One of the most memorable Tamil comedies is Jayashankar- Nagesh- KR Vijaya rollicking entertainer Pattanathil Bhootham (1967), directed by MV Raman. Now the film about two friends getting magic genie is to be remade by producer PL Thenappan.
Thenappan is planning to remake it with KS Manikandan of KLTA fame as director and script of Crazy Mohan as a rip-roaring comedy. He is trying to rope in Mirchi Shiva and Santhanam to do the role made memorable by Jayashankar and Nagesh.
However the big news is that Power Star Srinivasan will play the genie or the Bhootham in the film. The subject of Pattanathil Bhootham is a mixture of romance and comedy and may work wonders at the box-office.
