TE3N Inspired/Copied from Korean movie Montage?

The TE3N trailer is good but it is very similar to the Korean movie Montage. The plot of Montage on IMDB says “15 years ago, a mother lost her child in a kidnapping case. A similar crime happens again and she won’t let him go this time.” The synopsis below the Montage trailer says “The statue of limitations is about to run out on a kidnap crime case that occurred 15 years ago. The mother who lost her child, the detective with a guilty conscience, and the kidnapper with his own secret. The three characters traumatized by the case try to solve it before it’s too late. ” Montage has a grandfather character too but it looks like they made the grandfather character the one searching for the child instead of the mother and instead of 15 it is 8 years.

Here is the trailer of Montage.

And here is the trailer of TE3N for comparison.

Quentin Tarantino has always been famous or infamous for ripping off scenes from various movies.

Even some of the lines are similar. Check out the episode Fair Game of TV show The Rebel.

SOTD: Tamally Ma’ak – Amr Diab

Check out the hit song Tamally Ma’ak by Amr Diab on his birthday.

The song was copied/plagiarized as Kaho Na Kaho in the movie Murder.

“‘Kaho na kaho’ is sung by Pakistani singer Amir Jamal and is his composition from his 2003 album by the same name. If you had heard the song, you’d have noticed Arabic lyrics that goes, ‘…tamally ma’ak’. And there lies the twist! This song was originally composed by Sherif Tag (lyrics by Ahmed Ali Mousa) and sung by Arabic singer Amr Diab under the name (what else?) ‘Tamally Ma’ak’ in the year 2000 (from the album of the same name). Amir Jamal simply lifted this song and added Hindi lyrics and used it in his album. This song has also found its way in to ‘Murder’, thanks to the Bhatts! Its one thing to copy a song with no credit whatsoever to its original composer and its completely another thing to use the same title/ lyrics in the copied version!” Link
