The rumour-mills of Filmnagar are rife with the ‘inside information’ that the basic storyline of ‘Athidi’ is taken from Super Star Krishna’s yesteryear hit ‘Ramarajyam Lo Bheemaraju’,updated to the present social scenario with incidents moulded to suit the taste of today’s youth. With Tollywood suffering from acute poverty of mind, ther is no other alternative but pick stories from good old flicks and present them with modern packaging frills. By the way, can it be plagiarism if the son takes the story of his father ? It is nothing more mundane than mere transfer of property rights.Right ? But the Director is said to have been totally inspired by the Hollywood Film ‘Man on fire’.
Is Athidi a Remake?
