Tees Maar Khan is a similar of an Italian comedy film: The similarities are startling! Tees Maar Khan, Farah Khan’s latest film starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif is a remake of an Italian comedy film starring Peter Sellers.
In director Vittorio De Sica’s 1966 comedy film After The Fox, Peter Sellers plays the clever con man called Fox. He has three bumbling sidekicks and plans to smuggle looted gold into Europe by pretending as a film director.
In Tees Maar Khan, Akshay too plays a clever connie called Tees Maar Khan. He has three subordinates, all goofballs. Akshay also pretends to be the director of a film to rob a train.
The similarities are truly astounding. We hear that Farah Khan and Shirish Kunder have made a lot of changes in the script to Indianize the plot. But the fact remains that TMK is a remake of After the Fox and Farah Khan too has admitted it.
She says the plot of TMK is the same as that of ‘After the Fox’ but there are many changes as well.
