Captain's 'Oomai Vizhigal' to be remade?

Cinemimi[Saturday, December 24, 2011]
There was a buzz in Kollywood that director Vincent Selva, who made films like 'Priyamudan', 'Youth' (both Vijay starrers) and 'Iraniyan', will soon remake cult thriller 'Oomai Vizhigal', which had Vijayakanth in the lead role.

However, the filmmaker is quick to deny it. "I am going to direct a fresh script and I felt that the title Oomai Vizhigal will be apt for it. When I approached Aabavanan (the man behind the original version) with the idea, he was unable to give me permission to use the title due to unavoidable reasons."

Selva, who is mentor to top filmmakers like Mysskin, adds: "Hence I am planning to start the movie under the new title Moongil Vizhigal. It will be a thriller with commercial aspects. The project will hit the floors very soon."

Selva, while saying that Sarath Kumar will be approached for a crucial role, gives details that fresher Karthik is the lead protagonist, while two new girls from Pune and Kerala play the female leads. Santhanam and Thambi Ramaiah will also be there.
