Sanya Malhotra starrer Pagglait hit Netflix on March 26 and the movie has been receiving wonderful opinions. While the journey for the movie has been fruitful till now, it looks as if controversy has knocked the doorways for the staff of the Umesh Bist directorial. Turns out the members of Seema Pahwa’s directorial debut Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi are upset with the makers of Sanya’s movie and really feel it’s plagiarism.
If you may have seen each the movies and noticed, the premise is much like that of a member dying and the complete prolonged household coming beneath one roof for 13 days till ‘tehrvi’. While Seema Pahwa’s interpretation was that of a household and its complexities as an entire, Umesh Bist targeted on the woman who needed to lose her companion in simply 5 months, and what’s anticipated of her. But seems the uncanny resemblance has left the Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi staff very upset.
As per Bollywood Hungama, the staff of the Supriya Pathak starrer is offended due to the resemblance. The uproar is magnified as Pagglait is shot in the identical home Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi was. “The actors and other members from the team were quite upset and angry when they saw Pagglait. They couldn’t believe that the film is so similar in so many ways to Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi. From the location to the character traits to even camera angles, so many things seem to be copied is what they allege,” stated a supply.
Meanwhile, speaking to the identical portal was Seema Pahwa who stated she has no grudges towards the makers of Pagglait. But her actors being upset is justified. She says that she received’t name Sanya Malhotra’s movie a replica. But did speak concerning the ignorance makers had. She even stated they’d the time to transform their script. Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi launched on the MAMI Film Festival in 2019, a month earlier than Umesh Bist’s movie went on flooring.
Seema Pahwa stated, “Mere actors ka naraaz hona jaayaz hai. The team members are a bit disturbed over these developments. However, ours was an original film and so is Pagglait. I would not say that they copied our film. I guess it must be a coincidence. However, some things were in their control. They were aware of Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi and yet, they ignored the similarities. They could have tweaked the script a little. They had the time and opportunity. They have even shot their film in the same house where we shot Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi!”
When requested if she has seen Sanya Malhotra starrer, Seema Pahwa stated, “I have not seen it yet but I have got many calls from friends and unit members and their biggest grouse is that even the shooting location has been the same. I am sure because of the similarities, even they (Pagglait makers) must be having a tough time.”
Meanwhile, Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi hits Netflix at the moment (March 31, 2021) and the streaming big showcases Pagglait too.
