The courts might as well start a separate division to handle the media-related cases. Recently, Kamalhasan was the target of complaint of plagiarism when an unknown associate director filed a complaint stating that he had stolen his idea for Dasavathaaram. When Vasanthiyum Lakshmiyum Pinney Nyaan was released, director Sharat Chandran Wayanad filed a complaint against the film's director and producer saying that they had stolen his story.
After all these years, the complaint has come for trial. As the lead actor of the film, Kalabhavan Mani appeared in the courts to testify. Ironically, Kalabhavan Mani is the hero of director Sharat Chandran Wayanad's present film. It will be a while before the court reaches its final conclusions and levy a fine and order compensations for the director.
