However, there is news about the movie that is defaming the film and discouraging people to go and watch it. On one hand, critics are lauding the storyline and concept of the film, there are people on the other hand who are calling it a copy of an Iranian film ‘Secret Ballot’ released in 2001 by Babak Payami. There is no doubt that the movie ‘Newton’ does have uncanny similarities with the Iranian movie but the director has responded to the speculations and said that ‘Newton’ is neither inspired by nor a remake of the film ‘Secret Ballot’.

The news has also started a debate on the history of Bollywood’s habit of recycling scripts. But, there are people who have stood by Amit Masurkar and have slammed people for calling ‘Newton’ a copy. One of them is the famous filmmaker, Anurag Kashyap.
