Bollywood (Indian) Movies That Copy Hollywood

Yup, apparently they need to copy posters too!
Yup, apparently they need to copy posters too!

Bollywood = Plagiarism knows no Bounds

Plagiarism is defined as the "wrongful appropriation," "close imitation," or "purloining and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions". Read more about it on Wikipedia.

For those of you unfamiliar with 'Bollywood', it is the Indian Film Industry. So basically, it serves to entertain the 2nd largest population in the world. Now that's a big responsibility and you'd think that they'd try to be original. But you'd be wrong. There's a fine line between getting inspired by the work of another person and plagiarizing it, sadly Bollywood seems unashamed in crossing that line repetitively.

Overtime I'll try to compile a complete list of all the plagiarized Bollywood movies in a hope to create awareness among people regarding this sad practice. Bollywood film makers seem to exploit the fact that many Indian viewers do not grasp the foreign accent properly and hence are not regular viewers of Hollywood. This creates an opportunity for dishonest Indian movie makers to imitate Hollywood movies without being criticized for doing so (instead they are appreciated for their efforts and these imitated films make good money at the box office).

Here Bollywood Copies a Swedish Movie:

Where do 'You' stand on the issue?

  • It is a really sad pratice, such plagiarism should be punished.
  • Indian viewers should demand originality and Bollywood would Oblige.
  • It doesn't matter to me whether the movie is an imitation, as long as it entertains me.
  • A few dishonest Bollywood movie makers are causing disgrace to the whole community
  • Indian Laws should ensure incarceration of such dishonest film makers
  • I feel cheated when I see a movie, like it, only to find out it is an imitation

Really sad imitation of one of the greatest movies of all times
Really sad imitation of one of the greatest movies of all times

1. The Godfather (1972) | Sarkar (2005)

The Godfather is the greatest movie there is. No doubt about it. 'Marlon Brando and Al Pacino', 'nuff said. The book 'Godfather' by Mario Puzo is a genius in itself. These are great works of arts and should've been left alone.

2. It happened one Night (1934) | Dil Hai ki Manta Nahi (1991)

A true scene-by-scene copy of Hollywood movie 'It happened one Night'. If you watch these two movies one after the other, you'll be amazed at how shamelessly the storyline and scenes have been imitated and the sad fact is that 'Dil Hai ki Manta nahi' was a huge hit in India.

Maybe 'Mahesh Bhatt' (the director) thought that he would get away with it because 'It happened one Night' is an old Hollywood classic (1934), so people wouldn't really notice. Well, he did get away with it, like in most of these cases.

3. Oldboy (2003) | Zinda (2006)

Apparently imitating Hollywood just wasn't enough, so out comes the indian film 'Zinda' which plagiarizes the story of 'Oldboy', a Korean movie about a guy who is kept in captivity for15 yearsand then given5 daysto figure out why he was kidnapped. In the Indian counter-part, the man is kept in captivity for14 yearsand given4 daysto figure out why he was kidnapped. That's about all the change they bothered to bring in 'Zinda'. It seems like'Sanjay Gupta'is mocking the Korean movie and is certain that such deceit would go unpunished. They probably thought that why bother thinking more than we have to, when the Indians are ready to accept the movie without much care about it being a rip off. Really sad.

Wikipedia states that "At a November 2005 press conference, Show East stated expressed concern that the film was similar to their film, Oldboy, and were investigating the similarities, noting that at the time, they did not have the final version of Zinda available to compare it with. They stated that if they did find there was "strong similarity between the two [films]", they would be contacting their lawyers." The Hindu reviewer Sudhish Kamath and Planet Bollywood reviewer Narbir Gosal both note in their reviews of Zinda that they found the two films to be very similar in terms of plot, as well as in the depiction of specific scenes".

But alas, no action was taken. It's like these fraudulent Indian film makers enjoy some impunity that we don't know about.

4. Bluestreak (1999) | Chor Machaaye Shor (2002)

Both of these movies have the same plot of a thief who steals a precious stone and hides it in a building before going to prison, when he comes out, it's a cop station. The Thief then poses as a cop to retrieve a diamond he stole years ago.

5. Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) | Chachi 420 (1997)

Again the same story for both of these movies, after a bitter divorce, an actor disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend secret time with his children held in custody by his Ex.

The list is of plagiarism is long, I'll keep updating as I have no doubt Bollywood would keep copying from Hollywood (If you know any copied Bollywood movie that I have missed, mention in a comment and I'll add it after verifying) but the fact remains that they won't stop unless the people demand originality in the media and boycott plagiarized stuff. Imitation causes nothing but disgrace to the country.

A ray of hope remains in the form of a few original Bollywood people who actually sit down to make something novel and fresh.

A Request: Send this around to as many as you can so that Indian viewers realize what's happening and maybe, just maybe, demand originality.

I suggest you watch the movie 'It happened one Night', you'll be sorry to notice that 'Dil hai ki manta nahi' is a complete copy of that hollywood film.

OR just take my word for it, I've seen both.

If they are going to make "remakes", they should pay for the right to do so. Remakes are not new, they're not illegal but they should go through all the steps just like anybody else. This would include, the permits, a percentage of the proceeds and of course the CREDITS!!!

In my opinion, Zinda is the worst remake i've ever seen. Oldboy has got a justified story line.. but Zinda stands way down to core!!!

@Karina Garcia: Remakes? These are no remakes. Remakes are when you go through the proper procedure, like you mentioned. This is plain stealing. And why would they bother 'paying a percentage' or giving 'credits' when they know they can get away with it without doing either.

Its a well known fact that when Bollywood plagiarizes, their work is really mediocre and sucks in comparison to the original. The question is what are we, as viewers, gonna do about it.

Anyone will take movies gettin inspired, and if you write a normal story in that somethin will be same from many stories you cant say all movies are copied, is that only holly wood gets those same ideas and no Indian gets same ideas or thinkin, if you think like that even bible is copy from bhagavathgitha ,they will search for Jesus to kill when born, same Krishna they will search to kill him, movies are taken after inspiration not copied

You can also add Baadshah to the list. It is a scene by scene copy of "If looks could kill" ( the first half of the movie where shahrukh is mistaken for a detective) and "nick of time" (second half of the movie where he has to kill the politician).

It's really sad that Barfi! is our entry for the Foreign Film Oscar.

The film contains several jokes and scenes lifted from Hollywood films, especially The Notebook: The mother taking the daughter to see the man she loved but chose not to marry, based on which the daughter makes her choice. Final scene being the two lying together on a hospital bed, and talk about living life with your true love and passing away together.

Also copied are Gone, Baby, Gone's girl not having actually died idea, COPS's ladder gag, Charlie Chaplin's Adventurer and City Lights 's sleeping on the statue and door gags, Singin' In The Rain's sofa dummy gag and nose twisting gags, Mr. Bean's painting gag, Mr. Nobody's car headlights turning out to be two bikes, Homealone's using mirror reflection to find who is at the door, Project A's bicycle scene, Japanese film Kikujiro and the Bollywood film Koshish (when Barfi is unable to hear his father's screams). The scene of Barfi reading a fat naked man's newspaper is taken from a Swedish Newspaper Advertisement.

Actually, they copy/remake English movies because most Indians in India/etc.. don't understand English, some don't even read Hindi. So what you are saying is that they have no right to watch a movie they want to see, and can finally understand? WTF is your problem??! I barely watch those English movies because i prefer Hindi, i think they do it a much better way. It's like you watching a movie that you don't understand, but want to watch it, and it didn't have any subs. So quit bitching and just live w/ the facts (what ever they are).

Why dnt u all go make a so called original movie if ur so keen.

@Bollywood : I can understand that some people do not understand the accent and do not like reading subs, but is that enough to justify such a shameful practice? It is intellectual property theft. And that's why all governments have laws against this. And don't get so aggressive over a list. It just shows that you have the maturity of a 12 year old. :)

Be proud of a copied movie gone to the oscars? Are you kidding me? There's a reason why Indian movie producers never need to think of anything original, it's coz people like you will always gulp down anything thrown at them in the name of entertainment. And you would never bother about whether it's original. And About us making an original movie is concerned, we all have a part to play in life. And we are playing our part by demanding originality.

wow...dint realise so many movies were copied..oh well.. but we cannot deny we actually enjoyed most of them, right? works of fiction stem from imagination...and imagination stems from experience and inspiration. some of the movies u listed up there CONCEPT copies, not STORYLINE copies. like, krissh, or koi mil gaya or NOT justifying their actions, it IS wrong to copy and not give credit...but some of these movies were real good, and the chances of indians ever watching or even HEARING abt those english ones are close to nil. dont be so hard on the industry :)

I watched Burfi for twice just to realize what good about it and believe me every time only one conclusion came out - it's crap movie; so boring compared to the original one(s) and Ranveer overacts as usual. Yeh, ppl who hardly watch a good movie and doesn't know the world outside Bollywood, may be for them it's a good movie! No wander we appreciate RD Burman (the greatest thief ever), Pritam (I'm trying to find if he has composed at least one single song originally), Anu Malik, etc etc. And whoever talking about oscar, they should know why all these bollywood movies get rejected at the final selection! And don't talk about the Indian jury and selection board. I'm sorry to say that they are not only dumb but shameless too!

Shame and fame when that goes together makes an imperfect mix. Copying, stealing and remaking without the knowledge of the original makers is a blatant plagiarism, and these maniacs have no shame at all. I have stopped watching bollywood- even feel ashamed of uttering this word, these creaky guys are labeling India and bollywood as "Chor". Did ayone remember Maine Pyar Kiya? Right from the beginning of this movie, even the first song is fully copied: ate jate, from steve wonders' I just call you to say I love you. and then the tune of Final countdown. Well, easy way out, just copy and paste who cares we Indians are used to faking.

Sam 3 years ago

I never had an idea that plagiarism is a serious offence until one of my pal told me about it. he is a professor, and said that in academic, it is a highly committed sin and the plagiarist when caught is not only ridiculed in the public, but posted as a fraud and that ends his/her job whatever he is at. Plagiarism is entirely not at all tolerated in research and academics, and they have stringent punishments. so why bollywood should be spared when there is so much of plagiarism? according to the definition, copying more than 2 sentences is plagiarism, and folks, we are here talking about whole song or scripts ripped off.

Visit this site and find what people all over the world are discussing about plagiarism:

Let me quote from this site what they say :

"suppose if someone steals a packet of pen and some else steals a bottle of costly wine in a supermarket, who would you let you away?"

@Bollywood…what do you have to say about Indians copying Pakistani songs? The same language barrier applies there too? Check out Kabhi Bekasi Ne Maara-kishor from Alag Alag and Pakistani song Kabhi Khahishon Nay Loota, Kabhi Bebasi Nay Mara from Mehrabani. I don’t see a language issue there…not only song; but, the situation is copied too…I don’t play Indian songs in front of Pakistanis as I am scared that they will point out that the song was copied from one of their songs…

@Pranshu even the name Bollywood is Hollywood with the first letter swapped. Why can't the Indian film industry be true to itself and make films based on Indian history, culture and lifestyle (Dev Das for example) instead of acting like lazy unashamed copycats. What makes it worse is that they arrogantly make out its their own work and ideas!! I know some boys from India and they were offended when I pointed many films were copies! I hear some in Bollywood are looking for a new name for the ir film industry - Copywood might be appropriate!!

@daz : You are right. Typical Indian people get highly offended when you point out to them that the movies they love are actually shameless copies of someone elses work. The first step to correcting a problem is to admit that there is a problem, but I don't know when we would be brave enough to accept that Bollywood copies Hollywood.

@Fora : I m big supporter of Originality and always will be. These producers or directors are earning millions of dollars by Intellectual Property theft and getting away with it. I major in Information Security and Cyber Law and in Law there are provisions of heavy penalty and prison sentences for such practices. Yet how are these people getting away with such a crime. Being from Texas, US, i don't know if you realize what it is to be poor in India, and while a labor here barely gets something to eat to keep himself and his little kids alive, these rich producers and bollywood industry is getting richer by fooling people and scamming them for their hard-earned money, when they plainly copy stuff.

Try to understand that I gain absolutely nothing from this blog or page or any of my pages, I am doing this purely to raise some awareness and urging bollywood to try to create something original and something relating to their own culture and values, instead of making pathetic attempts at copying.

I can't understand what made you say that I am scamming people for money by this page. Read it again and maybe you'll see that I gain nothing by this and I m just tiny part of the 2nd largest population in the world, who demands originality

Fora 3 years ago

Understand your point I do. I come from India new Delhi. The conditions I see on zee news on tv where there is poverty. People are on the streets with no food, home, and electricity. I watch Indian serials and see how little kids are forced to work and get nothing but cuss words and slaps from their parents cause of one little mistake they've made. I can't see child abuse in India though it's exact reason why I moved to America. My mom could barely earn there. Goons were out on the streets late at night frightening people including my mom. Money was an issue my mom earned 30 rupees at toll rail station. Fathers are so mean that they abuse women. It's outrageous they think they can treat women like a servant and make her do the dirty work. Worst of all they beat them up. I cant see that happening at all neither anyone goes against head of house.If bollywood movies keep making money for plagiaristic thoughts it's because of money, power, fame, entertainment, and lack of ideas. I believe what you say. what made me believe. Iam high school student at Texas.

Hey Pranshu go fight for what is right. I have not been in India for long time. I forgot how to write Hindi, but I can translate what others say in Urdu and speak it at home as well. Sorry, for doubting you. I judge too quickly people, instead I should rather know more about him. A famous quote we all hear "never judge a book by it's cover". In Texas teachers are not big on plagiarism issue. I see students copying and pasting questions on assignments given in classs onto Microsoft word. I don't do that because I can't afford to let my grade fall down completing sophomore year is required. The teachers are nice students are bad in America. I will further explain at my school there are lots of people from different school has predujice against weird or abnormal students who first don't know how to speak English or write English. Second have a girlfriend which means fights occur often between two men fighting for girls love and respect.Third who are very slow at studying or completing a given assignment on time . I take my time to complete my assignments as well as research my topic thoughrly.

The main reason why students in America copy and paste without given proper citation or providing source is because they are out of time or can't think where to start from. I myself have put up to listening these comments from students at my school on classwork assignments like "hurry it up. The teacher isn't going to know or care whether you plagiarized on an assignment. I never wanted to let myself down nor my members so I talked to teacher she didn't care."

Iam writing this to describe culture of America to you. Care to share what's it like in India I would like to know. To tell you the truth American girls are really mean at high school . Take drugs and drink at early age without liscense.

Well really it's a shame on Bollywood!

But I disagree with few names you've given in the list. for example, Rangeela: a copy of Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. What? Rangeela was out in 1996 and WADWTH was out in 2004. How the hell can it be a copy?? Rangeela was an original. Similarly, Pyar tune kya kiya was definitely not a copy of Fatal Attraction. Have you seen both the films?? Fatal attraction was about sex and infidelity. PTKK was far more emotional. Only the obsession part was similar but obsession is a theme of so may other films-Bollywood or Hollywood.

My point is you should research well before posting something. I think Ram Gopal Verma is one of the most original filmmakers. Although he made Sarkar based on Godfather. But Godfather was one film which inspired him to become a filmmaker. That's something personal he felt. Plagiarism should not be blamed on a man who made a classic like Satya.

I don't believe it matters to pranshu. Pranshu believes that whoever is responsible for making fake bollywood films should get punished in dollars.American films are a copy of British films.

@Shubhra : I will do further research on the films you listed and then get back to you. I assure you that I have no intention of naming any movies in this list when they're not a copy. But the list is huge and many films to watch, so it's hard to be completely accurate. :)

As far as Godfather is concerned, if he was "inspired" by it, then did RGV take official permission from producers of Godfather series? or mention 'Mario Puzo' anywhere in the film. If not, then I consider it plagiarism. There's a thin line between "copy" and "inspiration" and Indian film makers frequently cross it.

@Fora : Hi, I would like to know more about what it's like being an Indian in Texas. You can reach me at

Hope to hear from you. :)

Fora 3 years ago

It's great being an Indian in Texas. Here at Texas there are celebrations of Indian festivals, cultural dances, lots of Indian restaurants that serve imported food like my favorite gulab jamun, taandoori chicken, naan, butter chicken, chole buttore,and all you can eat buffet for $5. People near my neighborhood who are born in Texas or come from different countries greet me in namaste. They are learning how to speak Urdu and some learn it fast.

In Texas crimes are less because police patrol the streets all day and time. The result make it safe for citizens to walk from morning to evening. People bring their dogs to walk with them because dogs is a man best friend and loyal companion.

Bicycling on sidewalks is become common around euless as students who attend my high school use bicycles as transportable means to get to school on time. Also There are local buses that students from grapevine colleyville and euless that provide free transportation to students. The bus drivers are nice and teach the student passengers the safety rules of riding a bus. Students disobey bus drivers for no reason , throw trash and cuss other students because of their reserved nature. They don't like quiet people, but I do because I can sit at ease and listen to my music. Bus drivers give consequences for disobeying their orders. First consequence if any student cusses anyone within the bus or throws trash he or she has to sit in the front row and clean the bus. It's common. Second consequence if the student threatens anyone in bus or actually hits any student and involves the student in fight the bus driver calls their parents vice principle and principal and expels them from school and never allows them to ride bus again. It has happened in past lots of property was damaged inside the bus, some had theirs stolen without notice. Students even leave stuff inside unattended, later realizing their clumsy nature. Some students are are nice by allowing me to sit with them at a seat, some say "Sorry, this seat is reserved,you stink, or get lost".

Students who are born here or America hate math. Math teachers make so much sense while teaching basic math problems. I enjoy working with math problems as for my self.

More about school culture. Students skip school without informing teacher or other students. They drop out of high school because they make bad grades due to lack of attendance, some can't make good grades abecause they can't understand the material, and some go through their way of cheating by asking for answers to questions or stealing papers from teachers, taking pictures of tests and quizzes. About 65% student body cheats at school. I myself don't because it's not fair game at school . I believe hard work, responsibility,and maintaining good relationships with students and faculty body is key to high school success.

Hollywood is careless about copyright issues. I bet Hollywood copied films from England. Americans themselves copy england films. Look it up on google. America calls England their mother country. It's called cultural borrowing learned that from geography class. It's become prevalent to even celebrate Christmas in India. Why not ban the celebrations of holidays for all races. Am I right or wrong? Why should we even celebrate someone else religious holiday and eat their food. I think Sonia and everyone else should see the perspective to applying traditional events of another culture. Why should freedom of religion be allowed at America? Why should we speak English here if we are all from india or born from Indian parents who bring us into this world? Why should we criticize idiots? Why does use of money run our lives? Why should we earn money? : note this does not apply to pranshu or anyone else here. Pranshu I agree with you, but we have to think outside the box here. Look society and morality of principles have become corrupt for ages since our ancestors were born from an early descent. India and Pakistan have issues in their govt. Living in America my family doesn't support freedom of speech- meaning I can't talk to other people who are not from same ethnicity as I am. Freedom of religion- no I break my traditions from sense part of Indian community. Freedom to assemble it's possible but consequential to strike. Freedom of press well I can write freely online here. Lastly freedom of petition I can't voice against high authority which is American govt. People in America hate their govt. Why is because govt doesn't work alongside it's citizens. I hope readers on this blog understand my point. We are all hopeless. How can we change society?voice and shout . Words don't mean anything in opposition. Do something against govt or destroy the culprits meaning put an end to plagiarism. What's say people?

Sonia 3 years ago

I completely agree with @fora about disliking the govt but when I read what you wrote fora its almost as your no free speech is dictating your beliefs. This blog has nothing to do with politics of other countries. Honestly I think what Bollywood does is shady. And I back Hollywood for at least crediting it remakes. I saw mark walhberg on a talk show and he said that contraband was a remake of an icelandic film and he bought the rights. Credit on screen and profit are negotiated in the deals. I feel like in the general Pakistani/Indian population there is ignorance (I'm not saying it is limited to these two ethnic groups). If they see someone pointing out a fault they immediately divert the attention to others. Bollywood make FANTASTIC cultural films (i.e. Jodhaa Akbar, kkkg,ddlj) there about tradition. And in Indian producers attempts to modernize they loose the best part and it just looks tacky. I don't wanna see two Indians in a heated love scene. Why? Because I think Indians actually had better morals. Its not that americans don't have morals, it's that it looks natural and common. But I completely disagree in the whole cultural borrowing/bad at copyrights issue. The departed, the eye, dragon tattoo are all credited/or a statement was released about it being a remake. It's a fact. You cant prove any of this with Indian cinema. I think @fora you may have point but it's about politics/culture. It's the wrong blog and subject.

It is so sad that these stupid directors and producers are doing something like this. But the thing is, only those mad, money virused ones are doing that. There are still thoose that actually want to create something new and interesting: like Taare Zameen Par, Slumdog Millionaire, 3 Idiots, and Laagan. These movies had unique plot lines and I really loved them. The actors have great potential in my opinion. Its up to the directors and producers to make a plot and movie that can bring out the star potential in their actors. GOODNESS BOLLYWOOD Stop it!!

Even worse, is that some of the music is also stolen too, For example, a lot from the movie Jab We Met, 3 songs are tunes that previously existed and have been uncredited!!

I have seen 90% of movies and their Indian counterpart & I totally agree with the author that Bollywood is high on plagiarism.

Akshay 3 years ago

About 10-20% of this list is wrong... plus, there are a few Bollywood directors who are the culprits. Saying "Bollywood rips off other films" as a whole is wrong because the majority of good directors (Anurag Kashyap, Ramgopal Varma, Vishal Bhardwaj, Mira Nair) will either 1) make original movies or 2) properly buy the rights and then clearly acknowledge in the credits that the film is a remake. By the way, that's the case with Sarkar - it is an official tribute to The Godfather, and RGV properly gave credit in the opening credits.

Akshay 3 years ago

1) Sarkar is not a rip-off, but a credited adaptation of The Godfather with a political angle and character differences. Even The Godfather is taken from a book, but you don't called that "ripped off".

2) Agneepath is NOT A REMAKE OF SCARFACE. You really need to watch both films again. So both of them have a guy who rises through the underworld. Literally everything else is different, including all the other characters and motivations. Again, even the Scarface you gave is a remake of a 1932 film.

3) Rangeela was made in 1995. Win a date with Tad Hamilton was made in 2004. So this is just you lying.

4) Munnabhai MBBS and Patch Adams are two totally different movies. The only similarity is that they follow a guy trying to get through med school, literally everything else is different (characters, plot line, etc.) Only the endings are slightly similar. And besides, MBBS was a much better movie than patch Adams.

5) Jo Jita Hai Wohi Sikandar: Says it right in the credits; "This film is an adaptation of Breaking Away (1979), by Peter Yates. It also contains many original scenes. So not a straight-up copy

5) Rang de Basanti is much different from JDM. The camerawork, plot points, and characterization. RDB is a freedom struggle. The only similarity is that the people they envision start to influence their lives, something seen in multiple movies. Plus, RDB was based on a 1991 film script called 'Ahuti' (look it up) dealing with the Indian independence struggle.

6) Koi Mil Gaya: Common misconception. KMG is actually based on The Alien, a never-released 1967 film whose script was written by Satyajit Ray. In fact, E.T. was inspired by this same script, since the same company contracted to produce The Alien later made E.T., using Satyajit Ray's old script.

I can keep going, but I won't. Most of this list is correct, though. I was especially sad when I saw Kaante, as it was a scene-for-scene copy of one of my favorite Tarantino films. But don't lay false accusations. And you should only be criticizing remakes where the original authors weren't given credit - otherwise, you could criticize half of Hollywood's movies as well.

Comrade 3 years ago

Quite a comprehensive list! I’d like to add a few of my observations as well. Sholay (1975), arguably the biggest Bollywood blockbuster, was in many ways influenced by contemporary Westerns. The soundtrack was influenced by the soundtrack of The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly (1966). The Thakur family killing scene was a ‘remake’ of a similar scene from Once Upon A Time In The West (1968). Talking about ersatz films how could one forget Sadak (1995). It started as Lethal Weapon (1987) and ended as Cyborg (1989). I’ll keep posting my comments as well if I remember something else worth-mentioning here. Be well!

That's a big list and while some of which may be true, others are not completely so. For instance, Krrish is not a copy of Paycheck. Krrish was a superhero movie which was more in the spirit of movies like Superman (for his powers) and The Matrix (for the look). The part you're referring to is probably the supercomputer which is capable of predicting the future - its design was just like the one in Paycheck but that's probably about it. That doesn't make it a copy of Paycheck - its more like a plot point is taken from Paycheck.

This is not to say that I'm supporting Bollywood by any means. The truth is, even I as a child was enamored by these movies and thought some of them to be quite brilliant. That is until I truly exposed myself to Hollywood movies some 4 years ago (yeah I know its pathetically late). And 4 years later, I haven't bothered to look back. My family still craves and is excited about Bollywood movies but for me, Hollywood is all that matters. There are only a couple of movies in Bollywood that I care about in a year and that's it.

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that a lot of people in India do not consider Bollywood as a proper industry and in their quest to attain a "stable and secure life" opt for Engineering and MBA courses instead of actually jumping into films and changing the scenario themselves. I'm sure there are a lot of budding filmmakers trapped out there under so-called family pressures who, if given the chance, could actually churn out original stuff. I seriously hope the situation improves and originality increases.

This is really an endless debate. To thus cut a long story short, Bollywood is indeed wrong in plagiarizing or to put it appropriately, copying without crediting. And frame-by-frame copying is simply horrible. In my opinion, there is no dearth of original stories and Bollywood ought to exploit those opportunities. After all, all it takes to spawn original ideas is simply a peaceful walk in the park.

'Dil Aashna Hai', starring ShahRukh Khan and Kabir Bedi, produced by Hema Malini was a copy of 1983-84 Tele-film 'Lace'Lace is an American television two-part miniseries, based on the novel of the same name by author Shirley Conran. The series aired on ABC from February 26–27, 1984. The plot concerns the search by sex symbol Lili (Phoebe Cates) for her natural mother, who surrendered her for adoption as a newborn. Lace was one of the highest rated television movies of the 1983-84 television season.

The miniseries is infamous for the line "Which one of you bitches is my mother?" spoken by Lili, when she finally assembles the three potential candidates: Pagan Trelawney (Brooke Adams), Judy Hale (Bess Armstrong) and Maxine Pascal (Arielle Dombasle)

people must realize there are some decent movies but most are copied from hollywood if you are remaking a famous movie from hollywood or any other foreign country bollywood filmakers must acknowledge the work of the original filmmakers and buy the proper rights of the movie

Karthik about the word copying, we know our parents copied our names from people who exist. Anyone challenge me? I can agree with Karthik. Jab We Met was decent film except the cussing. Bodyguard was a decent film except the violent content. some bollywood producers don't desire their films to fail because of competition. I honestly believe these films contains something that templates us to watch them and then criticize them in a positive or negative way. I can't say that I hate a film or like a film. If there was no ingrain cinema would there be even an Indian community we call pride. Those who hate Indian films might not hate them as they hate Amitabh Bahchan. My favorite actor is Fardeen Khan we don't see him in films, but I like the strong personality and his charismatic acting qualities. I like two actors Fardeen Khan and Shahid Kapoor. Fida was a thriller film that had awesome action packed scenes. I still remember kareena and shahid Jodi. I sure miss them on screen. Yes, Salman and Sharukh are reunited as friends. Relationships are meant to survive and we as humans reunite from past mistakes like I watched Hindi serials I can tell Indian society is generally facing problems. We always don't get a clear answer to everything, but as they say time heals all wounds and we are still immature according to ?????.

Plagiarism in Bollywood has reached a point that if any good Bollywood movie hits the screens, we need to wonder which Foreign movie they ripped it off from. These idiots have absolutely no originality. The main reason for this is NOT the ignorance of Indian audience. Indian moviegoers know very well about Hollywood and other Foreign movies. They just don't care. That's how these creativity-deprived idiots get away with plagiarism.

You must have definitely come across clowns defending plagiarism. I don't have any problem if the filmmakers get the remake rights and give due credit to the original makers. But the fact that they blatantly steal and laugh their way to the bank outrages me.

These are the same people who condemn pirated CDs and DVDs of their respective movies. And these are the same people who will make such a fuss and file lawsuits against somebody if he/she used their work without permission. Look at the irony.. the hypocrisy.

To think that most of the Indian audience is defending such thieves is sad. No wonder these filmmakers get away with it.

Seeing how things are going at present, I don't think this situation will change for the better any time in the near future. Unless Indian moviegoers stop supporting this and demand good movies from their film makers, nothing will change.

Viz 2 years ago

I didn't have the patience to read through your entire post. Chances are that I'm aware of most of them.

But let me point out that Dhoom is not a copy of of either Fast and Furious or Ocean's Eleven.

Other than the similarities like the concept of racing in both Dhoom and Fast and Furious, there's no similarity. About Ocean's Eleven, it's an entertaining movie about a casino theft. Although Dhoom does have a casino theft at the end, the two movies aren't similar.

Btw, it's not just Bollywood that copies. Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu filmmakers too copy shamelessly from Foreign movies.

Aditya 2 years ago

Bollywood should be punished or what they do. Just adding songs in the movies doesn't make a new movie. Also, Bollywood needs to understand the difference between inspiration and stealing. This is just the list of movies, they have also stolen songs, scenes, action, directing style/acting style as well. They continue steal these things not just from Hollywood but also from various industries around the world.

Nice work!

Now we are in internet era - Copying in one way leading to recognize the original , depends on person mind set. Its sometimes happen even we know the script /scenes but want to see it again the treatment given by another person.

Just in case of Agatha Christies - Ten Little Indians or And There were None .

There are four Hollywood movies in different years(1945 , 1965 ,1974 ,1989 ) - in Bollywood Gumnaam(1965) - i watched all the movies and i enjoyed all the five movies. And in future if any movie will come on same script .... it would be interesting.

For instance 'Ek ruka hua Faisla'(1986) bring more recognition for Sydney Lumet in India ( remake of his debut movie '12 angry men'1957) then his other Hollywood movies.

i don't watch movies often, but they all brainwash people everyone knows that. Hollywood doesn't need to appreciate positive remarks of their films, especially when payment is life's will to earn. Obviously the people on this site waste their time by persuading the inevitable corrupt script jargon and the fact is to their hidden ultimate belief that they hate their lives as much as film making industry to capture audience attention to copyrighting. We are all bad people and anyone can admit that as hidden truth because minds are the key victims to produce information as a way to process its own greed. Pranshu is the one who makes the evidence appear to be real, but globalization of religion and mass media outrules the useless rules for others who oppose his views. Thats the way life works.

Soccer copied from American football or the reverse (please get your history right).

Soccer in one form or other was played from BC period. Framing of a national or international rules means the origin of game!!!!

What's exactly wrong with you?

Check the popularity of the two games and decide which should be gone (in case there is place for only one, and that will be a strange condition in any field)

A basic economics would bring out the fallacy of " No one likes FIFA viewers who make money just to watch a sport and leave people poor on streets."

These gala events do not leave the people poor on street. Usually, if spent without corruption, these channelise the money to them. The important word, as usual is the corruption.

Some of the movies are indeed blatant copy and the owner should have got compensated to make it a legal Remake.

But many movies enlisted here cant be called as a blatant copy.

You can not just generalize everything just because it has done earlier by Hollywood so no one else cant even think that concept its protected.

Is there any such patent/copyright thing in film world where one can protect some story even if it reflects daily life?
