The much awaited teaser of Salman Khan's Tubelight was released yesterday. It was an interesting promo but had striking similarities with Hollywood film Little Boy.
But now it has been officially confirmed by the makers that the story of the film is based on American film Little Boy. Kabir Khan has given a special mention to the film in the credits of the teaser.
The original Little Boy was an emotional film revolving around the back drop of World war II. The film essays the struggle of a child in search of his father whose fighting the Japanese in the war. During this, he meets a magician/priest, who makes him believe that he has special powers and that if he truly believes, he will find his father.
In this case, it looks like Salman plays the boy’s character and may be in search of his brother, Sohail Khan. The teaser had a similar scene where Salman tries to move mountain with his hands. It actually moves but due to the Earthquake.
Looks like that SRK will play the role of the magician who helps Salman’s character recognise his power.
Check out some of the pics.
Little Boy received negative reviews on its release and was a box office flop. However, the film received recognization from the viewers after the release. Also the story is very emotional which can connect to the Indian audience.
