Eden Lake is written and directed by James Watkins and stars Kelly Reilly, Michael Fassbender and Jack O’Connell.
The film is all about a nursery school teacher, Jenny (Kelly Reilly), and her boyfriend, Steve (Michael Fassbender), escape their everyday life to an idyllic remote lake in the green English countryside. Along the way, they meet Adam (James Gandhi), a young boy who is reluctant to talk with them. Attempting to relax near a beach, their trip is disrupted by the presence of delinquent teenagers.
Well our so called original NH10 is also on similar lines. We have the actress turning producer Anushka Sharma essaying the role of a teacher. Oops!!
Meera (Anushka Sharma) and Arjun (Neil Bhoopalam) are teachers living in Gurgaon. When Meera walks out of a party late one night, she gets attacked by a group of unknown men. Although she escapes through the skin of her teeth, it leaves her traumatised. Arjun, partly blaming himself for not being there that night, tries to make up for it by treating her to a luxurious desert holiday.
As they stop on a Highway restaurant for dinner, they witness a young girl being picked up by a bunch of hoodlums. Arjun chooses to step in, unmindful of the danger ahead.
If you see the trailer below then one is shocked to see the similarities between the two films. The only difference between the two is, Eden Lake has an element of horror in it while NH10 is more blood and gore.
It’s so ironical and sad to see this happen time and again. We never give our writers the due credit, nor do we give them the monies to come up with an original plot; all we do is get a good dvd and adapt it. Sad but true.
NH10 is set to hit the silver screens on March 06, 2015

Wow!! on one side we have Anushka Sharma talking about how lovely the script of NH10 is and on the other she has conveniently forgotten to state that ...1.0
