Is Muran a rip-off of a classic Hollywood thriller?
The Rajan Madhav directed, UTV produced film has Cheran and Prasanna in the lead roles.
The buzz in Kollywood is that the Rajan Madhav directed film is “inspired” from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1951 classic Strangers on a Train.
The storyline is about two total strangers meeting on a train and planning to kill someone the other person wants disposed of, leading to the final twist.
In Muran two strangers played by Cheran and Prasanna meet on road while travelling from Bangalore to Chennai, become friends and agree to murder the person who is a thorn in their life. How it goes horribly wrong for one of them forms the crux of the story.
