But the truth is there are many unknown faces too, people who are too careful to avoid popular movies and lift from the unpopular ones. Let us find out some of them.

Our main resource can be IMDB. Using search feature in IMDB, you can find out details of almost all hollywood movies. Some Indian movies are also listed but most of them are incomplete. Using IMDB search you can even search the story of hollywood movies. Therefore if you have any doubt on a malayalam film, using IMDB search, input some of the key terms involved in the story and search. If you are lucky, you will find the right one.

Over the last few years, I have used IMDB effectively and located many malayalam movies which have resemblance to hollywood movies. I shall post my findings here. But you should also join. If you know any hollywood, bollywood movie, book, drama etc which might have an influence on a particular malayalam movie, please reply to this thread. Let's catch the copy cats.

Some member names are from the "other" forum. I am not sure if I should remove them. After all credit should be given wherever it is due.
