Newton Is Not A Copy Of Secret Ballot; The Iranian Director Confirms

Newton Is Not A Copy Of Secret Ballot; The Iranian Director Confirms”

However, as per the reports, the producer Marco Muller of Secret Ballot has himself confirmed that Newton is not a plagarization of Secret Ballot.

Gangs of Wasseypur director wrote on Twitter, "Newton is as much a copy of Secret Ballot as The Avengers is of Watan Ke Rakhwale".

A lot has been said about Newton's alleged plagiarism of Iranian film Secret Ballot. Anurag Kashyap began the defence with a tweet which would shut any haters instantly: "Newton is an award victor from Berlin Fest and I can promise you those curators watch more films in a year than rest of us do in a lifetime". Muller commended the movie and permitted Kashyap to share his response on social media. "He replied, "Please feel free as you see fit, there is not even a hint of plagiarisation", Kashyap, who spoke in defence of the film on Sunday, posted.

In what seems to be a suspiciously well (?)-timed move to hurt Amit Masurkar's highly lauded Newton, a sudden plagiarism charge hit the film out of nowhere on Saturday triggering off a heated internet debate on how eligible Newton is to represent India at the Oscars. He also shared the screenshot of his conversation with Mueller.

Both producer and director of Secret Ballot have rejected that Newton is a copy of their film. "I don't even know about the film or the story of Secret Ballot". I don't know yet if this interview is out. I hope this puts enough shame in our controversy mongers. now that's how a true artist thinks. But this is how he thinks and looks at us (indirectly).

"Thematic similarities are just that and I do not believe this would limit other filmmakers from rendering the same themes in their own voice".

Director Amit Masurkar defended his film and said, "The film has travelled to all worldwide film festivals and has been awarded, if it were a copy do you think this would have happened?" However, the film has gotten a clearance now and that too from the producer of the same film. "Newton is an award victor from Berlin Fest and I can promise you those curators watch more films in a year than rest of us do in a lifetime", wrote Kashyap. Muller has been associated with several prestigious film festivals and is also a part of Work In Progress (WIP) Lab of National Film Development Corporation's Film Bazaar in Goa. The most talked among them was that the film is a copy of Iranian movie Secret Ballot.
