The writer of “Beautiful”, Anoop Menon stated in an interview that the film was inspired by a real life incident from his childhood.
But we have observed that French Film, “Intouchables” have many similarities in the thread, plot and story base with “Beautiful”. This was a superhit in France, directed by Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano. The base story of “Intouchables” is developed by a true story discovered by these directors in a 2004 documentary film. The story is a friendship between Philippe, a rich quadriplegic and Driss, an unemployed young man. The film “Intouchables” was released in September 23, 2011, in Donostia-San Sebastian International Film Festival.
Readers may please let me know whether this observation is true or no.
