6 times when Bollywood wrecked Hollywood movies
Just few days back Tiger Shroff happily announced that he will be stepping into shoes of his idol Sylvester Stallone in Hindi remake of his cult classic film RAMBO.
Interestingly his announcement received a quick response from the iconic action hero Sylvester himself. Sylvester wrote, “I read recently they are remaking Rambo in India!! .. Great character.. hope they don't wreck it.”
And we believe Sylvester’s concern is quite valid if you have a look at the following list of Hindi adaptation of hit Hollywood flicks which tanked miserably at box office.
Not just this RAMBO remake even Salman Khan’s upcoming film TUBELIGHT is official adaptation of 2015 Hollywood film LITTLE BOY and Saif Ali Khan’s next, CHEF is also an official remake of American film by same name.
However it has to be seen whether these films live up to the mark set by their Hollywood counterparts or not.
Meanwhile, we bring you 6 such Hindi adaptations which failed miserably at Box office and it must have most certainly made the makers of the original film wonder why they sold the rights of their film at first place.
BANG BANG! adapted from KNIGHT AND DAY
Siddharth Anand adapted BANG BANG! from KNIGHT AND DAY starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. The Hindi remake starred two drop dead gorgeous actors Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif but the only saving grace for this film was Hrithik’s chiseled body and Katrina’s cute looks nothing else worked in the film’s favour.
BROTHERS adapted from WARRIOR
BROTHERS starring Akshay Kumar and Siddharth Malhotra is an official remake of 2011flick WARRIOR. The Hindi adaptation was directed by Karan Malhotra. Despite having power-packed performers in the Hindi remake the film turned out to be a dud at box office.
GOD TUSSI GREAT HO adapted from BRUCE ALMIGHTY
Directed by Rumi Jaffrey GOD TUSSI GREAT HO starred Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra. The novelty with which the Hollywood film had treated this fantasy drama genre film was missing in the Hindi remake and without a doubt the film bombed at the box office.
PLAYERS adapted from THE ITALIAN JOB
PLAYERS, directed by Abbas Mustan was remake of THE ITALLIAN JOB. The original film was a hit and did well both financially and critically whereas the Hindi remake was a huge flop.
SALAAM-E-ISHQ adapted from LOVE ACTUALLY
LOVE ACTUALLY was a story of love and its magnitude. The film very beautifully portrayed different stages and types of love. Whereas SALAAM-E-ISHQ failed to portray the beauty of love in the way the original film had.
WE ARE FAMILY adapted from STEPMOM
Again directed by Siddharth Malhotra, WE ARE FAMILY starring Kajol, Kareena and Arjun Rampal received lukewarm response at box office.
