Nath says: "As a student of films, I had watched this great classic 20 times." It's not quite the viewing numbers of ultimate fandom, but the man has other things to do. The plan for this remake is to switch it up a little -- exchanging the Tangiers-inspired Rick's Cafe for a beachside restaurant in India and WWII for the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka (where Tamils have been fighting for a separate homeland). That being said, the film won't delve into the politics of the conflict, but just use it as a modern backdrop. Starring Suresh Gopi in Bogey's role and Mandira Bedi in Ingrid Bergman's role, Ezham Mudra will start shooting next month for release next year. I wonder if it will be dark and shadowy, like the original, or infused with that Bollywood color?
