okay guys, yesterday i had the oppourunity to watch Devdas again. the latest one starring shah rukh, aishwarya rai & madhuri dixit. it was such a beautiful film & the ending just made me tear up for the countless time.CryCry

i was wondering if that film was to be ever remade in tamil for kollywood audiences, who would like to see as the characters? any current leading men & ladies in your minds for the role?

for me,

the only one whom i think can do justice to the role of devdas is vikram. only vikram. vijay is out of the question since we need someone who can actually act.LOLLOL surya will also be a good alternative other than vikram

as for paro, i will suggest someone who is beautiful yet is able to emote well. my evident choices would be either sada or tamana.Smile

chandramukhi the courtesan.. hmm.. i think shriya reddy or sangeeta will be apt for the role. the role is a heavy one, i can only see one of these 2 actresses as chandrmukhi.

i would like to see arjun play the role of chunnilal. he'll add his own style to the character.

that's about it on my side. how about you guys?Tongue

I think Vicky is a good choice but also Maddy   Embarrassed and the heroine....I cant
pic any specific for Paros role, but pretty many to CMs roles...like Sangeetha
( for the role she did in Uyir and Pitamagan movie), Ramya also if the hero
was a much older LOL , shreyea and the girl who come in kalabha
kadhalan..I think her name is Akshaya Confused

I agree with both of you Vikram will be good or Surya. Hey wat about Ajith?

For heroine i agree with the choices Jyothika will be good.

I dont know about the rest but Arjun will be good as chunnilal. I watched the movie as well the ending was so emotional but a superb movie.

well, to ahve the exact copy of the Hindi Devdas,I think Madhavan will be apt.

Heroine, it has to be a mix of beauty and acting powers(to do the climax scene and the one in which Paro is married off ). I think Meera Jasmine, or Sneha. But dancing ability is also important, so I don't see Meera as a very good dancer. So I guess Sneha. Asin woudn't be bad too, it will eb a relief to see her in soemthign diff.

As Chandramukhi, I have only Jothika in mind. You need the charm that MD had, and I can only see Jo with that.Her eyes wil do the work Smile

Here is what I think

Devdas - Vikram coz one needs good emoting with the inital romantic character- Vikram has the knack of getting into the skin of the character..so...

Paro- Sneha coz this character needs looks of innocence and a simple appearence, with good acting abilities..Sneha has that and she looks equally comfortable without much makeup (Pallikoodam) and she has a beautiful smile and very expressive eyes.

Chandramukhi - Sangeetha wins hands down, coz this character needs to portray self assurance, a little ALATCHIYAM, and great compassion- more like beauty with confidence and brains, and Sangeetha can portray all this very convincingly without making the character cheap!

As for Chunnilal- i think Prakashraj will be able to do real justice to the role of a lovabel rascal!

My 2 cents!
