“We are ecstatic to have the chance to remake such a beautiful and timely picture as Home, which makes such a pertinent but amusing comment on the society we live in today. In a statement, Vikram Malhotra, founder and CEO of Abundantia Entertainment, stated, “We have always believed in blending profound story-telling with heart-warming entertainment, and the Hindi adaptation of Home is another step in that path.
Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada films have given sufficient fuel for Hindi cinema tales for years, thanks to their entertaining and emotive stories. The Tiger Shroff-starrer Baaghi 2 (a remake of the Telugu film Kshanam), Ranveer Singh’s action comedy Simmba (a remake of the Telugu film Temper), and Salman Khan’s action romantic comedy Bodyguard (a remake of the Malayalam film of the same name) are three of the most successful remakes in recent years, grossing Rs. 101 crore, Rs. 100 crore, and Rs. 74 crore, respectively.
South Indian cinema, according to film experts, has mastered the skill of creating financially successful mainstream entertainers with drama and emotions, a recipe Bollywood has yet to master, as seen by the failure of big-budget films such as Thugs of Hindostan and Kalank. Most south Indian language films, particularly those in Tamil and Telugu, know how to appeal to the lowest common denominator while maintaining the plot’s integrity. Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the director of Kabir Singh, previously told Mint that while the Hindi film business was performing well in terms of scripting until five years ago, things have grown a little stale today, and the unusual approach (of these south Indian films) is a benefit.
