Yet there are some stories that will be loved and cherished regardless of which time period they’re told in Farhan Akhtar’s remake of Don was an example that did successfully while David Dhawan’s Chashme Baddoor was average “Chashme Baddoor essentially borrowed the idea of three guys attracted to the same girl from the original The concept of the film was similar to the original but the rest was different Many a time directors take the title that’s it In those cases it’s not really fair to compare it to the original” explains Anshuman admitting that David Dhawan’s film didn’t match up to the original Comparisons exist even if a film merely refers to another film piece of literature or a play let alone borrowing the basic concept of the original film As Shashanka Ghosh director of Khoobsurat (2014) a remake of the 1980 Rekha starer of the same name agrees that there’s more pressure to make a remake “I also got criticised The industry tends to analyse However if you’re a good film-maker you have to hold onto your convictions as everyone is entitled to their opinion” he states It’s not only directors who tread carefully while remaking films but even actors who are well aware of the comparisons and expectations that tag along when acting in a remake or classic Kalki Koechlin when preparing for her role in Dev D an adaptation of Devdas says that she did not watch the original “I think seeing Madhuri’s performance would’ve put more pressure on me The makers of Dev D warned me not to watch Devdas and told me to bring a fresh perspective to my character Besides Chandramukhi was kind-hearted while Chanda was unapologetic about her behaviour Had I seen it I would have had several preconceived notions” says Koechlin Ghosh also talks about his initial reservations before making Khoobsurat as he mentions how he feared the remake would turn out to be a romance “I initially felt the original story wouldn’t hold today as it was about a young girl coming into her sisters house and we should turn our film into a romance His reservations however were put at ease when none other than Siddharth Roy Kapur MD Disney India praised his film and said it had nothing to do with the original except the central idea “Siddharth used to say it’s a different film and kept referring to it as ‘aafat’ (in reference to the accident prone and clumsy character Sonam Kapoor was depicted in the 2014 remake) However both Sonam and Rhea (Kapoor) felt strongly about making it a tribute” Given the prickly topic a refusal to disclose any details are common to directors who are contemplating remakes Khalid Mohamed’s Katha which is based on Sai Paranjpye’s Katha (1983) refuses to disclose any details about the remake he’s working on “Speaking for myself I see remakes as an opportunity to salute the original” states Mohamed when asked for his take on the trend of remaking classics While there have also been talks about Hansal Mehta remaking Mahesh Bhatt’s Saaransh (1984) Mehta clarifies that he’s still contemplating remaking it “I’m currently working on something Once I’m done with that I will think about it and only if I’m able to reinterpret and give a new life to Saaransh I will remake it” he reveals Abhishek Sharma whose The Shaukeens is an adaptation of Basu Chatterjee’s Shaukeen talks about the unseen irony that’s attached to remaking a film “We speak of remakes in a derogatory manner but there is no such noise when people turn old plays into films There is no comparison then but when you work on a film script and adapt it suddenly there is a comparison because it is a film versus film” “Whether it’s an adaption remake loosely inspired you have to put out an entertaining package: Ultimately everybody is shooting in the dark Film-making is a gamble Just 10-12 percent of films are absolute hits in terms of return on investment” remarks exhibitor and distributor Akshaye Rathi as he talks about how there’s no formula for success While there may not a mantra for a film to both succeed at the box office and be critically acclaimed there’s surely one factor that applies for remakes it needs to find its own voice But how is that possible “I can take you through a happy scene anywhere the emotion will be the same but the situation will differ Even when a director remakes a film it’s not possible to replicate every frame” explains Ghosh as he sheds light on how even a remake or an adaptation will be reflective of its director’s vision Given the scenario so far—approximately 625 percent of remakes made in a span of 12 years have proved to be successful and with The Shaukeens yet another remake releasing this week and Khalid Mohamed’s Katha in the pipeline one can conclude that despite the creative odds this is one trend that will continue thanks to its commercial viability kanikarajani@expressindiacom For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express AppBy: Indo-Asian News Service | Mumbai |
