1. Munna Bhai MBBS - Patch Adams
The Sanjay Dutt starrer made a permanent place in our hearts. It showed us that even goons have a conscience and the “Jadoo ki Jhappi” still warms our saddened hearts. Surprisingly, this blockbuster does not have an original script, and was inspired by Robin William’s 1989 film Patch Adams.
2. Judwaa - Twin Dragons
This movie consisted of everything required for a Bollywood blockbuster- a cast of
in a double role;
as its director, and a plot inspired from a Hollywood Movie “The Twin Dragons.”
3. Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha – French Kiss
This romantic comedy starring the Bollywood power-couple, Kajol and Ajay Devgn was an adaptation of the 1995 Hollywood film, the French kiss. The plot of the two movies was more or less the same, but that did not stop us from laughing until our stomachs hurt.
4. Mere Yaar ki Shaadi hai- My Best Friend’s Wedding
Probably the only movie we remember
for, Mere Yaar ki Shaadi Hai did not only get its movie plot, but also literally translated the title from the 1997
starrer “My Best Friend’s Wedding.
5. Brothers- Warrior
While we all wish to believe
when he said Brothers was way better than its Hollywood counterpart, we all know that the movie was a melodramatic remake of the 2011 Hollywood film Warrior. Unfortunately, it did not do as well at the
, as the English version.
6. Satte pe Satta- Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Just like some other Hollywood rip-offs, one of Big B’s most memorable performances, Satte pe Satta ripped off the plot, the scenes as well as the title from the Howard Keel starrer “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.”
Bunty Aur Babli
– Bonnie and Clyde
It is rare to see the father-son duo of the Bachchan family to share the screen, and the equally rare was the pairing of Abhishek and Rani Mukherjee. They were the Bonnie and Clyde of Bollywood. Literally! The film was inspired from the bench marking Hollywood Movie “Bonnie and Clyde.”
8. Chachi 420- Mrs. Doubtfire
Kamal Hassan tickled our funny bones and we can never get enough of our favorite Chachi. But it seems like Bollywood could not get enough of Robin William movies either, and that is why this film was an adaptation of Hollywood’s Mrs. Doubtfire.
9. Black- The Miracle Worker
We were emotional, inspired and we adored Rani Mukherjee for this movie. However, we wished that the writers put in as much effort as the actors instead of duplicating the screenplay of “The Miracle Worker.”
10. Life in A Metro- The Apartment
Remember how you changed a few words of your assignment so the teacher would not catch you? It looks like the writers of this movie took it as a life lesson since it was an adaptation of the Hollywood Movie “The Apartment.”
