Film made headlines after plagiarism allegation
Meanwhile, the movie made the headlines recently after Kerala-based music band Thaikkudam Bridge accused the makers of plagiarizing their number Navarasam. They alleged the popular song Varaha Roopam from Kantara was copied from Navarasam. While the song was banned from the movie after initial trials, a recent court ruling lifted the ban and reportedly permitted the makers to include it in the movie.
