Drishyam makers in Trouble?

Monday, July 21, 2014 • Malayalam Comments

As the Bollywood producer Ekta Kapoor has sent a legal notice to the producers of the Malayalam movie Drishyam' claiming that the script of the Malayalam film is not original, Jeethu Joseph and producer Antony Perumbavoor are finding ways to clear the allegations. Ekta argues that 'Drishyam' is an adaptation of a Japanese novel titled 'The Devotion of Suspect X' the rights of which has been brought by Ekta Kappor to be made into a Bollywood movie.

The award winning Japanese novel which has been made into a film named 'Suspect X' and again as 'Perfect Number' in South Korea, has got many differences in plot from Drishyam'. Except for the cleverly done, step by step, cover up activities, the basic thread and its development appear much different from the Malayalam movie. Antony Perumbavoor is reported to have already replied this to Ekta's lawyer and is waiting for the response from them.
