Bollywood films copying from foreign movies is old news. Now, the latest is copying of posters. Ek Villain by Mohit Suri starring Sidhrath and Shraddha Kapoor have released two posters till now. It is shocking that both their posters are direct ripoff of Hollywood flicks.
When there are lot of creative people in the entertainment
industry it is so shocking to see people copy even the posters for
their films. In the era, when there was no internet, Bollywood
films used to copy movies, songs, background score, action scenes,
plots and almost everything.
All these have reduced though since the emergence of Internet
where people can even find out if a poster has been copied due to
the vast and rapid flow of knowledge.
One would think that Bollywood producers might now stop
plagiarism but no.. there are still some hacks who not only copy
the entire plot but also copy dialogues, characters and even lift
an entire scene. Getting inspired by Hollywood flicks is completely
different from copying it blatantly.
Hope the Ek Villain team will realize that before they
come up with their next poster release.
Check the picture to know how much they have got inspired to copy the poster. The first poster was a direct ripoff of the Stepup movie, while the second poster release was a copy of Faceoff!
