Seema Pahwa ‘Feels Cheated’ Because of the Similarities in her film Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi & Pagglait


We know that the film Ramprasad ki Tehrvi and the recently released Pagglait have some strange similarities between them. Actor-director Seema Pahwa feels cheated by those who worked on both films. Seema’s movie Ramprasad ki Tehrvi released on January 1 in theatres. On the other hand, Sanya Malhotra’s Pagglait released on Netflix in March. Both the films have a similar plot of a large, extended middle-class family from UP coming together for the funeral of a loved one. Seema feels cheated by those who worked on both the films and did not bother to inform her.

Speaking to Film Companion, Seema said the similarities between the two movies were ‘painful’ for her. “We made Ram Prasad Ki Tehrvi in 2018 and released it before at MAMI and other film festivals. Pagglait came after that and had some similarities, which was painful to see. The location it was shot at was the same as ours, there were similarities between the characters too. I thought that this was because both films have middle-class families, in which you find the same kinds of characters. Maybe that could’ve been a coincidence but the location being the same was a problem because the audience got confused between the films,” she said.

Seema added that the matter could have been resolved with a conversation. “There should’ve been some conversation between us and we could’ve changed some things to make our films more individualistic. There was ignorance on my part too because I found out too late that a film just like ours was being made. I feel cheated because there were people who worked on Pagglait who had also worked on Ram Prasad Ki Tehrvi and who knew about the film. It’s a little surprising that they didn’t see it as a second chance and make some changes. I haven’t spoken to them yet, but it was shocking,” she said.
