Southern loudmouth Ram Gopal Varma thinks stealing from Hollywood movies and then boasting about it is a badge of honor.
Here’s the chutia RGV in his own words:
When I made Sarkar….I copied scenes from Godfather. I copied lines from Godfather. I copied character traits from Godfather. Probably that I’ve did it [sic] including if the shot is inspired or copied from Paranormal Activity even in Bhoot Returns.
– Trash film peddler Ram Gopal Varma
Source: Bollywood Hungama interview with RGV
The context for RGV’s braggadocio was during an interview with Bollywood Hungama to promote his upcoming release Bhoot Returns when the host asked RGV about Barfi expropriating scenes from several Hollywood, Japanese and Korean films.
Describing Sarkar as his acknowledged tribute to Godfather, RGV says talk of Indian directors ripping off scenes from Hollywood films is a subject not worth serious consideration.
“Because eventually at the end of the day everything anybody does is coming from some source. It could be a film, it could be a novel or it could be something someone said. It could be something someone read or whatever.”
What an effete defense from a movie-maker without a single creative cell in his body.
RGV also seems to be hinting in the interview that acknowledging the inspiration as with Godfather or Paranormal Activity is enough if there is copying.
Ha ha ha.
Obviously, notions of creativity and originality are completely alien to this gaandu a.k.a. RGV.
Boy, I am thrilled beyond words that RGV’s films are kissing the dust these days and nobody gives a flying f*ck for this jackass any longer.
