Teri Meri Kahaani: Rip off or Inspired?

When we go for movies, the first thing we are made to see is that 'This film is pure work of fiction & any similarities is purely coincidental'. Well I agree to statement BUT is Bollywood sticking up to it or is it just a mandatory statement & does not hold a meaning. 

The point is, Director Kunal Kohli's 'Teri Meri Kahaani' starring Shahid Kapoor & Priyanka Chopra has already found troubled waters. The film looks a lot like Taiwanese film 'Three Times'. 'Teri Meri Kahaani' story revolves around two lovers who keep meeting in three timelines 1910, 1960 & 2012 more like re-carnation story & just like Three Times which is also based on three timelines 1911, 1966 and 2005. 
Taiwanese film 'Three Times' released in 2005 & had been nominated for Cannes Film Festival.

To all of which Kunal Kohli has no clue about the film 'Three Times' & he comments that 'any similarities is pure co-incidental'.

Anyways I will give you both the trailers & let you be judge of 'is it inspired? or rip off? or co-incidental? like Kohli says.
