    you should watch the movies you wrote about with a little more attention. The couple decide to divorce and become friends with their future as lovers unknown in the movie ek main aur ek tu. Also deewangee is not the remake of fear but the john bipasha move aitbaar is. Please check your facts before you post.

    This is the stupidest biased list i’ve ever come across.
    For those clearly self-obsessed and racist white folks who thinks Indian films are a joke, why not review your Hollywood stupidity first and then come watch some classy Bollywood movies.
    1. Taare Zameen Par
    2. 3 Idiots
    3. Kahaani
    4. Talaash
    5. Black

    And for anyone that thinks that Indians are not creative while making movies, try to make a film which includes tradition, culture, ethnically diverse languages, SONGS AND DANCE. This is way more CREATIVE than flying robots and wizards and hamburgers.

      Just an FYI, this list was written by someone who isn’t white. And we have many lists that review poorly done movies in Hollywood. Thank you for the titles of these Bollywood movies.

    and its true that Bollywood copies from Hollywood, and maybe without giving them the credit , which even i feel is a wrong thing to do. But that doesn’t means i hate indian cinema.
    Infact , i love how bollywood makes their films with a bit of masala which makes it entertaining and less boring. But i would love to see indian film makers make up their own storylines or take something out of the novels that are written by indian authors.

    And all the guys above (mostly Pakis i guess) who misspelled the name of the film as “Momento”
    … i would suggest them to learn how to spell first , because the actual name is MEMENTO released on 2000.

    i had a chat friend a few years ago . Met him on myspace . He was an african american guy , and a fan of Bipasha and he clearly admitted that Hollywood copies a lot from Korean and Japanese films .
    Not to forget the film Dark Water (2005) starring Jennifer Connelly which is a copy of a 2002 Japanese film of the same name (source imdb)

    @ karan
    oh yeah , you mentioned in your post above that the idea of carrying the baby on the back of actress Sigourney Weaver while fighting with the aliens was taken from Jhansi Laxmibai ?? LOL .
    C’mon man, don’t humour us with your ridiculous views.
    I mean , any brave mother with a helpless baby would act like that in such a situation .
    Im sure many women in the past acted like that in times of war or dealing with criminals etc.

    Great article, can’t believe they ripped off Bruce Almighty. You also left out Bad Boys=Bade Miyan Chote Miyan.

    The Bollywood talentless hacks are very god at ripping of hw, because the so called directors n the producers are lazy and unimaginative characters.
    I’m glad that HW is starting to sue the talentless hacks at BW, now the BW movies will be even more intolerable and torturing.

    i guess whatever it is whather indian films are copied from hollywood movies or hollywood movies copied from indian movies i know this much that these copied movies are mostly good and they earn a lot so instead of fighting that my country is good etc and etc we should watch these movies and praise the directors who actually made or copied the movies instead of praising the country
    i m an indian so for sure i support indian movies and i really like them

    Here’s my pick:
    Agneepath (Scarface)
    Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahi (It Happened One Night)
    Akele Hum Akele Tum (Kramer vs. Kramer)
    Koi Mil Gaya (ET)
    Kaante (Reservoir Dogs)
    Black (The Miracle Worker)

    The list is practically endless!

    @Vijay: Seriously? Pointing out the glaring ignorance of the author is blind patriosm now? Shall I then call you anti-Indian/self-loathing because of your support towards the obviously skewed opinion of the writer?

    One understands that the cast system’ still exists in Indian society almost as though it wasn’t outlawed in 1950. This notion that people with ‘white skin’ are of some superior value, was the same pathology of the self-hating Adolph Hitler, who was thought to be part Jewish and thus hated the Jews more completely than anyone else. This is clear because that ‘cast system’ causes one to disregard people with dark skin even if they are also Indian.

    The word ‘Bollywood’ is a rip off of ‘Hollywood’.
    I rest my case!

    I agree with the writer.
    I am an Indian but do not agree with blinded patriotism of some comment writers here.

    Bollywood is a joke, except 3idiots. Did you ever walk and dance around the streets of london or paris etc. singing a song with your girlfriend. In every typical bollywood movie, there will be a hero ,heroineand a villian. At some point of the film the heroine will be kidnapped by the villian and predictably the hero would fly in into their hideout from out of nowhere. Then the hero would run between bullets and kill about 100 bad guys with his bare hands. Then in the final face off with the villian he will definitely get shot somewhere in the shoulder but after some funny fight scenes he will finally kill the villain thus saving his girlfriend in the nick of time. I can also guarantee you that the hero and heroine would definitely go to some beautiful foreign country just to sing and dance together in the middle of nowhere

    karan, do you have sources for any of this? I’d love to read more, especially about the theft of E.T.

      its on the IMDb page of E.T. also read the wiki page on satyajit ray and E.T, also i think its on the wiki page of steven speilberg. if u r not Indian, i would suggest u to look for books on indian movies and satyajit ray. the guys at the academy awards came to kolkatta (india) to ray’s house to him his honorary award. steven speilberg, of course, rejects all the claims about ET.
