Ugh -_- That's not Bollywood. It's Tollywood, I think(Indian, but not Bollywood). And you'd think they'd have run out of stuff to copy -_-

I don't see a single Assassin, Templar or Abstergo logo, or a single weapon used that exists in any Assassin's Creed game.

The lead character's outfit has clear differences from Alta´r's, while resembling that more than any other outfit in any AC game (including those of background characters).

The parkour is less realistic-looking than in any Assassin's Creed game (quite an impressive feat in a live-action film, when you think about it).

And more importantly, is it actually a full movie, and are people making money from it? Because unless they include unedited or minimally-edited material taken directly from the copyrighted product, or use specific copyrighted symbols and designs, the only way something this loosely based on Assassin's Creed would qualify for prosecution under international copyright laws would be if it's being used for a profit - either to advertise something or being sold as a product in its own right.

The last time I saw a post about this (something like a year ago) it was pretty lame. This vid though, I actually enjoyed quite a bit.

well isn't it more of "stealing" intellectual property?

It is a full movie. And the actors are not small actors, they are pretty big ones in their own industry. And according to my friends down south (India), this movie was actually a big hit.

Oh, Kollywood. xD All the southern ones look similar, so you can understand my confusion :P
