Mazhai: from some telugu movie :confused:
Pokiri: from telugu pokiri
Santosh..something: to be made from telugu hit Bommarillu..
Ofocurse telugu movies make a huge chunk of tamil remake and dub..
We should be proud that Ghajini is remade in Hindi and movies like Mudhalvan were blockbusters when remade in Hindi.

I was reading tell me your dreams novel and half way through I realised the plot of 3 characters in different shades with one for revenge resembled Anniyan. I just discovered it and did a google search to confirm... see this link.. but the good point of Anniyan is.. he has a message...
Antha moviela.. after the female character comes out of rehab after treatment for split personality disorder in the end of the book she will still go on to take revenge...similar to the climax in Anniyan

Devar Magan
you will be surprised. Kamal he himself told the inspiration for the movie was "God Father". Now put shivaji as the Marlon brando, Al pacino as kamal, the barzinni and other mafia's as Nazar. Gang wars into clan fights, you got the Devar magan. It is definitely a great adaptation; lot of credit goes to kamal. But still inspired, by his very own words.

Virumandi
The great thing about the movie is not the story line.But how the movie is narrated. Unfortunately a very old technique, used by kurusawa in the 50's.Actually kamal is not the first to be inspired by Kurusawa's Roshmon, vennai balachander's has already taken "Andha Naal" on the same style.Jail interviewing part is from "The Life of David Gale".

I did'nt mean completely. Put Bhoomika in place of Bhagyaraj, Surya in Ambika's and Jothika in Rajesh's place. The latter half plot is almost similar, although the screenplay is different.
