Many would hate me for writing this article. Some of the darkest secrets of Tamil/ World cinema would be revealed through this post. Some of the movies listed here are actually copied from wonderful movies from around the globe and the original movies were never given the due credit. The makers of the movie might justify their act by saying that their copied work was an inspiration and they did not copy the whole movie. But still the readers have the right to get correct information and here it is. This is not an exhaustive list.
1) Kadhal Kondein
The movie which launched actor Dhanush as the next big thing in Tamil cinema is a ripped version of the Reese Witherspoon starrer FEAR. Due credits were not given for this movie. If you have not watched Fear, you can watch it now
Prabhu Solomon's Mynaa made it possible for Amala Paul to enter the film world. The film got many awards. Very few actually know that this movie was copied from the action movie Dog bite Dog
When we hear the word Roja, the two names that cross our minds are Maniratnam and AR Rahman. How could one forget the Chinna Chinna Aasai song? This movie is telecasted on doordarshan every year on India's Independence day. This movie is copied from the movie Sunflower. No credits were given too. Why would a director like Maniratnam do such a thing? Maniratnam has copied many such movies. His movie Anjali is also a copied version.
Universal star Kamal Hassan is known for his acting skills and his wonderful talents. He has another talent too. Yes, many of his movies are remakes and copied versions. The movie Thenali is copied from the flick What about Bob? Due credits were not given
5) The Joker
Who can forget the Joker from Dark Knight? He still haunts many of us in our dreams. The concept of joker was actually copied from a Tamil movie called Rudra. The Indian joker role was donned by the Steven Spielberg of Tamil Cinema - Mr.K. Bhagyaraj. He did not create any scene when Hollywood copied his idea in their movie. But he created a stir by complaining about the movie KLTA
Kamal Hassan's Viswaroopam which hit the screens after much struggle is a class work by Kamal Hassan. But his characterisation is a copied version of how Chronicwriter looked 3 years ago. Chronicwriter could have sued him for not giving due credits. But because he has a thangamaana manasu, he did not create any problem. Will Kamal Hassan share his profit with Chronicwriter. We have to wait and see
