Bollywood & remakes

What is it with Bollywood & remakes suddenly ? (No, I am not talking about the hollywood rip-offs or "inspiration") Perhaps, Devdas started the trend (SRK trying to enact the tragic hero which had been immortalized by the "tragic king" , Dilip Kumar). Ram Gopal Verma announced his intentions of remaking "Sholay" with Abhishek playing "veeru" , Amitabh playing "Gabbar" and Mohanlal playing " Thakur" .

Now we hear Farhan Akhtar plans to remake "Don" with Shah Rukh & Kareena. Hope they don't do to these movies what the "remixes" have done to the great old hindi songs !

  • What the crap! After making Lakshya and Dil Chahta Hai, both wonderfully crafted movies, he is going for SRK and Kareena.

    Hope the movie is a good one and not a crap

  • Seems to be a glossy marketing of the subject what they know already....

    Instead of remixing the same story, they are atleast honest in telling that they are remaking it once again.

  • it'd be foolish to expect these movies to be better than the originals - considering what high standards they set.

    at the same tmie, at least the movies will have less pretensions about remaking an old movie, unlike remixes.

  • All -- Hope the final product turns out to be better than the original !
