The latest in the series of remakes is Nanban - the remake of the Hindi block buster 3- Idiots.
The lead roles in 3- Idiots : Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Boman Irani and Kareena Kapoor.
The lead roles in Nanban : Vijay, Jiva, Srikanth, Sathyaraj and Illeana
Vijay may have tried his best to replicate every movement of Aamir, but wish he had worked a bit on his look to be more convincing as a college student. Aamir excelled here looking young and with mannerisms so much like a student.
Jiva and Srikanth more or less did a job as good as Madhavan and Sharman Joshi.
Boman Irani enacted a strong character of Virus and he had equal weightage in the movie.- a memorable character. However Sathyaraj is almost like a dummy in the movie. Wish he had not toned down his dialogues and had been his usual self - the characterisation would have been much better.
Illeana is the only refreshing thing in Nanban and looks cool..
Overall, 3- Idiots is unmatchable and Nanban is an extremely good watch provided you have not watched 3- Idiots earlier and dont get into comparisons of both the movies like ME :-)
