Atlee addresses the similarities with The Dark Knight Rises, Mersal in Jawan: “In the process of creating things, of course you will create something closer to something”

en Bollywood News Atlee addresses the similarities with The Dark Knight Rises, Mersal in Jawan: “In the process of creating things, of course you will create something closer to something”

Atlee has also addressed the criticism regarding the movie scenes similar to a few of the Hollywood movies and Vijay’s movie Mersal.

Shah Rukh Khan starrer blockbuster Jawan is not only obliterating the Indian box office but also made a remarkable impact on the global box office. While the film continues to rake in profits in the domestic market, its performance in international markets has been exceptional. With Jawan surpassing the Rs. 1000 crore mark globally, it marks the second Rs. 1000 crore movie for SRK after Pathaan. Helmed by Tamil director Atlee, the director is very elated to see the response to the movie. However, he has also addressed the criticism regarding the movie scenes similar to a few of the Hollywood movies and Vijay’s movie Mersal.

In an interview with Film Companion, when asked about how people have spotted a few elements from the movies of the past, Atlee said, “People will say that”. Post interval, a man is seated on the chair in a mask similar to that of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. “I know people will say that, but I am not taking it from there. I have done Mersal, I have a wrestling scene in it, which is there in Jawan as well. I know that and it’s ok, both are my films. But when it comes to other films, for example, Bane from Batman. I want to cover the face of an actor in a film, which I want to reveal in the next part, so what mask can I go for? I have one half skull mask, one full bandaged mask, the entire film is about masks only, so I went with the mask that was designed by my production designer. That’s all. It was nice. If they call it Bane, that’s fine, that is a good reference,” he said.

He added, “In the process of creating things, of course you will create something closer to something. If the intention is the same, if I am doing the same thing, then it is wrong. If it echoes, that’s ok. If it is a good reference, I am ok. I know I have been criticised for this for a very long time. I have been to court, I have won the cases, by honesty and merit. I go by basics, I don’t have an intellectual brain. I am not a brainy writer or a great director. I am very simple, I know my craft this much, fortunately it is being translated well, I am happy.”

Jawan is a Red Chillies Entertainment presentation directed by Atlee, produced by Gauri Khan, and co-produced by Gaurav Verma. The film was released worldwide in theatres on September 7th, 2023, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
