"Naan oru thadava sonna... Nooru thadava sonna mathiri... (If I
say it once, it's equivalent to having said it a 100 times)" - It
is probably one such dialogue from blockbuster Baasha that
crossed the borders and reached the non-Tamilain communities all
across India. After 18 years, we have discovered a connection with
an English novel and it has paved way for people to assume that the
dialogue was copied from renowned Jane Austen's novel.
Jane Austen's novel 'Emma' has a line which reads, "If I've told
you once, I've told you a 100 times." The novel was published in
1815. Interestingly, Rajini's popular line has also the same
meaning. It has now made people in media circles to raise the
question whether director Suresh Krishna was inspired from the
dialogue or it was just a co-incident.
The Tamil dialogue stands top from all his other punch
dialogues. It may be because Baasha gave Rajinikanth a
new mass image in the role of a don in Tamil films and took him to
the new heights. Well, whether it is copied or it just happened by
accident, it has to be only answered by Suresh Krishna. Isn't?
