Malayalam super hit film Maheshnite Prathikaram is being remade in Tamil with Udhayanidhi Stalin in the lead role which was played by Fahadh Faasil in Malayalam. The Tamil remake is being directed by Priyadarshan who is known for making commercial hits. The remake is titled ‘Nimir’ in Tamil and features Namita Pramod in the lead role. The first look of ‘Nimir’ is out now which was released by Tamil top star Suriya Sivakumar. The film will be produced by Santhosh Kuruvilla. Expectations on Nimir will be very high since the original, Mahesinte Prathikaram, was a super hit film in Malayalam.

Recently speaking about the film and the cast of the film, director Priyadarshan said, “I am a great fan of veteran filmmaker Mahendran, who is doing a pivotal role in Nimir. I have watched all his films like Uthiri Pookal and back then I wanted to join him as an assistant, but unfortunately I could not. I am happy that I could get him on board to play the role of Udhay’s dad. He is a photographer in the movie who is also a dreamer (smiles). I asked him to suggest a title and he immediately said ‘Nimir’, which goes well with the theme of the film.”
Speaking more about why Udhay was chosen for the role, Priyan recently had said, “The film is a comedy drama and Udhay was my first choice for the central character. I am very confident that he would pull it off. The film is a comedy drama and Udhay was my first choice for the central character.
