Hari Puttar

September 23, 2008 at 7:20 am 2 comments

I was pleased to see that Warner Brothers lost their case against the makers of the Hari Puttar film. Whilst I really disagree with the film makers stating that the film had absolutely nothing to do with the J.K. Rowling books/movies (although, since they appear to have ripped off Home Alone.. it’s almost true), I’m still glad that WB lost purely and simply because well, as the film maker stated, “consumers who read the Harry Potter books, written by JK Rowling, were sufficiently educated to know that Hari Puttar was different.” The American film industry has been ripping off others for many years, it’s the same all over the world, countries rip each other off. In this case though, the Hari Puttar film, according to the trailer is a ridiculous piece of crap (which I’d still watch!) that is very much tongue in cheek and just … well, stupider than the Harold and Kumar films… if that’s possible. Oh.. I also detest J.K. Rowling. She’s so obesessed with protecting her IP which, when one considers how much money she’s made, is frankly ridiculous.

Here follows the Hari Puttar trailer as well as the (frankly much better) spoof one…

    Yea its good that they lost the case but the movie is not good!!! It was sort of over-hyped as it is the case with most of the new movies these days…

    Dude gimme a break

    even if hollywood rips off they atleast give credit to the movie which are copying their stories from and make far better movies than bollywood could even dream off.

    I am an Indian & I still hate bollywood movies coz half of them are copied without giving proper credit like hari puttar ( Home alone series)
    half of them have just masala in it..

    only some are good ( i am not speaking about the olden days)
