A familiar image

The poster for Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s film "Velayutham" was ‘inspired’ by a familiar image from hit console game "Assassin’s Creed", and now the poster for his upcoming film also features an image some might recognise!

The newest poster for "Thuppakki" shows the actor carrying the film’s leading lady Kajal Agarwal in an image reminscent of an iconic image from 1982 Hollywood film "An Officer and a Gentleman" starring Richard Gere. In both, the actress wears the hero’s military-style hat, with her arms thrown around his neck as they gaze into each other’s eyes. As if that wasn’t enough, even the positioning of Kajal’s legs are almost identical to Debra Winger’s!

"Thuppakki" has already found itself in a spot of trouble, as the director of another film filed a case claiming that the name was too similar to his own film "Kalla Thuppakki"!

What do you think? Have the Thuppakki team been "inspired" by the poster for An Officer and a Gentleman? Or this just a strange coincidence…?
