Life of Pi’s lullaby in a plagiarism row
Lyricist Bombay Jayashri’s joy of her song in filmmaker Ang Lee’s Life of Pi, grabbing an Oscar nomination, might be short-lived.
The song, Pi’s Lullaby is caught in a plagiarism row for being similar to the Malayalam lullaby, Omanathinkal kidavo, composed by Malayalam poet Iryimman Thampi in the 18th century, reports a tabloid.
Thampi’s relatives allege that the Pi’s Lullaby is a rip off.
