Suing Hari Puttar

Hari is a common name in India and so is Harry, a common name in the west. Puttar means Son in Hindi and every Punjabi Parent in the history of Punjabi dhaba and Bhangra call their son as Puttar. So I don’t know what base does Warner have for suing the new Bollywood movie Hari Puttar. Sure, Bollywood has had its part with plagiarism, but suing over a name that “sounds like” is immature. I think we have to make them watch the bollywood movies that have actual plagiarised stories and scenes.


Incidentally, the upcoming Harry Potter movie – Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is postponed to Summer of next year – July 2009.

I am Putting together all this matter into a single atom sized Haiku and here it goes:

Potter moves,

Hari Puttar makes news,

Warner sues!

There, that’s it. There is nothing else left to be known.

By the way IMDB has a release date of September 12, 2008 for Hari Puttar, a comedy of Terrors. Let’s see if they can make that date in one piece and the same name.

  1. thats crazy really ..
    i just cant help but laugh …
    harry potter = hari puttar ..
    ROFL …
    well as u said there are hell lot of movies that copy the story without copyrights .. they should probably see that šŸ™‚

  2. Arvind – Yeah, it is crazy šŸ™‚ I dont know what they are trying to do.

    Reema – Yes I agree, of all the plagiarized ones they have to choose this!

    Vishesh – Well I don’t know if it is going to be a worth while movie but this news is going to generate some hype for the movie and give it some publicity.

  3. Reminds me of about that monkey business between Simonds and Bhajji. After all, ‘Teri Ma Ki….’ is a legitimate Indian swear word. So what if it sounds dangerously like ‘monkey’! Hari, the Lord, has bee around far longer than the ‘pottering’ that has produce many ‘Harrys’.

    Warner Bros don’t stand a chance. Their lawyers have adviced them in their own best interest! Hari Om.
