Kahaani maker Sujoy Ghosh rubbishes talks of plagirism

MUMBAI: Sujoy Ghosh has trashed stories about his film Kahaani’s climax bearing a striking resemblance with that of the Angelina Jolie-starrer Taking Lives.

The ending of Taking Lives shows a heavily pregnant Jolie sitting alone in her house when she discovers a serial killer. She tries to escape but is overpowered by him and is punched and thrown to the ground. During the altercation, the serial killer begins to choke her and eventually stabs her in her pregnant belly with a pair of scissors.

Jolie, seemingly unharmed by the stabbing, shocks him by quickly stabbing him with the same pair of scissors. As the killer lies dying, Jolie removes a prosthetic pregnant belly, and says the past seven months have been a planned trap.

In Kahaani, the protagonist Vidya Bagchi too is heavily pregnant and in search of a man who looks like her husband Arnab Bagchi. The lady also gets into a similar act by killing the person, not with a pair of scissors, but with her hairpin.

Said Ghosh, “Since I started making Kahaani, people spoke about so many sources that it has been copied from. In this country, where people don‘t know about Satyajit Ray, Yash Chopra and Manmohan Desai, it‘s amazing to note people are aware of films made in distant land seven years ago in 2004,” adding, “ does this mean two lookalike people from different parts of the world have the same root.”

According to Ghosh, his portrayal of Vidya Bagchi was to get to the fore the prowess of Maa Durga killing the evil. “Did Jolie also play Maa Durga or was she possessed by the goddess?” Ghosh questions.

While the Jolie film received mostly poor reviews, Ghosh’s Kahaani has turned out to be a runaway hit.
