Saaho has been in controversy for plagiarism so much that it has officially claimed its name as the ultimate definition of Plagiarism in the dictionary.
Everything is a copy of a copy of a copy, there is nothing original in this world and no one takes this idea more seriously than the Indian film industry. The list of movies, songs and poster copied by Bollywood is so big that Mount Everest couldn’t out beat it. The one movie which has set the golden standard of plagiarism in this new era is Saaho. A film about the secret heir of a biggest underworld crime syndicate and millions of people involved after a black box. The story has unparallel similarity with director Jerome Salle’s 2008 fiction The Secret Hier: Largo Winch. The Telugu director Sujeeth Reddy’s Saaho has been accused of plagiarism more than Arvind Kejriwal has been slapped by the public. For example, take a look at the posters for Saaho.
The 350 cr movie was a failed attempt to resurrect Largo Winch which in itself was a super flop. Saaho’s screenplay which is a 12-year-old’s attempt to narrate Mahabharat accurately fails as majestically as Largo. At least Largo didn’t wast so much money over it.
‘Saaho is as bad Largo Winch.’ the french director tweet on his twitter handle. Copying is not bad, great artists like Quinten Trentino copies, hell Picasso even went far enough to say Good artist copy, great artists steal and genius artists make Saaho.
