On 22nd of March, the Madras high court passed a verdict that they refuse to grant injunction to release “Valimai” on OTT. The court order also reportedly stated that there was no prima facie case made out for infringement of copyright by the petitioner.

Days ago, a case was filed in the Madras High Court against the makers of “Valimai” alleging that the story line of the film is similar to 2016 released Tamil film “Metro” which was directed by Anantha Krishnan. But the court dismissed the case on grounds of no preliminary case of copyright infringement had been registered by the petitioner on 22nd of March.

“Valimai” revolves around a cop named Arjun who is about to hunt a biking gang which is involved in causing harm to the people of Chennai by providing drugs, committing murders and chain snatching by using their bike riding skills. When Arjun is all set to nab them with his experience in Police department, he comes to know about his own brother being the part of the evil gang.

Rest of the film lies on whether Arjun saved his brother and youngsters from tthe head of the evil gang. “Metro” also contains similar plot with aspects such as “Drug consumption”,  “bike riders”, “Chain snatching”, “brothers sentiment” etc.

Reacting tot the comparisons, Metro director Anandha krishnan came up with tweet in his twitter handle, writing “Right from the 1st show of #Valimai, I’m receiving calls regarding the comparison. This might just be a tiny inspiration or mere coincidence. The film is running good and bringing back Tamil cinema into life. As a fanboy, can’t wait for #Ajith sir’s next film”

However, “Metro” Producer Jayakrishnan decided to file a plagiarism case against “Valimai” makers as a response to which Vinoth, reportedly said that he will be asking Rs. 10 crore as compensation for defaming him by accusing him of such allegations. The filmmaker stated that he is contemplating filing a defamation case seeking rupees 10 crore against Jayakrishnan for the attempting to tarnish his image. The filmmaker also said that he made the film based on what’s happening daily in the society.

Meanwhile, Boney Kapoor came up with an announcement on Valimai’s OTT release on 25th of March on Zee 5. The producer made it official that the film’s theatrical run earned him Rs. 200+ crore.
