Kannada movie director Prashant Neel has directed three films, and all three of them have been humungous successes at the box office. Prashant is best known for his KGF franchise, his gangster action film sequence made Yash a beloved star overnight nationwide. Rocky Bhai is the iconic character of recent times in the Indian movie industry. Now fans are waiting for KGF 3, but Prashant’s Salaar is a current hot topic.
Prashant Neel is the one who delivered one of the most successful films in Indian cinema, while on the other side, Prabhas is a Baahubali star, so this deadly combination means a sea of emotions from the fans. But things have taken a wrong turn for cine lovers, as some common fans and critics are not happy with the clash of the Bollywood vs Tollywood films ‘Dunki‘ and ‘Salaar‘ on December 21 and 22, 2023 respectively.
Is Salaar a Remake of Ugramm?
Since the clash between Salaar and Dunki was scheduled for Christmas 2023, there have been several discussions and claims circulating, often resembling official statements or deals. The people who support Dunki claim that Salaar is a remake of ‘Ugramm,’ while the supporters of Salaar claim that Dunki is a remake of the Malayalam movie ‘CIA’.
Ugramm is a typical Prashant Neel film that tells the story of a ruthless gangster, Shivarudra Lingaiah, played by Avinash. Later, the young dynamic character Agastya, played by Srii Murali, destroys his empire. Some reports suggest that the film’s music director’s statement hints that Salaar is a remake of Prashant’s own film Ugramm, while they also report that Salaar’s climax is different and next level.
Ugramm was released on 21 February 2014, and its IMDb rating is 8.1/10. The film also received critical acclaim and two SIIMA awards, including Best Debut Director (Prashant Neel).
Salaar-Ugramm Differences and Similarities
Salaar has Prabhas as the lead actor, while Ugramm is led by Srii Murali, but both films are action-packed directional ventures by KGF fame Prashant Neel. Ugramm was made under the production house Inkfinite Pictures while Salaar is a big-budget (approx 200-250 Crore) film under Hombale Films. The musician Ravi Basrur is also a common factor in both films.
Twitter users and fans are trying hard to degrade each other’s movie markets:
