Owing to the success of our previous installment, the music gurus of BollyCurry are back with another set of melodious tunes which have inspired our Bollywood composers to the point of plagiarism! Have a look...and listen!

Hindi Song: Gupt Gupt (Gupt)

Music Director: Viju Shah
Copied From: Deep Forest (Deep Forest)
Note: Simply Hilarious!

Hindi Song: Mehbooba Mehbooba (Sholay)

Music Director: R.D. Burman
Copied From: Say You Love Me (Demis Roussos)
Note: Despite being widely known, both songs are wince inducing.

Hindi Song: Tumse Milke (Parinda)

Music Director: R.D. Burman
Copied From: When I Need You (Leo Sayer)
Note: Seriously? 

Hindi Song: Aa Ab Laut Chalen (Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai)

Music Director: Shankar Jaikishan
Copied From: Ciao Ciao Bambina (Domenico Modugno)
Note: Slightly inspired - vaguely plagiarized

Hindi Song: Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle (Aa Gale Lag Jaa)

Music Director: R.D. Burman
Copied From: The Yellow Rose of Texas (Elvis Presley)
Note: Sounds like a crazy idea, but it actually turned out pretty well!

Hindi Song: Neend Churaayi Meri (Ishq)

Music Director: Anu Malik
Copied From: Sending All My Love (Tolga)
Note: Freestyle music should be done more often in Hindi cinema, another song receiving a tick!

Hindi Song: Tinak Tin Taana (Mann)

Music Director: Sanjeev-Darshan
Copied From: Yang Sedang-Sedang Saja (Iwan - Malaysian)
Note: Not a shred of originality on Sanjeev-Darshan's part, tut tut.

Hindi Song: Koi Mil Gaya (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai)

Music Director: Jatin-Lalit
Copied From: Take That Look off Your Face (Song And Dance)
Note: Et tu Jatin-Lalit? Although, only the beginning tunes are copied. Still, plagiarism is plagiarism!

Hindi Song: Tirchi Topiwaale (Tridev)

Music Director: Viju Shah
Copied From: The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You (Miami Sound Machine)
Note: Copied music was such a hit during the time but to directly lift the "oh's" as well?!

Hindi Song: Kya Kehna (Kya Kehna)

Music Director: Rajesh Roshan
Copied From: Oh Carol (Paul Anka)
Note: Both songs are really charming. Well done, there! 

Hindi Song: Aate Jaate (Maine Pyar Kiya)

Music Director: Raam Laxman
Copied From: I Just Called To Say I Love You (Stevie Wonder)
Note: Beyond amusing!

Hindi Song: Jaana Suno Hum (Khamoshi)

Music Director: Jatin-Lalit
Copied From: Bring the Wine (Paul Anka)
Note: Note for note, sigh.

Hindi Song: Chura Liya Hai Tumne (Yaadon Ki Baraat)

Music Director: R.D. Burman
Copied From: If it's Tuesday This Must Be Belgium (Walter Scharf)
Note: R.D.Burman did a neat job in altering the song, but the influence is inevitable. 

Hindi Song: Aisa Zakhm Diya (Akele Hum Akele Tum)

Music Director: Anu Malik
Copied From: Sweet Child in Time (Deep Purple)
Note: Shockingly, only the beginning and the ending is what-we-now-a-days-call 'inspired'.

Hindi Song: Dil Mera Churaaya Kyoon (Akele Hum Akele Tum)

Music Director: Anu Malik
Copied From: Last Christmas (Wham)
Note: The funniest thing is that in the movie, Aamir Khan's character sells this tune to another musician, and everyone makes a deal about 'stealing' credit for another's work!

Hindi Song: Ladna Jhagadna (Duplicate)

Music Director: Anu Malik
Copied From: A-Tisket A-Tasket (Children's song)
Note: Wow!

Hindi Song: Ek Sharaarat Hone Ko Hai (Duplicate)

Music Director: Anu Malik
Copied From: Slip and Slide (Laura Allen)
Note: Only the "la lai lai" tune is copied.

Hindi Song: Mujhe Neend Na Aaye (Dil)

Music Director: Anand-Milind
Copied From: Chunni Ud Ud Jaaye (Alaap - UK band)
Note: Impressive!

In a day and age where copyrighting can lead to major legal issues and accusation of un-creativity, what do BollyCurry readers have to say?
