Bollywood (Indian) Movies That Copy Hollywood

Updated on April 19, 2016
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?

See results
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.

      Plagirism takes place in Texas. No doubt schools in HEB have cheated to get through life it's a shame what a world we live in. I don't call it making it a better place if that's what people's minds are manipulating the new technology and the fanciers of luxury is all fake learn to live in a cracked house with not many facilities and fail to understand relationships at its fakeness and call it a good day I think not because the anger with god is hot.

      We guys are here to stop plagiarism something we find in films that copy concepts in plot or dramatic scene. Society has become brainwashed. People are likely to turn out to be abnormal. So for those who don't see what's this blog of resentment with practices as false claims by media to report under influence it's down right plagiarism. I agree with Pranshu. Some may not look back to what the movie Xpose 2014 a copy of Great Gatsby may offer, but because movies influence the way we all behave we need to shut down the internet for good.

      friend. you are right. I am amazed how many movies they copied and how manny more they'll gonna be? And most often these copied movies are like a hotchpotch with bollywood tadka and crazy-like acting. It's like murder of the original movie. It feels like shame. Here to add some nice items in your list.

      Parichay - The Sound of Music

      Chori Chori (old) - It Happened One Night

      Naseeb - City Lights

      Chandramukhi - Big

      Kunwara - Love Me Tonight

      Dhoom 3 - Prestige

      and there's lot more but I can't remember right now. Can't they show some originaly here by their own and stop ashaming themselves and us too?

      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?

      I believe what Pranshu is doing is right.

      He has a legitimate reason why films are plagirised and how this practice changed indian filmaking. Accept your mistakes and learn from the wise.

      Anyone who is fed up of me just didnt know whats better for themselves so i suggest they leave for they are camels who eat roaches from toilets so they can spill the nonsense from their ?????.

      I suggest supporters pay no fine. The unsupported need to research Bollywood films and complain to Hollywood.

      No wonder I am so dumb with learning new thinks. I am a sprout just like my friends think of me. To grow tall I got to eat meat. The president of Russia is @TheFakeShiv.

      I suck at watching movies and playing sports. I don't even know how to write in any language. I rely on idiots or friends to help me. I need a life so filmmaking and my good looks will work for a charm with my cars. To the rest get lost Braydo, Zachary, Sameet, and others. I don't need anyone in life to rely on.

      Mind your own business about film industries copying films from one to another. If you do than you'll be successful. That applies to everyone on this page that criticizes Bollywood.

      ABCD 2 2015 is a remake of every dance film copied from America.

      I would like to say the fact that koi mil gaya(KMG)cannot be claimed totally as a copy because it was adapted from the story "the alien" by satyajit ray and the director of KMG himself acknowledged this fact.In fact ET was copied from the alien but steven spielberg has always given weird excuses. There are tons of articles floating in the net supporting the fact.Otherwise a very good list.

      Indians are the most untalented nation on the face of this earth. Never have an original idea in technology, movies or art. NEVER!

      Ms/Mr Jia,

      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.

      Since my birth, till now (40 yrs) indian movies are the same boy girl crap. All the intelligent movies are copies. Bollywood is shit....its only about money and item songs for dubai dance bars. Shit indians also want to watch bullshit for entertainment.
