The first trailer of Vikramaditya Motwane’s Udaan is out. And its pitch perfect. The trailer exactly tells what the movie is all about.

And now the problem! Why is the text in the trailer straight lift from one of our favourite trailers of last year – Where The Wild Things Are! If you dont believe us, just play the video. Inside all of us is HOPE. Inside all of us is Fear. Even the way it comes on screen, is the same. After Cannes, we had to see this ? Can any soul enlighten us ? Who cut this trailer ? Someone surely is Un-certain of few things! Beware!

    oh dear Varun k3! Yes, we have seen the film. Both the films. We know there is nothing common n we never said that. We also know all the struggle n sweat story. Seems u r here for the first time. Do check our old posts. N we also understand that being an AD, u must have given n taken a lot but will gain the least. But do go back to the post n read it again.

    Man!!! how can you call this plagiarism. both the promos are so damn different. I understand ur point about the supers, but for two words you are fucking up the whole promo. this is really unfair ya. and both the words fit perfectly in it’s own way in the udaan promo. maybe it’s inspired or something. but plagiarism…. dude nooooooo!!!! this is one of the best promo’s i’ve ever seen.

    Copying the taglines word to word is plagiarism… No two ways about that… Not on the part of the filmmakers though. And it rankles all the more seeing it in a trailer for a brave, original film like this. Wish we had better more innovative and original publicity designers here.

  5. jahan says:

    I do concede that the promo is well cut otherwise. Perhaps ‘for two words why fuck the promo?’ is a question you should ask the person(s) who made the trailer, and not the writer of this piece. Best of luck to the team of Udaan… We’re all dying to see the film.

    Regarding the font used in Udaan poster lifted from WTWTA, go & check Freaks & Geeks poster here -> http://bit.ly/Z3MVBu. Do you think Spike Jonze’s team got inspired there?
