Remember Drishyam, the super hit remade version of the original Malayalam film and how it created a huge furor at the box office? This is what happens when directors remake films from the South! Check out these movies that have been remade into these brilliantly faring Bollywood movies!
Wanted was not only a remade version of the Telugu blockbuster film Pokiri, but was also a movie that redefined Salman Khan‘s career in the industry. Everything about this particular version screamed action, style and Salman Khan, the perfect dedication to a Tollywood super hit movie, right?
Yuva and Ayitha Ezhuthu, the Hindi and Tamil versions of Mani Ratnam’s blockbuster, released around the same time and while some people say the Tamil version was the original film, both the movies did really, really well!
3. Chachi 420
While this is not necessarily a South Indian film remade into a North Indian film (the other way around actually,) Chachi 420 was perhaps one of the most spectacular remakes to date. While Kamal Hassan was a brilliant actor in the movie, what stole the show was the music and lyrics in the film!
4. Ram Aur Shyam
Bollywood’s response to the brilliant 1964 film Ramudu Bheemudu, Ram Aur Shyam told the story of twins who get lost at birth, only to find each other in times of need! Not only does it show friendship at its basic level, this movie was also a tribute to Tollywood’s storytelling skills!
Although it was said the original inspiration for this Aamir Khan starrer came from Memento, many say that the characters for the protagonist and the antagonist were taken from the Tamil movie with the same name. The film did really well at the box office and portrayed Aamir Khan in a new light!
