Copying is in trend nowadays and Bollywood is the proof of it. There are many movies that are either copied from Hollywood or Tollywood and we can’t ignore it. We are aware about the South Indian movies replicated by the Bollywood film producer, recent Durgamati is the proof.
There are many more but we focus on Hollywood movies that got a desi spin. You will be surprised to know about those movies, here’s the list.
7 Hollywood Movies That Inspired Bollywood
Can you guess it’s Bollywood version? Nope, it’s Kyun Ki Main Jhut Nhi Bolta and the movie was a complete copy. Since Govinda was playing the lead role, we are glad that filmmakers tried to remake the Liar Liar in its own version. It was really good, isn’t it.
She’s The Man
This one is easy and we all have grooved on one of the popular song from the movie. Any guesses?
It’s Rani Mukherjee and Shahid’s Dil Bole Hadippa where she dressed like a boy to pursue her passion. If you haven’t watched it’s hollywood original then must watch it, this 2007 film is equally good.
Now I Pronounce You Chuck And Larry
This is a real challenge especially if you don’t watch much movies so here’s the hint. The movie is about two guys who fall for the same girl but they both pretend themselves as gay couple.
Remember the name, it’s John and Abhishek’s Dostana. They were so good in the movie that we forget PeeCee was also in the lead role.
It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
The scene is so familiar, isn’t it. This Hollywood’s Bollywood version is just one word title with lot’s of crazy dialogues, hilarious comedy scenes and worth watching again and again.
It’s all-time favorite, Dhamal which is a remake of 1963 American comedy movie.
Dude, Where’s My Car?
This 2000 Hollywood film inspired Ashima Chibber to make a film starring Saqib Saleem. The story revolves around a car which Saqib aka Sameer lost after a night party.
Now the whole movie is all about searching that car as it was special gift of Sameer’s sister on her wedding. We have gave a lot of hint about the movie, right. It’s Mere Dad Ki Maruti that released in 2013.
We have thought Agneepath was an original story by Bollywood filmmakers but it’s the remake of 1983 Scarface. Both are great movies as the lead character was played by the star icons of 80s.
Jackie Chan has inspired everyone even filmmakers of Bollywood who copied his Twin Dragons and gave it title Judwaa. And even Judwa has remake starring Varun Dhawan. Both movies are great comedy and fun to watch.
The list doesn’t end here as still we have movies that took inspiration from Hollywood. And even Hollywood has often checked Indian cinema for some ideas.
Movies like Leap Year is Jab We Met inspired, Wednesday is copied as A Common Man, Vicky Donor and Delivery Man, and more are the proof.
Whether Bollywood copy Hollywood or vice versa, audiences are always in benefit. Of course, some movies are impossible to copy or replicate but ideas and inspirations are always welcome. And we cannot say that original is always better sometimes duplicate come out as a surprise.
