Internet user with the account user name Mechanic619, on a social media forum of defence.pk pointed out that the movie is inspired by the Spanish series, Money Heist that is evident through the trailers of the film. The user commented that: “Not Ocean series, Its a copy of Money Heist, Every character in money heist was named after a famous city from all over the world, and in the trailer, everyone is holding signs with names of Cities of Pakistan, So it looks like a combination of Ocean series and Money heist.”
The troll came up with interesting replies on social media. One user even suggested changes in the cast of the film. “If Aamir liaquat does not play the role of Arturo in Pakistani money heist #50crore i’am not gonna watch it,” wrote one Twitter user.
I'd watch Pakistani money heist if it had Zardari and Nawaz Sharif as the main casts members

I dont get why there's so much hate for 50 crore, atleast theyre making something out of the saas bahu shadi talaaq genre, who cares if its a copy?

The criticism on the pakistani money heist knock off is a bit unfair.
You start from somewhere, even if it means creating cheap knockoffs. If that is what it takes to move on from the typical toxic saas bahu malarkey, I'm all for it.
