First things first, Yogi is an exact copycat of Gavin Hood’s Tsotsi –a film that won 11 International awards including Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language -2006. The film won rave reviews across the globe and has been included in the list of 100 best world cinemas. Now the biggest question is that how come Ameer could just plagiarize the film with ease, not even marking the credit.
Well, filmmakers like Ameer keep criticizing the commercial filmmakers showcasing their self-aggrandizing nature. So, they just watch the film’s DVD and add some modifications to suit the tastes of Tamil audiences.
