Saaho Producers Were Unaware Of Unoriginal Script



While  pretending to be  celebrating the  so-called   Saaho  the  producers  of Saaho  are  laying  all the blame for  the  film’s  endless woes squarely  on  the  young director Sujeeth. The producers  hold the director  responsible for  the  film’s indecipherable  script and also for  allegedly  stealing the  idea  from  a French  film.

Apparently  the  producers had no idea about the smilarities between Saaho and  the French  film Largo Winch.

After  being accused  of  stealing poster designs  and the  props  and set design for a song,Saahonow stands accused of an even more serious  aberration.

The  plot of Saaho seems heavily  influenced  by the  2008  French  action drama Largo Winch.The fact was first pointed  out on twitter  by  perceptive  audience  members. Then  it  was the turn  of the Largo Winch director Jerome Salle  to make a sarcastic comment  on Saaho’s lack of originality.

    Salle tweeted, “It seems this second “freemake” of Largo Winch is as bad as the first one. So please Telugu directors, if you steal my work, at least do it properly?”

It may be recalled that  prior  to  Saaho, another  Telugu  film  Trivikram’s  Agnyathavaasi was  also  ripped off  from  the same French film. It defies all  logic why a second Telugu film would  seek inspiration  from the same French film when Agnyathavaasi had bombed so badly.

Apparently  the  producers  of Saaho had  no clue about  writer-director Sujeeth’s source of inspiration.

 Says a source, “Are  the producers mad  to  do a film on a  subject that had already flopped? Sujeeth(the writer, director) kept the producers in the dark about  the  source  of his inspiration. It’s  only now that they’ve come to  know  about Saaho’s   smilarities with  Agnyathavaasi and Largo Winch.”

Luckily for  the Saaho producers  Jerome Salle has not  threatened  to take legal action. At least  not yet.Who knows about tomorrow?
