Copying designs of foreign movie posters to make hindi film posters is nothing new. It’s a thin line between “reference”and “plagiarism”. Also, there are some very standard poses when it comes to designing posters. Well, that doesn’t justify anything but click here and here for very interesting links on movie posters.

Click on the slide show and see what we mean by “One Pose, Many Posters”. First one is Heroine’s new poster, then the cover of Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi’s book The Lost Flamingoes Of Bombay, then poster of Romance and Cigarettes and the last one is promotion pic of Mariah Carey.

    there is something called interpretation, adaptation…one can’t copyright a pose…if that was aloud, everyone would be running out of options to click people, the human body can contort in endless, yet limited ways

    Haha… and yesterday I was reading this about India’s best poster designer. Who also did this one.

    I doubt if any of them copied each other other than of course Madhur B. Heroine looks as uninspired as a cheap rip off.
