Gundamma Katha, the everlasting social film on Telugu Film Screen has got all the commercial entertaining ingredients which can be rebooted again and again. All it needs is to match that imperishable story and characters to the contemporary time with respect to sets, properties and dialogue.
Many discussions happened earlier to remake this film with Nagarjuna and Balakrishna in later 80s. Eventually, nothing happened but now the discussions are surfacing again. It is discussed among a few technicians who can play what if “Gundamma Katha” is remade now.
Unanimously, everyone opined to see Anasuya in the title role Gundamma. But who can play the role of Durgamma played by Chaya Devi, who equally quarrels with Gundamma in the film? A few suggested the name of Hema.
Well, here are the possible actors for the characters in the film came in discussion.
NTR (Anji)- Jr NTR
ANR (Raja)- Naga Chaitanya
Savitri (Lakshmi)- Keerthi Suresh
Jamuna (Saroja)- Samantha Â
Suryakantham (Gundamma)- Anasuya
Chaya Devi (Durgamma)- Hema
SV Ranga Rao (Ramabhadriah)- Prakash Raj
Harnath (Prabhakar)- Sumanth Or Sushanth
L Vijaya Lakshmi (Padma)- Saloni or Praneeta
Ramana reddy (Ghantiah)- Rao Ramesh
The film “Meena” was rebooted by Trivikram with the title “A Aa” and that made good sound at the box office. Similar rebooting can be done with Gundamma Katha. Also with the success of Mahanati, it is proved that the respect for old actors and old stories is very big among the contemporary audience. Let us wish the bigwigs from any big banner think about it seriously to make it happen by 2020 at least!
