Is Thupparivalan inspired from Sherlock Holmes

For the first time after the commencement of shooting of Thupparivalan, director Mysskin has recently opened up about the flick.

While it was an open secret the movie is a detective thriller, the first look poster where the lead Vishal was seen wearing a coat and hat gives an impression of close resemblance to Sherlock Holmes.

However, the director has said that the film has nothing related to Sherlock Holmes or other detective movies.

‘There is a difference between inspiration and Plagiarism. I have learnt a lot from my previous movies and I know can make 200 more movies in the same genre,’ he said.

He said Vishal perfectly suited the role and took whatever inputs were needed for the character. The star cast also includes Prasanna, Anu Emmanuel, K Bhagyaraj and Andrea Jeremiah.

The movie is slated to be released on 11 August
