuki Iyer played by Nayanthara who was raped by her neighbours. Vasuki informs the lady DCP about the rape as she is unable to tell her husband Mammootty (who plays advocate Louis Pothen). Pandey wants to make that film now with a top Bollywood actress,” a source divulges.

The source goes on to add, “Other characters including the husband and the firebrand female cop will also be finalised soon. The film is a family drama as well as a thriller. And Pandey loved the film when he saw it. The film also has a revenge angle in it where the heroine takes revenge on the perpetrators.”

Well, we all know how good Neeraj Pandey is at making gripping thrillers. We are sure that the filmmaker will do complete justice to the project if he takes it up to remake in Hindi.

More details are awaited.
