Hindi Movie Remakes We Saw in the Last Decade

While it was a trend to get inspired by Korean/English films in the 90s, in the last decade, Bollywood filmmakers decide to go back in time and simply remake what worked, say, 30 years ago. It became a formula to make Hindi classic movies again but not everyone did justice to the original. Check out this list to know which Bollywood films were remade.

Aag (2007)

Ram Gopal Varma took the gutsy decision to remake Sholay, which is considered the greatest Hindi film of all time. This move even received a thumbs-down from Jaya Bachchan and Hema Malini who were a part of the original.

Zanjeer (2013) 

The Zanjeer remake marked the Bollywood debut of South superstar – Ram Charan. Even Priyanka Chopra who was cast alongside him couldn't save this film from being a washout.

Agneepath (2012)

Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt absolutely nailed it in the remake of Agneepath. Both the actors took the film to another level as Vijay Deenanath Chauhan and Kancha Cheena respectively.

Himmatwala (2013)

Sajid Khan’s remake of this film that originally starred Jeetendra and Sridevi, had Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead roles. Himmatwala couldn't live up to the expectations and tanked at the box-office.

Karzzzz (2008)

Himesh Reshammiya was a household name in the early 2000s and thus the singer tried to cash in on his popularity by acting. He starred in Karzzzz, which had great music but a weak plot.
