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 ShahCopied From: Deep Forest (Deep Forest)Note: Simply Hilarious!
Hindi Song: Mehbooba Mehbooba (Sholay)
Music Director: R.D. BurmanCopied 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. BurmanCopied From: When I Need You (Leo Sayer)Note: Seriously?
Hindi Song: Aa Ab Laut Chalen (Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai)
Music Director: Shankar JaikishanCopied 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. BurmanCopied 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 MalikCopied 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-DarshanCopied 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-LalitCopied 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 ShahCopied 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: Chura Liya Hai Tumne (Yaadon Ki Baraat)
Music Director: R.D. BurmanCopied 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 MalikCopied 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 MalikCopied 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 MalikCopied From: A-Tisket A-Tasket (Children's song)Note: Wow!
Hindi Song: Ek Sharaarat Hone Ko Hai (Duplicate)

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