Salman Khan: Salman Khan’s Bollywood remake of the Marathi film ‘Mulshi Pattern,’ titled ‘Antim: The Final Truth,’ has failed to impress the original makers. The film, released in 2021, faced a lackluster performance at the box office, and now the discontent has spilled into the open.

During a recent appearance on the Marathi digital platform Bol Bhidu, Pravin Tarde, the director of the original film, and Upendra Limaye, a star in both versions, expressed their strong opinions regarding the Bollywood adaptation.

Pravin Tarde’s Harsh Critique of Salman’s Remake

Pravin Tarde, who directed ‘Mulshi Pattern,’ candidly revealed his thoughts about Salman’s involvement in the remake. He mentioned how Salman praised ‘Mulshi Pattern’ but claimed that the Bollywood actor completely mishandled the adaptation. Tarde emphasized that the integrity of ‘Mulshi Pattern’ was lost in ‘Antim,’ to the point that he has not watched the remake and does not intend to do so.

Upendra Limaye’s Comparison of Both Versions

Adding to Tarde’s remarks, Upendra Limaye, who worked in both films, shared his unique perspective. He lamented the loss of authenticity in ‘Antim,’ suggesting that the film’s essence was killed in the name of refinement. The disappointment was evident in his words, reflecting a sentiment that the remake failed to capture the soul of ‘Mulshi Pattern.’

A Wider Impact on Salman Khan’s Reputation?

These criticisms from the original creators may add to the concerns surrounding Salman Khan‘s recent works. ‘Antim: The Final Truth’ was seen as a significant release for the actor but fell short of expectations. The remarks from Tarde and Limaye may fuel further discussions about Salman’s influence on remakes and his role in shaping or misshaping original content.

Salman Khan’s ‘Antim: The Final Truth’ continues to be a subject of controversy, particularly with the original makers voicing their discontent. The disappointment expressed by Tarde and Limaye serves as a poignant reminder of the challenges in remaking films, especially when cultural authenticity is at the core. These comments may lead to further reflection within the industry on how remakes should be approached.
