Enthaanu Bhai… Original or copied?

Director Aashiq Abu, regarded as one of the most promising filmmakers in Malayalam now, has launched the album Enthaanu Bhai… from his forthcoming film Da Thadiya.

Soon after the album was uploaded on his Facebook page, the various Internet sites started discussing the song’s inspiration. Many feel that both the song and the video has an uncanny resemblance to Sneha Khawalkar’s album, Yere for MTV Sound Trippin’.

In fact, Aashiq Abu’s earlier film 22 Female Kottayam was heavily inspired from Sriram Raghavan’s Bollywood movie, Ek Hasina Thi.

Interestingly, we had mentioned about Aashiq’s recent remarks that most ideas would have inspiration from somewhere in an earlier report. Now the question is, how will you distinguish between an inspiration and a copy?
