Soft porn movies, which hit the box office in Malayalam in the late seventies and eighties are making a comeback in the film industry here as remakes.

 

 

 

A host of old hits like I V Sasi directed 1978 film  "Avalude Ravukal" (Her Nights), Antony Eastman's "Inaye Thedi"(in search of partner) in 1981 and late Sankaran Nair's 1975 film "Rasaleela" are some of the movies in the list.

 

 

The box office disappointment of big budger films and lack of novel stories, is forcing producers to reproduce old hits, which they believe, will woo the audiences afresh. The remarkable success of the remake of 1978 "Rathinirvedam" last year by noted director T K Rajeev Kumar has been the trend setter in this direction.

 

 

The original version was directed by versatile Bharathan based on the script of noted writer-director Padmarajan. The film narrates the story of a teenager who falls in love with a woman older than him.

 

 

The film then turned out to be a big success and also received critical appreciation for the sensitive portrayal of the sensuous theme.(PTI)
