Bollywood is going through a sad phase and this is not for COVID. It seems, all the filmmakers are facing a creative block. Moreover, instead of taking a break, they are ruining all the good movies B-town has. It has been a trend of coming up with a REMAKE.
Well, remakes have always been here. Bollywood has often got ‘inspired’ by regional and foreign films. However, this time, it is not even about language. Remember, RGV Ki Aag the blasphemous remake of Sholey? The movie buffs were disgusted with the cringe-worthy recreation of Ramesh Sippy’s milestone. Now, this has become so common that makers are simply picking an old movie, adding some Rap numbers and making a new(?) film out of it.
Looking at the TREND, as a movie-lover, we are scared for the classic ventures which shouldn’t be affected by this constant display of mediocracy. We picked a few among the many that should remain ‘one and only’.
Disclaimer: Not all the old movies are classics anyway. Films like Himmatwala and Pati Patni Aur Woh should be left alone because they deserve to get lost in oblivion. We are only concerned about the gems of Hindi cinema which better be untouched for the sake of CINEMA. Check out the album below.
