Copied or Inspired

Everything is inspired from something else. From automobile to complex design, softwares to operating systems and movies are not spared as well.

Recently there were many videos released saying that Kaththi was copied from this movie, that fight scene was from another movie, the song was copied, this was ripped & that was taken. I may agree with that partially, but I do have a question.

If the some scene's in Kaththi (that includes the teaser as well) claimed to be copied, then the same would agree if I say Velu Naicker was 'copied' from Vito Corleone and that inclusive of the hairdo up to the jawbone. The same would also agree if I were to say Jigarthanda was inspired Dirty Carnival with a tweaked second half, of course some scenes from movies like Hitchcock (Siddarth standing outside the theatre hall and counts). Also I dont know if some realise before Life of Pi, there was Duma. The difference was Duma was South Africa with journey on a land whereas Pi was travelling with a tiger on a boat. Both for the same reason.

The list goes on.

So no matter what, some way some how movies will have impacts from current happenings, from another life experience and some times stories. Its end of the day the story telling that matters. That is why, the disclaimer will always be there (though most of us dont actually read it) which says "This is a work of fiction. Events, characters and firms depicted in this movie etc etc..."

Despite all that, I am very sure some will still go on hating not only Vijai but also other movies, finding faults and failed to get entertained. To Vijai haters especially, thank you for your concerns and feedback, now I will go on being his fan and keep watching his blockbusters.

Valgha Valamudan.
