Recently, fans noticed that the tracks "Dhamki Marr" and "Baby Kanipinchav" used for 'Kannayya' sound greatly similar, in fact, almost exactly the same as EXO's "Growl" and "Baby Don't Cry," respectively. Many grew furious at the plagiarism and demanded SM to take action.


On February 17, a rep of SM Entertainment spoke up about the issue and stated, "The controversial songs by the Indian artist are clearly plagiarized. We're planning to take action after discussion with the composer and the publisher."


Stay tuned for updates.

It's really bad considering I'm An Indian Telugu speaking EXO-l . Apparently the film is not a verified film, instead its made by people who had the access to releasing the film in Telugu industries. Tollywood being one of the most popular industries in the world should take action and see to it that amateur filmmakers should be punished for copyrights.

UPDATE: The film also copyrighted Super Junior Mamacita and the dance as well, I hope SM does something about it...

Every song on this soundtrack is plagiarized, except maybe #3. #1 is LC9's Mama Beat, #2 is EXO's Growl, #4 is Jason Derulo's It Girl (They even kept the whistle parts the same...wth!?! It's too obvious), and #5 EXO's Baby Don't Cry.

I think the first one is actually plagiarized from EXO's "Machine".

I'd thought the 1st one sounded like Mama beat but because the article hadn't mentioned it I thought I was hearing stuff

Man, I feel bad for the Indian Exo-Ls. This is so disappointing that KPOP in general is being plagiarized a lot and no one is confessing to it. Just be truthful and don't steal other's hard work. How long did it take for you to decide to use their work and say it was yours?

i am from India and i am embarrassed and ashamed. our industries are known for blatantly plagiarizing stuff from the west and other foreign artists. happens all the time. i am speechless. i apologize. if i ever met them, i wont be able to tell them, i am from India. :'-( it's a shame. i am sorry. when i heard, i was embarrassed but not surprised coz it happens so often. some people bringing the whole country's name down :'-(.

What's done is done. Either way, SM should seize the opportunity to strike a deal with that film company for their artists to promote in India.

Do you guys realize that the very first song is also plagiarized. Do you remember LC9 under Nega network? This is their song Mama Beat...
