Say It Ain't So!

May 03, 2005


Bollywood, Bollyweird, Bollycat. MEOW! I positively love to play 'Hollywood Connection' with Hindi movies and now I can do it online, weeee! Bollycat is here, friends, to compile and catalog a comprehensive (read: MASSIVE) list of all "plagiarism and forgotten inspirations in the Indian movie industry". Sweet justice. Waaahooo. YAHTZEE!

======> ?????

I've always been aware of the manymanymany rip-offs but to see them all listed out like that is something else. I was surprised by a few of them too, like Black, Sholay, and the one movie I thought was so *real*, Khoon Bhari Maang! Oh ya, Lagaan doesn't escape either. Fak. Yea, some of the 'cats' are rather far out (see Dil Chahta Hai) but it's all in good fun innit? Can't hardly wait until the song list comes out...

Ad-dho kalak laage che load karva maate.. spruce it up yaar.

As for the copies.. I knew about all of them, some the hard way (Magnificent Seven (MS), Sholay). But was happy to learn that MS was copied from a Japanese/Chinese movie called 'Seven Samurai'.

Amrit jee, NOW we have come full circle. See Hemu's 1st comment. MS is mos def based on SS. I think a lot of spaghetti westerns are based on Japanese movies.

The trend seems to have found its way to horror genre in recent times. Though the Japanese seem to do it better y'know. Like The Ring, I found it much scarier in Japanese. The whole love angle doesn't exist in the original, which makes it that much darker. Since I'm on the topic, I recommend The Suicide Club to anyone who is feeling the need to get seriously creeped out!
