Social media is divided by Kamal Haasan’s adaptation of the iconic film Sathyaa: “Please don’t ruin it.”

The portrayal of an enraged young guy in Sathyaa by Kamal Haasan, who was against social injustice and the nation’s unemployment rate, had a significant impact.

Social media went ablaze with jubilation when Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan’s cult class Sathyaa celebrated its 36th year in January of this year. Famous filmmaker Suresh Krissna made his feature film debut with Sathyaa, which starred Kamal and Amala Akkineni. When it debuted in theaters in 1988, it quickly rose to prominence as one of Tamil cinema’s best hits of that year. News of this classic’s current adaptation or remake surfaced on Wednesday, starring Ashok Selvan and directed by Vignesh Raja of Por Thozhil. Ever since this news surfaced, social media has been divided on it. See also: Five decades of Kamal Haasan’s best work.

In the 1988 movie, Kamal Haasan portrayed Sathyaa (Sathyamurthy), a rough-and-tumble young man without a job who can’t stand injustice of any kind and frequently gets into fights. Additionally, he meets and falls in love with salesgirl Geetha (Amala Akkineni) one day.
The narrative then shifts as Sathyaa discovers the truth, but not before a dishonest politician uses Sathyaa for his own purposes. It’s interesting to note that Sathyaa was a remake of the Sunny Deol Hindi movie Arjun, but Suresh Krissna, Kamal, and Ilaiyaraaja left their lasting marks on the movie, turning it into a cult favorite in Tamil.

Nobody can take Kamal Haasan’s position.
The announcement that Sathyaa and Ashok Selvan will be playing Kamal Haasan on X (previously Twitter) did not seem to sit well with many users. On social media, one person stated, “My all-time favorite movie is Sathyaa.” Ilayaraja and Kamal cannot be replaced in that. Don’t spoil, please.

“Adhu innum paakala (haven’t seen that film), but his other movies paathadhu varaikum solren (seen others),” wrote another user. “I know we all know the actor is acting and it’s fake nu, but romba rare aana scenes la dhaan he’s convincing (personal opinion),” the user said, adding a sad emoji to his comment.

It will be quite difficult to emulate Kamal Haasan in this movie, and many of his followers believe that no one can match him. In a nutshell, one user said, “Don’t remake Kamal movies because it is impossible for him to act at that level.”

Actually, Kamal’s involvement in the movie extended beyond his performance in the title role. One commenter wrote, “I know that Satya itself is a remake of Arjun,” rather appropriately. However, Kamal was quite adept at adding a regional flair. Instead of having the dialogues be a literal translation of the Hindi phrases, he had Ananthu create the lines that dripped with power. The casting was also excellent.
