I remember there was a time when every second Bollywood movie was an exact almost scene for scene rip off of a Hollywood movie. These days it seems like they are taking inspiration more so then just copying entire dialogues and plots. I also noticed recently that a lot of times when they do copy material, they are doing so from more obscure material instead of well known and popular Hollywood/Foreign material. What does it look like to you?

Yes it seems that they are copying less of hollywood now, since they are now currently obsessed with remaking all their old classics Tongue

I agree. There is definitely more awareness now, so bollywood has no choice but to come up with something original OR call their movies a remake and buy the rights. Otherwise, people call them out on it.

I mean, movies from the 90s were such ripoffs, but very few knew because the times were different.
Like last night, my friend was like, "hey lets watch this movie I watched, Leon: The Professional, it was really good!"
So she started describing ONE scene to me. Just ONE and I stopped her and told her what happened in the rest of the movie. She asked me if I had seen it, and I said no.
I hadnt seen Leon the Professional, but I had seen Bichu.
Which was, believe me when I say, a SCENE FOR SCENE, WORD FOR WORD copy of the original
