There is a famous quotation – Copy from one sources, it’s called ‘Plagiarism’. Copy from two or more sources, it’s called ‘Research’. Director Vijay belongs to the latter category as he addresses that ‘I am Sam’ isn’t the only inspiration, but from several movies and his personal life experience.

Says Vijay: “I have persistently reading the news that DTM is a remake of Hollywood film ‘I am Sam’. The central character of Krishna (played by Vikram) is inspired by personal life as I had a relative with the same mental growth. Apart from this, I had watched several films like ‘Rain Man’ and ‘Left Foot’…”

The director has been strictly adhered to the practice of remaking movies that extends right from his debut film ‘Kireedom’ followed by ‘Poi Solla Poram’. Although ‘Madharasapattinam’ is praised for his best visual treat, it had lots of resemblances of ‘Titanic’, ‘Gladiator’, etc…
