Well international movies are no doubt liked by everyone as they have best quality, effects, technology and are full of reality. They actually showcase the scenes as if they have been happened in reality like the same but despite they use virtual effects and technology to make the audience seat stuck.
Taking one example of the movie “Titanic” released in 1997, the movie had so much of advanced technology real image scenes despite being in a 90’s era, while the reality is that the movie has only been shot in a swimming pool. Can u believe it? In a pool. From that itself we can get an idea that Hollywood has a lot of advanced technology from which everyone gets inspired by. Bollywood on the other hand, has been working since very long to match the skills of Hollywood move, but somehow is still struggling. It is huge in making casual movies but is somehow struggling to showcase the effect technologies like Titanic showed. But still making remakes out of them has been really common since 2 decades, also Hollywood doing the same since few years.
Bollywood has created a lot of remakes of Hollywood movies which are really beautiful if you see them and compare with the originals. Everyone has an own taste of movies in terms of languages; like if someone likes to watch Hindi/English movies, they will watch only more of them and those who like both, would be willing to see them in both the languages. Hence Bollywood tries to make such movies to entertain the Indian audience as well, and here are some of the Hollywood remakes in Bollywood that didn’t let the originals down at all:
Taking inspiration from Park Chan-Wook’s 2003 South Korean thriller, Sanjay Gupta glossed over the gore and nudity of the original. But what Gupta was more than capable in doing was capturing that feeling of dread and doom, which worked well for Sanjay Dutt who gave his career-best performance.
MRS. DOUBTFIRE- CHACHI 420
Adapted from Robin Williams” MRS.DOUBTFIRE” Kamal Hassan put together this laugh riot bringing with him gifted characters like Amrish Puri, Om Puri, Paresh Rawal and Nasser. This was a movie where he successfully indianised the plot of a divorced father dressing up as a nanny to see his daughter.
THE GODFATHER- SARKAR
It was beautifully adapted Copolla’s saga about a crime family to Maharashtra bringing the real life father-son duo of Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan on screen. Ably supported by actors like Kay Kay Menon and Zakir Husain, Abhishek Bachchan delivered a knockout performance closely modelled on Al Pacino’s Michael.
A KISS BEFORE DYING- BAAZIGAR
A classic American noir released in 1956, the Hollywood version served as the inspiration for Abbas-Mustan’s 1993 super hit. Paving the way for the new actresses Shilpa Shetty and Kajol, the movie established Shah Rukh Khan as an actor unlike any of his contemporaries of that time. And Bollywood also came up with a backstory for the dastardly acts of its protagonist.
THE MIRACLE WORKER- BLACK
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s remake was based on the 1962 biographical film which followed the life of American author Helen Keller and her tutor Anne Sullivan. Amitabh Bachchan played the role of the tutor in the Indian remake, where he educated Rani Mukherjee’s character even as he suffered from bouts of Alzheimer’s. Bhansali did a pretty good job, even if he indulged himself a little too much.
WEST SIDE STORY- JOSH
Mansoor Khan and his hat trick of remakes included adapting this Hollywood classic to modern day Goa, which saw the two rival gangs called Eagle and Bichhoo. The love track which formed the crux of the story saw Chandrachur Singh and Aishwarya Rai jingling to Anu Malik’s music.
PRIMAL FEAR- DEEWANGEE
Even though Anees Bazmee’s Bollywood remake is stretched far beyond it should have, but it matches up to Edward Norton’s ace performance thanks to a restrained, delirious Ajay Devgn. However, Akshaye Khanna is no match for his Hollywood counterpart, Richard Gere.
HENCE THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST BOLLYWOOD REMAKES OF HOLLYWOOD MOVIES AND NOT ONLY BOLLYWOOD, BUT HOLLYWOOD TOO ADAPTS SOME HINDI MOVIES IN ENGLISH, AS SAID ABOVE TO ENTERTAIN THE AUDIENCE. AND THIS REMAKING THING IS NOT AT ALL BAD AS PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES GET TO WATCH SOME VERY INTERESTING MOVIES THEY CANT SEE IN SOME OTHER LANGUAGE, BUT IN A LANGUAGE OF THEIR OWN.
