From Baazigar to Kaante, here is the list of the most amazing Hollywood remakes in Bollywood. Which of these is your most favourite?
Bollywood movies are often copied from foreign films and our filmmakers try to hide the fact that their movies are indeed adapted or inspired. But sometimes it is almost impossible to hide this fact. We present the list of 7 most amazing Hollywood remakes in Bollywood-
Murder is remembered as Mallika Sherawat’s debut film and as one of the most erotic movies ever made in Bollywood. While the movie received a lot of love thanks to the story as well as the leads, very few people know that the movie was actually the remake of Hollywood film Unfaithful.
2. Hum Tum
Rani Mukherji and Saif Ali Khan’s Hum Tum is one of our all-time favourite romantic comedies and will always be on the list. The movie has all the right ingredients, from good acting, good story and good music. The movie’s story is quite similar to that of When Harry Met Sally and it is considered to be the unofficial remake of the movie.
Sanjay Gupta’s Kaante is one of the most amazing films directed by him so far. Even though the movie did not receive much appreciation when it released on the big screens, the movie, later on, became of the most loved action thrillers. It is quite a known fact that the movie is adapted from Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.
Sarkar is undoubtedly one of the best movies made by Ram Gopal Varma. Amitabh Bachchan gave the performance of a lifetime in the movie and his role is said to be inspired by Bal Thackeray’s character. But the story is heavily based on that of ‘The Godfather‘.
Shah Rukh Khan’s first shot to fame was Baazigar and the movie also marked the debut of Shilpa Shetty. The movie is considered one of the best films of Shah Rukh Khan’s career and this movie is based to an extent on the Hollywood film A Kiss Before Dying.
6. Satte Pe Satta
Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini’s Satte Pe Satta is heavily inspired by the Hollywood movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. The only major difference between the two movies was the addition of Amjad Khan’s character.
Kangana Ranaut established herself as the queen of Bollywood in terms of acting prowess with the movie Queen. Little did we know that the story is inspired from the movie ‘The Art of Travel’ except for the fact that in the original movie, it was a man who runs away and goes on to travel around the world.
