If you hadn’t caught up with it yet – Bollywood is basically the Hindi version of Hollywood and it really doesn’t bother trying to cover up their lack of creative originality. Bollywood is filmed with remakes or blatant copies of famous Hollywood movies, but they just get that extra Bollywood sauce we all love to hate (or hate to love?)
Join me as we dive deep into the Bollywood remakes that are based on some classic Hollywood movies.
Sangharsh (1999) – The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
You’d think nobody would dare mimic Anthony Hopkins’ performance as Hannibal Lecter, but then you didn’t know about Bollywood. And you know what – it isn’t even a half bad movie. It’s got some good acting in it and it manages to keep up the suspense.
Kaante (2002) – Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Just imagine being an unknown Bollywood movie director and thinking you’ll just get started on that remake of one of the best Tarantino movies ever. What’s the worst that could happen? Luckily, this movie wasn’t a carbon copy and just took some heavy inspiration from Tarantino’s work. It would’ve probably tanked otherwise.
Partner (2007) – Hitch (2005)
I’m not sure if even the Hollywood version warranted being made, but at least in Bollywood they figured it was a proper film. And while Hitch did have some comedy – this was before Kevin James was bad – the Bollywood version manages to maintain most of the original’s charm.
