In the past couple of decades, we have noticed that Bollywood movies are very much having the same plot as Hollywood and regional movies. Here is the list of some movies which were released in Hollywood and later its remake was made by Bollywood:
Dil Bole Hadippa (2009) – She’s the Man
Dil Bole Hadippa and She’s the Man have the same plot. They both are romantic sports comedy movies. The only difference between the two movies is the sports. She’s The Man revolves around football whereas Dil Bole Hadippa revolves around cricket. This was done in order to create uniqueness in the movie but everything else remains the same in the movie such as comedy, drama and romance. Even though Dil Bole Hadippa was a remake, it was a hit because of its cast.
Chachi 420 – Mrs Doubtfire
Chachi 420 is still one of the most loved movies in bollywood but little did the audience know that it was also a remake of Mrs Doubtfire. Chachi 420 was played by Kamal Hassan who justified the indian version of Mrs Doubtfire. It was a superhit comedy movie though Mrs Doughtfire had a separate fan base. Those were the days when watching regional movies was not easy as it is in the 21st century.
We are Family (2010) – Stepmom
“We are family” was the first remake that took official permission from the makers of “Stepmom”. Dharma production released this movie with a star cast of Kareena Kapoor Khan, Arjun Rampal and Kajol. The movie didn’t do well however it managed to overcome the budget that was invested to make the movie.
Players (2011) – The Italian Job
Players was one of the hit movies of bollywood but the truth is it’s also a remake of hollywood movie The Italian Job. It took a huge amount to buy official rights to remake the movie. Players starred many stars such as Abhisekh Bachhan, Bobby Deol, Niel Nitin Mukesh, Bipasha Basu etc. but still could not earn as compared to the level of “The Italian Job”.
Bang Bang (2014) – Knight and Day
Bang Bang starring Hritik Roshan and Katrina Kaif was a remake of Knight and Day. Hrithik did justice to the role and as a result the movie turned around to be a huge blockbuster earning more than 250 crores. However, it did not beat the collection of original and popular movie i.e. Knight and Day. The makers are also planning a sequel to the movie as Bang Bang: Reloaded.
Dil Bechara (2020) – Fault in Our Stars
Dil Bechara was the last movie of Late Sushant Singh Rajput. Even though the audience had seen Fault in our stars,they had an emotional connection with the movie due to the recent demise of Sushant singh Rajput. It was released on OTT during the time of Pandemic, no doubt the movie was a hit.
The Girl on the Train (2021)
The Girl on the train is a remake of the hollywood movie with the same name. The movie stars Parineeti Chopra and the movie is all set to release on 26 Feb 2021. The official rights to remake has been issued to the film. We will be waiting to compare both of these movies.
The Intern (2021) – The Intern (2015)
The Intern was released in 2015 in Hollywood. Its Bollywood remake was announced which starred Deepika Padukone and Late Rishi Kapoor. Since the veteran actor Rishi Kapoor is no more, their replacement is being looked for. The movie is said to be released in mid of 2021.
These were some movies whose remake was made by bollywood though these are just few of the hits, there plenty more hollywood movies that have the same plot as bollywood movies. You can watch yourself and decide if the remake was worthy or not. Also, the difference between both hollywood and bollywood version of movie.
