If you look at the other directors’ films remade by Priyan, you can see that he has remade almost all the films of hit makers of Malayalam cinema Siddique- Lal. All their films are based on humour. Priyan remade their 4 films, Ramjirao speaking, In harihar nagar, Godfather and Mannar mathai speaking
One of the greatness of Priyan is that he has helped so many actors to come out of their stereotype roles. He made so many villains and character role actors into comedians, Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Sunil Shetty and Akshay Kumar are some examples.
In Malayalam he started this trend of breaking so many actors’ stereotypes.
Aesthetics of song sequence is another specialty in Priyan’s film. In one of the interviews, Priyan says there are two ways in which songs decide the course of the movie.
- For a relief and,
- For taking the story forward
His Malayalam movies like Thenmavin Kombathu and Kilichudan mambazham are great examples of this.
Now we look at movies remade by Priyan in Hindi but originally directed by others in Malayalam

Now if you look at Priyan’s Hindi films, you can see two types of remakes,
1. Film that was originally made in Malayalam by Priyan himself and later he remade in Hindi
2. Film that was originally made in Malayalam by others and Priyan remade in Hindi
So in this part let us look at the first instance i.e
