Subject : Sharmeen Obaid copied the idea and name of my movie said Syed Noor

Veteran Lollywood director Syed Noor accused Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy of copying his idea and name to make the film which brought her a second Oscar within two years, Dawn News reported on Tuesday. Pakistani director of famous film 'Choorian' claimed that Sharmeen not only stole the central idea but also the name and script from a film he made about two years ago. Mr Noor's movie was named 'Price of Honour', released in 2011. Answering a question, Noor said he will not legally pursue the matter but he is disheartened to note that the idea and the name was copied but he was not given due credit. Speaking on the issue, Lollywood actor Moammar Rana criticised Chinoy for 'bringing bad name to Pakistan' through her movie and dared her to make a movie on the affectees of drone strikes on Pak-Afghan border region.

Sharmeen Chinoy was awarded an Oscar. Noor's movie, 'The Price of Honour' revolved around a brave girl from an impoverished background who challenges the existing status quo with noble deeds, education and human rights awareness. She was threatened of dire consequences by the powerful landlord mafia but they cannot defeat her courage and determination. Ultimately, she is subjected to severe punishments and is publicly humiliated. Rakhshi’s character was portrayed as a courageous woman who dares to defy the odds. Chinoy previously won the Academy Award for her documentary 'Saving Face' at the 84th Annual Academy Awards in 2012.
