Did they take the rights of the Korean thriller 'THE CHASER' or just copied it shamelessly as per the old Bhatt camp's tradition?
17 July 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

With MURDER 2, the decades old tradition of Bhatt Camp continues, taking it all (from the first frame to the last) from an engrossingly well made Korean Thriller called "THE CHASER" released in 2008.

In short, the director and his writer take 90% ingredients for their over-cooked script from the Korean Film. Then they add a love-sex angle to it as a mandatory clause of Hindi Film-making technique. To make it more spicier, they bring in some eunuch characters into the narration with the get-up earlier used in their own films, SANGHURSH (by Ashutosh) and SADAK (by Sadashiv). And further, sprinkling it with a few emotional sequences about some broken families, they are ready with their latest flick MURDER 2, taking advantage of the brand name of their earlier Hit MURDER.

As I have realised, many of my reader friends here would like to say that, "We don't really care if it's a copy or not, so cut out the allegation crap and just let us know whether the movie is good or bad and that's it."

In answer to that I would only like to say that MURDER 2 is an Open Creative Theft made by the Bhatt camp in this current age of world-wide- web. Now, a theft remains a theft, whether done carelessly or with utmost care and devotion. Even if it happens to be a too good movie (which fortunately it isn't), still it remains a Shameless Robbery of any other person's creative work and nothing else. And I am simply not interested in writing a detailed review of a copied movie.

However, for all my friendly readers, who are willing to know more about Cinema in details, I would like to present this movie as a fine lesson in learning few important things about Bollywood Film-making style.

1. Bollywood film-maker's biggest problem is that we still are not sure of what genre we are dealing in while making a film. The current MURDER 2 copies a fast paced cruel bloody Korean thriller "THE CHASER" which solely talks about a serial killer, murdering all the girls in the flesh trade. He is being tracked by a detective turned pimp whose all girls are disappearing one after another. The film starts and ends just around this one single track and has no-unwanted scenes in between talking about something else. In simple words, it's a Bloody Suspense Thriller and it remains a bloody suspense thriller throughout.

But MURDER 2 not even remains a thriller in its more than 2 hours of duration. There is an added track in it of a beautiful model girl who is in love with the hero as Love essentially has to be there like sugar or salt in a dish. There are many unwanted eunuchs and unmoving stories of broken families inserted into it which were not required at all. The soundtrack has surprisingly all love songs in a CRIME THRILLER movie like a variety served on the dinner table by its makers.

2. Secondly in this new age of fresh creative minds, we still follow double standards in showing the characters of our male and female leads. Now in the original flick the lead character or the hero is an ex- dirty detective turned Pimp dealing in girl trade, who is searching for his missing girls. But in our Hindi version the hero becomes an ex-Cop turned detective looking for the serial killer as his private assignment. So the writers give a certain amount of respect to their Lead Male character played by Emraan Hashmi in the film.

But on the other hand MURDER 2 has a sexy-model character played by Jacqueline Fernandez, who simply has no definite role in the movie but is added only to be exploited as a female body.

So the point here is that at one end the makers give a certain kind of respect to their male Hero by changing him from a Pimp to a Cop- Detective. But on the other hand the female lead in the film is only used to show her skin and bring in more initial crowds in the theater as expected from the title of the film. That's the double standard mind-set Bollywood actually works in.

3. Thirdly after watching both the movies, you will have a clear idea of what it means by the term "Added Sub Plots" which in most of the cases ruin the real essence of a film. In this case too, where the original keeps walking on a single track and never gets distracted from its basic storyline of A Chaser, its Hindi copy keeps wandering between its various added subplots which could have been easily avoided. Frankly speaking we can't even stick to a basic storyline even when its all copied from another brilliant source.

4. Lastly and more importantly, if you even copy the idea for the Poster of your film along with its script then I wonder what the whole team actually may have done as far as creativity is concerned in this project. Here the makers of MURDER 2 not only copy their whole film from the Korean Original scene to scene, but they also copy their posters from a Danish film called "Antichirst" released in 2009 and a Korean film "Bad Guy or Nabbeun Namja" which came in 2001. Now that's really a great amount of research done by the team.

Summing up, with MURDER 2, the Bhatt camp continues to try for their next box office success in Hindi Cinema by taking the credit of all the hard work done by someone else residing in a different part of the globe far away……and they have really mastered this shameful act of "Art of Inspiration" by now. (However, I would love to be surprised with the impossible news that they actually did buy the rights this time.)
