After the trailer release of Hindi Medium the whole Tollywood is reacting angrily to it’s content. The reason being its content and scenes are similar to the 2014 released Shiboprosad-Nandita Roy directorial Ramdhanu.
Strong reactions have been seen on social medium from many members of the Bengali film fraternity who strongly protested the copying of story and some scenes. Many have questioned that if a Bengali film copies a Hindi film then what happens. The answer lies in 2009 released Poran Jaye Joliya Re which had to face court case from Namaste London team due to similarity in content which was later on settled out of court.
So this time the tables have turned and a Hindi film is being accused of picking up content from a Bengali movie. There has been specific rules laid down for such scenarios. A production house can buy the rights of re making the film from the original producers.
In fact Shiboprasad-Nandita’s other movie rights have been bought by production houses like Mukta Arts who brought the rights of Eche, Bela Seshe by Viacom and Praktan by Vishesh Films.
Tolly stalwart Prosenjit Chatterjee has also raised concern in this case and has asked all in the industry to come together and fight for the cause.
