Followed by the controversial statement of producer Thenappan, another Director of Kollywood has came up with a complaint. It all started when fans compared the plot of 1999 film Minsara Kanna and 2019 Oscar winning film Parasite. K.S Ravikumar, the director 1999 film Minsara Kanna has expressed his happiness on “Parasite” winning the Oscar in 4 categories. The filmmaker who said that he hasn’t watched the movie yet, said that he feels extremely proud for thinking of a story similar to “Parasite” 20 years ago.
About filing a case against Parasite makers, K.S Ravikumar said, “Producer Thenappan is the one who has the rights to take legal actions.” Producer Thenappan said “As far as it is a case against the people of foreign countries, we have to employ a foreign lawyer. I saw Parasite and I feel that they have stolen the film’s crux from Minsara Kanna. I am in talks with International Lawyers and contemplating on filing a case against the makers of Parasite. I will let you know about the details soon.”
The main themes of Parasite are class conflict and social inequality. Film critics and Bong Joon-ho himself have considered the film as a reflection of modern capitalism. The similarity between “Minsara Kanna” directed by K.S Ravikumar and “Parasite” is the members of a poor family getting employed to a rich family without introducing themselves as a family members. The Tamil film which was released in the year 1999 became a box office dud during its release time.
Now, in a way of trolling the activities of Minsara Kanna makers, director C.S Amudhan who is known for making parody of Tamil films, posted a tweet comparing the world famous “John Wick” of Keanu Reeves with his sequel of Tamizh Padam. He wrote “It has been brought to my notice that certain elements of John Wick like his dog being killed to bring him back to his old job, strongly resemble key plot points of Tamizh Padam 2. We will keep all our legal options open.” to troll the producer of Minsara Kanna.
