The loose remake of Changing Lanes was a surprise hit the movie
focuses on the unusual chemistry between John Abraham and Nana Patekar. Both Changing Lanes and Taxi No. 9211 were well received.
28. Awara Paagal Deewana (2002) inspired by The Whole Nine Yards
Both these movies will make you laugh and for all the right reasons.
Bruce Willis and Akshay Kumar play their parts with equal hilarity
and you will feel equally sad for Matthew Perry and Aftab
29. Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya (2001) inspired by Fatal Attraction (1987)
Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya has Urmila Matondkar in her finest element,
playing an obsessed lover. The inspiration behind this movie is the
much, much popular Fatal Attraction.

If you love or hate romantic movies, no matters, then you must watch
Serendipity . If you love Milenge Milenge , then you must watch
Serendipity . If you hated Milenge Milenge , then you just must watch
Serendipity . Basically, you must watch Serendipity . Basically you
have to follow the original path; original source of inspiration in order
to notice the copied version Milenge Milenge.
31. Hey Baby (2007) inspired by Trois Homme Et Un Couffin (1985)
Hey Baby is a typical Bollywood comedy complete with masala and
emotion. The original, Trois Homme Et Un Couffin is a French
comedy complete with unending confusion and chaos. It is a highly
entertaining movie that was nominated for the Best Foreign Film for
the 58th Academy Awards.
32. Ugly Aur Pagli (2008) inspired by My Sassy Girl (2001)
No one is quite sure what Ugly Aur Pagli is about and it is only
advisable to let it be that way. My Sassy Girl , on the other hand is a
highly successful romantic comedy about Gyeonwoo who falls in
love with The Girl.
33. Manoranjan (1974) inspired by Irma la Douce (1963)
Manoranjan is a revolutionary movie because it was perhaps the first
time that prostitution was shown without showing the lead as a fallen
woman. The inspiration comes from a French comedy called Irma la
Douce . Both the movies are pathbreaking and must not be missed.
That is called an inspiration!
34. Kartoos (1999) inspired by La Femme Nikita (1990)
Kartoos and Le Femme Nikita are about a criminal, trained by the
police to take down a gangster. But one must watch these movies
together and not because both are such great films but because
Bollywood could not come up with a woman lead like Nikita.The
movie was rejected anyway. Here the proverb gets the strongest step
of its own!
35. Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai (2002) inspired by My Best Friend’s
Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai is a movie reeling under the hopelessness of
clichés. It would have ended so much better than it ended the way My
Best Friend’s Wedding did or maybe not. It was doomed to be a
disaster from the beginning. My Best Friend’s Wedding Mulroney is
just the dream but its remake is kind of a nightmare.
36. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo(2015) inspired by The Prisoner Of
The story of the 2015 hit movie Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is known by
many, but very few know that the movie is actually a remake of
Hollywood movie, The Prisoner Of Zenda. The Prisoner Of Zenda
which was adapted in a Hollywood movie is actually a novel written
by Anthony Hope in 1894, and PRDP is merely another Bollywood
remake of the same. Both these movies tell the story of a prince.
37. Hate Story 3(2015) inspired by Indecent Proposal(1993)
The Hate Story 3 is a blatant ripoff of the 1993 Hollywood drama
film, Indecent Proposal. Both the stories start off as a couple being
passionately in love with each other, and a business man bringing a
twist when he offers to pay an enormous sum to the husband to let
him sleep with his wife. the Basic storyline has been lifted from the
Hollywood movie for sure.
