Puri Jagannadh's stocks are low. The 'Liger' debacle is going to haunt him for a decade in many ways.
Amid talk that 'Jana Gana Mana' has been shelved, an interesting piece of gossip is being heard. The buzz is that the 'Pokiri' maker is going to fall back on a Korean film next. It is going to be an official remake if everything goes well.
If the gossip is true, Puri has taken an 'iSmart' decision. This is the best he can do at the moment. Since he has long ceased to conceive interesting stories himself, he should rely on a remake. Remaking a Malayalam, Tamil or Hindi movie is too small for his shoes. After all, he is a 'Waat Laga Dengey' director who is still not convinced that he has run out of original ideas. Remaking a Korean film fetch him some credibility. Ultimately, the film will click only if the treatment is fresh.
