Bollywood & Copycat Phenomenon

Since, Nepali has been dumped down these days by themselves, and Nepali movies being on the lime light after Nepal's politics, we thought why not talk about it. It's about Bollywood, the indian movie industry and the copycat phenomenon.

Bollywood has broaden itself worldwide with huge budget, higher quality and much cultural stories than the east. But there's stuffs about it most of us don't know. It the replica style or the copycat phenomenon.

Nepali film industry has been facing this problem since long back. Most of the nepali movies are blamed for coping stories and songs from the indian movies. And its cent percent true. But bollywood isn't different. Even bollywood movie stories and songs are of same type and it started long back with Satte Pe Satta, the Amitabh Bachchan movie which was a frame-to-frame copy of an english classic movie (as per our knowledge). Most of the songs composed by Bappi Leheri were copied from english songs. That secrete trend continued till the 90s with movies like 'Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha', 'Badshah', 'Ajnabee', 'Dil Chahata Hai' and many more; and in the music field Anu Malik gave his big effort. Later slight change came with the millennium and bollywood stopped copying english movies and went for korean movies. Movies at recent times are complete copy of korean movies and are big hit. And korean music was broght in hindi by Pritam. We salute for bollywood's cunning ability for fool bollywood movie fan around the world. To name few movies like 'Jab We Met', 'Kismat Konnection', 'Welcome', 'Ugly Aur Pagli', 'Bachna E Haseeno', 'Singh Is King' are complete replica of korean movies.

Here are some movie suggestions we would suggest you to watch and laugh at bollywood movies:
My Sassy Girl (Korean)
Changing Partners aka Love Now (Korean)
See You After School (Korean)
Marrying The Mafia - All Parts (Korean)
American Pie (English)
Note: Satte Pe Satta, Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha and Badshah are also a complete copy of english movies but we forgot their name. If you have seen any such movie brought back in hindi by bollywood, please do comment about it.
