Drishyam Films’ & Jio Studios’ Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi directed by Seema Pahwa hit the theatres, earlier this year. The story of the film began with the demise of the patriarch of a family due to which all members of his family came together under one roof for 13 days to observe the rites and rituals following a death in a Hindu family.
However, many audience on social media have claimed that there is so much similarity between the recently released ‘Pagglait’ starring Sanya Malhotra and Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi. In the movie ‘Pagglait’ the story revolves around the sudden death of the son of a middle-class family and how his wife deals with the trauma. But here too the family comes under one roof for 13 days to complete all the rituals.
However, Drishyam Films refuted the rumours. The spokesperson said that the resemblance is completely a coincidence and both the movies are made differently with different aim. The spokesperson said, ” Our film premiered at MAMI Film Festival in 2019 and released in cinemas on January 1, 2021 to positive reviews and love from audiences and critics alike. We wish the makers of Pagglait all the best with their film, and hope our audiences watch both films to appreciate the subtle nuances of each”.
