I saw it too and found it to be 'inspired' from Falling Down! However, when I did my bit of research, I read interviews on the web by the director Nishikant from the time when his original marathi version Dombivili Fast was released. He has never claimed that the film is original. He has always attributed the germ of the story to douglas's Falling Down. Apparently dombivili fast won several awards, and at each award function, Nishikant has come forward and always said that his film is inspired from Falling Down. I guess atleast he is honest. Thats more to say than most indian directors who shamelessly copy and shout from rooftops that they havent (Partner- hitch, aja nachle - brazilian film, rang de basanti - jesus of montreal etc etc).
I thikn as long as the inspired indian film is good, and due credit is given to the original, I have no problems with it. what say ppl?
And this film i think is very very good. progressive!
i just came after watching this movie...was awesome comparing to the usual masala movies we watch..though it is nice to watch masala movie once in a while its always nice to watch realistic movie like these once in a while..madavan was amazing with his performance..the dialogues which he gives in the early hours with tht young boy in the road where really true n brilliantly shot along with the BMG...a thoughtful movie...n a wonderful performance by maddy
