The film “Bhola” starring Ajay Devgan is ready for release. Now only one week remains till the film is released to the general audience. ‘Bhola’ is the Hindi version of the Tamil film ‘Kaithi,’ which was popular with Tamil and Hindi viewers alike. Ajay has acted in many Hindi remakes of South Indian films. Please describe their situation.
“Bhola” is prepared for release in theatres. The explosive action flick of Ajay Devgan will be released on March 30. When Ajay released the first trailer for ‘Bhola’ in November, the public has been extremely enthusiastic about his upcoming flick. Aur ho bhi kyun na… In any case, one of the public’s favorite action heroes, Ajay, is appearing on screen in a revealing action persona.
“Bhola” is the Hindi version of the Tamil film “Kaithi,” whose protagonist was Karthi. This was the first picture by director Lokesh Kanagaraj, from which a brand-new cinematic universe began. ‘Vikram,’ starring Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Fazil, was the second film in this universe and has garnered its own cult following by grossing over Rs 400 crore.
Ajay’s Remakes of South Indian Flicks
1. Insaan (2005)
How did Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar collaborate in the film “Insaan”? Also featured in the film were Esha Deol, Lara Dutta, and Tusshar Kapoor. Of. This Subhash film with multiple actors was a Hindi remake of the Telugu film Khadgam. Despite the collaboration of two major action stars, the picture was a major box-office failure.
2. Golmaal (2006)
The first comedy film co-starring Ajay Devgan and Rohit Shetty was not an authentic remake. Nonetheless, the film’s narrative appears to have been strongly “influenced” by Priyadarshan’s Malayalam comedy film Kakkakuyil.
The comedy in Malayalam films has always been outstanding, and possibly Ajay’s picture benefited from this tradition. ‘Golmaal’ generated a substantial profit for its creators and spawned a whole comedy picture franchise, all of which are box office successes.
3. Sunday (2008)
Audiences seemed to enjoy Ajay Devgan, Irrfan Khan, and Arshad Warsi‘s new movie “Sunday.” Yet, it was a major failure upon its initial release. The Hindi translation of the international smash hit Anukokunda Oka Roju was titled Sunday.
4. Singham (2011)
Suriya, who portrayed Rolex’s brother in the 2022 film ‘Vikram,’ starred in the original Tamil version of ‘Singam’ as the main character. When Rohit Shetty adapted this popular cop character into a Hindi film, he cast Ajay in the lead part. “Singham,” which grossed more than Rs 100 crore at the box office, was a career-defining film for Ajay.
5. Son of Sardaar (2012)
Ajay was acquainted with SS Rajamouli, one of India’s most prominent directors, prior to their collaboration on RRR. Son of Sardaar was the Hindi version of Maryada Ramanna, Rajamouli’s blockbuster Telugu film. This is most likely the most successful remake of a Telugu film in which Ajay has participated.
6. Himmatwala (2013)
In 1981, K Raghavendra Rao directed the film Ooriki Monagadu. After two years, he remade his film in Hindi as ‘Himmatwala’, starring Jeetendra and Sridevi in the key parts. This film with numerous great songs was also a box-office success. The plot took an unexpected turn in 2013, when Sajid Khan remade the original film in Hindi and dubbed it “Himmatwala.” This time, Ajay was the protagonist, but the film was a dismal failure.
7. Action Jackson (2014)
Like with ‘Golmaal,’ ‘Action Jackson’ is rumored to be an unauthorized remake of Mahesh Babu’s Telugu blockbuster Dookudu. And it is not just a claim; the plots of both films share many parallels. Whether or not ‘Action Jackson’ was a Hindi remake of Mahesh Babu’s film is irrelevant to the fact that Ajay’s picture was a box office failure.
8. Drishyam (2015)
The Malayalam smash blockbuster ‘Drishyam’ starring superstar Mohanlal was adapted in Hindi with the same name. Jeethu Joseph, who directed the film in Malayalam, also wrote the Hindi script.
This is a rare instance in which both films and their sequels have set box office records in their respective industries. While Ajay’s ‘Drishyam’ was a box office success, ‘Drishyam 2’, released in 2022, grossed Rs 240 crore at the box office.
9. A Fact Check – Yuva (2004)
The film ‘Yuva’ by Mani Ratnam progressively gained cult status, yet it was a box office failure. ‘Yuva’ is frequently referred to as a Hindi remake of the Tamil film Ayatha Ezhuthu, however, this is incorrect. In fact, Mani Ratnam simultaneously shot both films with distinct casts.
“Kaithi” was one of Tamil cinema’s most successful films. They now have high hopes for ‘Bhola’ as well. People are quite impressed by Ajay’s actions, his own direction, and the degree of action in the picture.
The argument in support of ‘Bhola’ is that ‘Kaithi’ is unavailable on any major OTT platform in Hindi. This film is available in Hindi on select YouTube channels, but the increasing number of views indicates that its availability is expanding.
