Arjun-Sonakshi starrer is an official remake of Telugu blockbuster Okkadu
Amidst great fan frenzy and expectations, the makers of Tevar released the trailer of Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha's action flick. After watching the 'tevarrific' trailer, we have to say that the Arjun-Sona starrer has hit the bulls eye in terms of satiating the expectation of the masses. But not many know that Sanjay Kapoor's Tevar is actually an official remake of 2003 Telugu blockbuster Okkadu starring Mahesh Babu.
After scrutinizing the trailer of Tevar, we feel that the Bollywood remake is true to it's original and has not tried much to give a spin to it. Bollywoodlife brings you five similarities between Mahesh Babu's Okkadu and Arjun Kapoor's Tevar:
Mahesh Babu portrayed the role of a Kabbadi player onscreen in Okkadu, and the trailer of Tevar gives you a glimpse of Arjun Kapoor's Kabbadi antics. His final dialogue in the trailer,"Kabbadi Kabbadi Kabbadi" only drives home the point that Arjun will be see as a Kabbadi player.
Manoj Bajpai impressed us as the villainous politico who is in love with Sonakshi, which is strikingly similar to Prakash Raj's character in Okkadu who is obsessed with Bhoomika Chawla.
The way our lead pair of Arjun and Sona meets is also pretty similar to how Mahesh Babu meets Bhoomika meet in Okkadu. In both the flicks, the hero meddles into the villain's business when he sees that the baddie is publicly forcing a girl to marry him, and decides to free her from the clasp of the rowdy MLA.
The trailer of Tevar indicates plenty of action and chase sequences as Manoj Bajpai relentlessly hounds Arjun and Sona. Even in Okkadu, Mahesh Babu and Bhoomika Chawla were constantly on the run from Prakash Raj.
In both Tevar and Okkadu, the cities of Agra and Hyderabad respectively, play very important roles in the film which also happens to be our heroes home towns where they hide the heroines from the deadly villains.
