Ever since the first look of Allu Arjun's DJ was unveiled, people have started comparing the film with several other films. Most of them have found similarities of the film with Jr NTR's Adhurs because of the Brahmin characterisation but on the other side, there are few more who have said that the film is a fresh script written by Harish Shankar.
Now that the theatrical trailer of the film is also out, the latest discussion in the filmnagar about the film is that the movie is a mixture of 'Adhurs' and 'Ramayya Vastavayya' and they have been revealing their theories for the film. On the other side, an interesting rumour is that the film is a rip off from the Kannada film Shivam starring Upendra in the lead. The movie has been dubbed into Telugu as 'Brahmana'.
Apparently, the film Brahmana also shows a Brahmin who is calm and polite in the beginning and comes up with violence towards the end. But none from the film unit has responded on this yet.
