Social networks are abuzz from today morning about young composer Thaman’s plagiarism. Cine lovers are busy accusing that he stole yet another stunning music track, this time from a Malayalam flick, and used it as background music for Superstar Mahesh Babu. However, truth seems to be inverse of this.

More than his song tunes, Thaman provides versatile and never before heard of kind sounds for background scores. His latest one for Mahesh Babu’s Aagadu is pretty outstanding. It catapulted Thaman into a big league of composers who are known for scoring exceptional theme music. However, netizens blamed Thaman saying that he copied the score from a Malayalam flick titled ‘Avataaram’, whose music is composed by popular Deepak Dev. Fans and Anti-fans are fighting over this, but the truth is on Thaman’s side this time.

Way back in May, Thaman composed the background score of Aagadu and some vocal hymns and chorus we hear in Aagadu theme come directly from Thaman’s mouth. But Malayali movie Avataram trailer was released just three weeks back and features the same theme song, including vocals. Is there any point accusing that Aagadu copied it? It is vice-versa!
