Unfortunate thing is that even a super talented writer and director like Trivikram also lifted story and scenes from a foreign film to carve out his Agnyaathavasi. In Tollywood, that may have happened many times but with Baahubali taking our image to the global level, any small copying act is getting caught. This is the time where we need to be more careful.
Some speculations are now doing rounds that Mahesh Babu’s upcoming film “Bharat Anu Nenu” also got some Hollywood inspired content. They say that this film is loosely based on Hollywood movie “The American President” that released in 1995. Directed and produced by Rob Reiner, the film has Michael Douglas playing President of the USA and it is a romantic comedy.
Currently as the trailer of “Bharat Anu Nenu” is not yet out, we can’t talk about the comparison’s between the two, but that English movie is the story of a guy who takes oath as USA president and has tough challenges to pass two new bills as the next election is approaching. In that process, he falls in love with an activist and she dumps him in the end as he is not standing by his oath. How the couple reunites in White House is the story.
Even in the case of Angyaathavasi movie, rumours have sprouted in a similar fashion that the film is a frame-by-frame copy of “Largo Winch” and after the film released it proved to be true. Now, what is the case of Bharat Anu Nenu? Only time will decide about these rumours.
