The Sanjay Dutt - Arshad Warsi starrer Anthony Kaun Hai? is all
set to hit theatres tomorrow. From the outer picture, the film is
touted to be a slick comic thriller. But then how original is the
story? If certain sources are to be believed, the movie may just be
a remake of the Hollywood film 'Who is Cletis Tout? At least the
striking similarity between the storyline of the two films makes us
Raj Kaushal's movie is based on the character of Master Madan
(Sanjay Dutt), a contract killer. Champ (Arshad Warsi) is his
target. But the question is, is Champ the actual target?
The Christian Slater - Tim Allen starrer Who is Cletis Tout?
which released in 2001 is also about a hitman and a case of
mistaken identities. Also, purportedly the hitman in both the films
see everything in terms of the movies and take references of
popular films in their dialogues. Add to it, one can't help but
notice the similarity in the titles, as well.
So the question now is not Anthony Kaun Hai? But is it
a remake of Who is Cletis Tout?
