Kolkata: Just a day after Rajkummar Rao’s Newton was announced as India’s official entry to the Oscars, Kolkata24x7.com has discovered uncanny resemblances between Oscars winning director Satyajit Ray’s film called “Ganashatru”. Yes, the poster of the Newton is resembled with Ganashatru’s poster. Now the question is being raised that is it possible without taking any permission? The criticism has already started and the news spread in social media after that incident.
The main character of the film Ganashatru was a doctor who fights against the superstitions. And after that he turned into the Ganashatru. Satyajit Ray took the story from Henrik Ibson’s ‘The enemy of People’. What’s surprising is that Newton had its world premiere at the 67th Berlin Film Festival and it won the International Federation of Art Cinemas award, and no one spotted the similarities with another popular film at the festivals. It’s likely to cause some embarrassment to not just the team of this movie but also those who honored it on various prestigious platforms.
