Kaththi film starring Vijay and Samantha directed by A R Murugados had already become a huge hit all over. The film reportedly grossed above 100 crores and still going strong in theaters. But the issues regarding the film not seems to get over very soon. Earlier there was some confusion regarding its date of release as Tamil cinema artists and other members went on to strike on the issue of Jayalalitha. Then some planned degrading against the film after release has been spotted and it resolved as the film got very good mouth publicity. Now another issue popped up.
Now it’s the plagiarism issue of Kaththi story, scenes and music. The news is that Kaththi first look poster is inspired from Kevin Cosiner’s English film ‘3 days to kill’ and other film named ‘The words’. They also says that Kaththi film’s motion poster teaser is clear cut copy of New york Times Newspaper ad. And when we looks into the matter, it seems quite clear that the above mentioned films and advertisements had clearly inspired the team behind Kaththi.
Another allegation is that Kaththi theme music ‘the sword of destiny’ is loosely inspired from the ‘Immortals’ album. And there also we can find the similarity when we hear the above mentioned album. Kaththi film music is composed by Anirudh ,the young music sensation of Kollywood. Kaththi film title sequence is also under the scanner as it is said to be inspired from ‘True Detectives’ an English thriller serial. And some scenes in kaththi is also said to be taken from somewhere else. The jail escape plan in the film is taken from the ‘Tunnel break out’ TV serial. The coin fight scene is one of the best scenes of the Kaththi film and unfortunately that scene also under the scanner as it is said to be inspired from the film ‘Black belt jones’.
And the most important of all these is that one MR. Gopi from Tamilnadu claimed that the full script of Kaththi film was written by him. He accused the team behind kaththi of absolute plagiarism. Anyway its time for the kaththi team to speak up about this allegations. Especially Murugados has to answer this as he is the captain of the ship called ‘Kaththi’.
