Is that ultimate emotional scene from Jersey, a copy?

Jersey from Natural Star Nani, written and directed by Gautham Tinnanuri, became a classic for his fans and TFI audiences as it offered them a new emotional experience. As Majili starring Akkineni Naga Chaitanya, Samantha also released at the same time, there has been an unhealthy comparison between both the films.

In any case, Jersey did not become as bigger hit as Majili - box office wise but it is revered as a classic. Some of the challengers to this "Classic" status have been talking about the de-merits in the film, devouring merits that many talk about, from long time.

The ultimate merit of the film that many get really connected to, is the "Railway Station scene". After getting selected to Ranji team at the age of 36, that too, re-starting his career at that age with a long gap of 10 years in-between, hero shouts out all his anguish and relieves his frustration in happiness there.

Now, this scene from Dulquer Salman's film, has the same scene but the context is different. Here too hero screams out in frustration near a moving train. This movie released before Jersey.

Is that ultimate emotional scene from Jersey, a copy?

In Jersey scene, the hero after triumph shouts in pure joy to show the emotion that he normally holds back behind arrogance and silence. In DQ's film, the hero is completely frustrated that the life is playing games with him and his love decided to leave him.

Both are outlets of anguish and contexts that two directors have used are different. Before saying it a "copy", we have to see this too. This becomes an inspiration from that point of view. Well, anyways, both the directors got the idea from Hollywood movie, Cabaret.

Hence, it comes down point of view. If you don't want to give Jersey credit - the scene can be ridiculed as copy, ignoring everything else. If you want to see Jersey as an absolute classic - you can enjoy the scene and the emotion behind it and after it as well. It can be an iconic moment for you or it could be just be a random expression of emotion. It all depends on your Point of View.

Just remember, if there are people who call Mayabazaar a classic, then there are people who deny that the movie should be revered so highly. Even Shankarabharanam, Sagarasangamam, Lava Kusa kind off films too face it. At the end of the day, a film is an expression of a writer that inspired a collective team to make it into a film. Either you see it as a classic or mere entertainer or just a copy piece that got lucky, in the end it all ends up being a perception.
