At a time when Mega fans are completely rejoicing in the success of Allu Arjun’s blockbuster hit ‘Race Gurram’, the creative ‘theft’ done by music director Thaman is surely gonna irk them. And it is happening at the moment as the news went viral everywhere.
Thaman is not new to lifting tunes as he has this history of copying tunes of popular European singers and composers and incorporating them into Telugu movies. We have seen that in Businessman where he copied an Italian song to score the popular ‘Pilla Chaav’ that was shot on Mahesh and Kajal. In the same way, Thaman has now copied Romanian singer Matteo’s popular song ‘Amandoi’ to make ‘Sweety..’ song in Race Gurram movie. Not just a ‘pallavi’ or a ‘charanam’ but Thaman lifted the whole tune blatantly and simply added Telugu lyrics to it.
While his copying acts come under any infringement of copyrights or not, surely Mega Fans are not happy with Thaman’s unashamed lifting of a tune for a blockbuster movie. This is going to stay like stain on the history created by Race Gurram.
