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 wonder that.
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?
