'Newton' Bears Close Resemblance To Iranian Film 'Secret Ballot'

Adjust Comment Print

"Newton" is as much a copy of "Secret Ballot" as The Avengers is of Watan Ke Rakhwale.

Rajkummar Rao-starrer Newton, which has been garnering huge appreciation from every corner ever since its release, has shown tremendous growth in its box office collection after it was announced as India's official entry to Oscars this year. That was the reason it received awards in prestigious film festivals like Berlin and Hong Kong. Similarly, in "Newton", Rajkummar, who plays the role of an election officer, goes to a Naxal-controlled area in Chhattisgarh and requests people in the area to vote.

Newton is a black comedy helmed by Amit V Masurkar.

Rajkummar Rao and Naseeruddin Shah are considered as giants of alternative and content driven cinema in India and people are referring Rajkummar as new age Naseeruddin Shah, reacting to that comparison, Rajkummar said, "It's a great compliment".

The political satire "Newton" which is directed by Amit Masukar, depicting election in remote jungles of India, is giving a new hope to the country's long dry spell of films at Oscar. "Newton is not a copy of any other film, it isn't even inspired".

According to the report of The Indian Express, trade analyst Girish Johar said that the first day of the film's box office collection would be from 1 to 1.5 million rupees. After the film's release, there were few fingers pointed toward the film being a remake of an Iranian movie, called Secret Ballot. "I had no idea about "Secret Ballot".

We encourage all our readers to watch this film in theatres as it is well worth your money. The Rajkummar Rao starrer has left all competition behind and brought in Rs. 2.52 crore at the Box Office. While most of India's submissions were in Hindi, Tamil films were submitted by the committee on nine occasions.
