IS MALAYALAM MOVIE MANICHITHRATHAZHU ADAPTED FROM PSYCHO

Psycho is an English Classic American psychoanalytical thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The film is based on the screenplay by Joseph Stefano, who adapted it from the 1959 novel of the same name by Robert Bloch. As the Title of the film indicates, the film depicts the story of a psycho with dual personality. Anthony Perkins played the role with an outstanding performance to exhibit the multiple personality disorder.

In Manichithrathazhu, a Malayalam movie directed by veteran director Fazil, similar topic of “Dual Personality Disorder” is handled in a Mallu culture way. The climax is definitely a plus point for Manichithrathazhu, but the core theme, I doubt, a copy of Psycho? The traditional concepts of “Ghost”, “Spirits”  and Lady Ghosts were effectively merged with the core theme of dual personality disorder. Box office flavors like, comedy, sentiments, are also added in quanta sufficient.
Manichithrathazhu has been remade into many languages in India, such as “ BHOOLBHULAIYYA” in Hindi, “CHANDRAMUKHI’ in Tamil, “CHANDRAMUKHI’ in Telugu, “APTHAMITHRA” in Kannada.
Just view the two movies and let me know, whether my analysis is true or not.
