Not a exact copy of Oppam: director
Kavacha is remake of the Malayalam film Oppam starring Mohanlal. However, the Kannada version will have an additional track.”Ours is not a copy of the original. Also, Shivarajkumar is personally not for any remakes, but accepted the film only after the script was redrafted. At least 50 per cent of the story has been changed from the original version to cater to the Kannada audience. This action-thriller has new elements, which is what Shivanna’s fans look forward to,” he says.
Kavacha will release on January 18, and is one of the most anticipated films of 2019. The film features Shivanna in the role of a visually-challenged man, who protects a young girl from a serial killer. The film also sees Kruthika Jayakumar, Isha Kopppikar, Baby Meenkashi, Vasishta Simha, Jayaprakash, and Tabla Nani among others. The film made under Hayagriva Movie Adishtana is produced by MVV Satyanarayana and A Sampath, and has cinematography by Rahul Shrivastav.
