« Filmfare Awards 2008: A Glamorous Night for Hindi Film | Main | Madhuri Dixit to appear on Nach Baliye this Saturday »

March 07, 2008



Till now, I largely distrust Bollywood remakes but if in this case they're making a farce which is what it sounds like and they market it as such, maybe people wouldn't feel as offended.

The trouble with most Bollywood remakes is they try to cash in on the name of the old one and then flip the story on its back in the middle of horrendously lavish settings. As if lavish settings could blind us to their wrong in the story altering.

I'm wary of remakes in general and feel they tend to kill the original a la Ram Gopal Varma's 'Sholay.' It'll be interesting to see if this one turns out to be any different.

Vijay Sappani

Remakes are becoming hits. In one way you can say that the industry lacks creativity, but in another way they are displaying creativity like the autp industry came out with the modern beetle and mini. Waiting to get a copy of the film.

Dr. Shamira

This was one of my most favourite bollywood movies when I was growing up! It will be interesting to see if they can live up to the blockbuster hit from the 80's!! Tough act to repeat!
