“Begunaah” (1957) was a movie whose story was plagiarised from an American movie namely “Knock on Wood” (1954). Plagiarisation from foreign movies have been going on from olden days and filmakers indulge in it with impunity even today. It would seem that “Begunaah” (1957) was the only movie which has even been penalised for this act. When Paramount Pictures, the makers of “Knock on Wood” (1954) came to know about the fact that “Begunaah” (1957) was copied from their movie, they look legal action in a Bombay court. Much to the astonishment of Indian movie fraternity and legal circles, the Indian court ordered the destruction of all copies of “Begunaah” (1957).
