Yes copying in bollywood is not new, but this instance was just ridiculous. Its just ditto copy of the song. There are an old couple walking in the original song, so they put an old couple in the copy, two girls sitting on the bench are humming in the original song so they put two girls in the copy. I mean everything is same. They stole the concept of the bench, okay (that's not new), they took the garden's look, okay but they just took everything. Its like they don't even think while copying. This is just dreadful...

shocked ??? i thought it has been constitutionalized.

the good news is that previously they used to copy only hollywood songs, movies,costumes,styles etc. Now they do it from different parts of the world like korea, thiland ,egypt, middle-east. So who needs national geographic?


Its unbelievable to see how billions of rupees are invested behind movies that are either frame by frame copied or have no substance ( or both).

forget hollywood , even if you compare our movies with iran's movies , and you will understand how creative a low budget irani movie can be and how worthless a big budget bollywood movie can be.

PS keep your fingers crossed for PAA

It is called 'inspired-from' diplomatically.

i really don't know (if it is not 'inspired', then we will have to restructure the principle theories of psychology,behavioural science,probablity ), but i saw the making of the movie on TV , and the biggest thing about the movie is the make over of Amitabh Bacchan into a school kid , and that has been done by international artists.I think its ok, we just outsource the creative part , we still do the rest in our own 'desi' way.

its not just exclusive for bollywood . From ISRO,DRDO to all R&Ds , this copycat thing goes on. Have you seen how media channels were shouting that 'Chandrayan has found the water on the moon' while the probe was from NASA.


Am i bashing my own country? no, i love it very much..but i find our media very very irritating . I can live without giving a damn about politicians , actors , but i have to watch news channels , and for 70% of the time they drive me crazy.

And this isn't a new phenomenon either. Bollywood has been stealing since as long as it has been in existence. Listen to this Song from a Hollywood movie from 1946 and tell me what Hindi classic "beautifully composed" by musical genius O. P. Nayyar reminds you of.

Correct, the news channels are nowadays like entertainment channels. No news, just rubbish. And this all started with India TV and now most of the news channels cannot be said as news channels. I just read the newspaper next day to get the news...

All fair and sound but would you please stop refereing any english song as hollywood song or creation?

But to their credit, they did wait a few years so most people would've forgotten.

Nice Vikas, also the new movie Click seems to be a copy of Shutter, and the movie Teen Patti seems to be "inspired" from 21...
