It is very common in film industry, when a particular genre film attains success, fiscally; a lot of copy-cats follow the same theme. A few years ago, a Ravi Jadhav directed marathi movie ‘Time Pass’, which dealt with adolescent love birds, fared astoundingly well at booking office. Now, a new upcoming Marathi movie ‘Slambook’ also deals with adolescent love. Trailer of the film, which was launched recently, in Mumbai, also gives an impression of copy-paste of TP.
