How many times have you heard of a Bollywood film inspired by either a Tollywood or a Hollywood film? More number of times than you can count, right? We agree. However, there are some movies which did so well in Bollywood, they inspired some really great Hollywood movies. Here is looking at Bollywood films which not only made a mark on the Indian audience, but on the rest of the world as well!

1. A Wednesday (A Common Man)

Perhaps one of the best movies Neeraj Pandey has made in his career, A Wednesday received so much praise, it was critically acclaimed internationally as well! So loved was it by the world of Hollywood, they thought just one film like this wasn’t enough. Sri Lankan film maker, Chandan Rutnam loved it so much, he officially remade it as A Common Man in the year 2013. With Ben Kingsley playing the role of Naseeruddin Shah, Rutnam recreated the movie with only slight tweaks in the script. A Common Man did so well, it bagged not one, but several titles, such as the Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor awards at the Madrid International Film Festival.

2. Jab We Met (Leap Year)

When Jab We Met released in the year 2007, it quite literally redefined love and all the expectations people have from relationships. For years after, this movie became a gospel of sorts for when it came to love stories. This is why, when Leap Year was announced, it came as no surprise to people all over the world. Leap Year had Amy Adams and Matthew Goode in pivotal roles! While Jab We Met had everything you could want from a romantic, feel good Bollywood movie, Leap Year made you want to think about the choices you make. With an equally great premise, both the movies stay embedded in your memories because of their great storytelling.

3. Vicky Donor (Delivery Man)

When Vicky Donor released in India, it made quite a splash at the box office and with the critics because of its unique concept. While the Bollywood world and its audience really appreciated this concept, Hollywood loved it to no end as well. Taking inspiration from the story of Vicky Donor, Hollywood produced a brand new movie with the same concept, called Delivery Man! The only major difference between the two films was, while Vicky in Vicky Donor helps give birth to more than 500 children, the lead in Delivery Man helps give birth to around 100 kids!

4. Darr (Fear)

Remember the Yash Chopra directorial, Darr? The psychological thriller starred Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Sunil Dutt in the lead roles. It did so well, it received appreciation from fans and critics alike. Still remembered as one of the most iconic characters played by Shah Rukh Khan, Darr was the inspiration for the Hollywood thriller, Fear. From the characters, to the story line and to the direction style, Fear was quite literally copied from Darr. When Fear released, the movie did so amazingly well, it was one of the biggest hits of 1996.

5. Sangam (Pearl Harbour)

Directed by Raj Kapoor and starring Vyjayanthimala, Raj Kapoor and Rajendra Kumar in the lead roles, Sangam was a sensational success when it hit the screens. A love triangle set during a war, this movie was not just famous for being an iconic one, but for Raj Kapoor’s character as well. Kapoor’s character in Sangam is deemed as the best one ever played by him! So well done was this film, it became loved across the borders as well. It inspired the 2001 super hit Hollywood film, Pearl Harbour. With the script and everything else being the same, the only thing which was perhaps drastically different was the fact, Pearl Harbour was set against the backdrop of the Pearl Harbour attack!

When you see your favourite Bollywood films acting as inspiration for Hollywood movies, you know things are right in the world! If you think we missed out on any other Hollywood movies inspired by Bollywood movies, comment and let us know!

15 Years Of Lakshya,Bollywood Movies About War,Mango Bollywood,Bollywood Movie Latest News,Hrithik Roshan on 15 years of Lakshya,Lakshya completes 15 years,Hrithik Roshan celebrates 15 years of Lakshya,Best Bollywood movies based on war stories,Best Bollywood War Movies

Remember how Hrithik Roshan grew up and joined the Indian Army to inspire the rest of us in Lakshya?  As today marks 15 years since the release of this film, here is taking a look at some war movies which were not just about the lives of Indian soldiers but also about war and what the soldiers went through:

1. Lakshya

Directed by Farhan Akhtar, Lakshya told the story of Lieutenant Karan Shergill, who leads his squad to victory by capturing a territory taken over by Pakistan.  While war does play a crucial role in this movie, the other issue with which this film deals is how people grow when faced with responsibility.  From facing real life issues head on, to understanding the discipline and time which goes into becoming an adult, Lakshya is a true tribute to war and soldiers.

2. Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo

Directed by Anil Sharma, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo tells the story of how terrorists attacked the holy temple of Kedarnath.  Apart from the story about this attack, the film also talks about how a man joins the Indian Army for a few years before moving to the United States. However, after he joins, he realises the amount of effort which goes into being a soldier and from then on, everything about his life changes.  Everything about this movie is heartwarming and shows how much people can do when pushed into a corner.

3. LOC Kargil

Based on the Kargil War fought between India and Pakistan, LOC Kargil was directed by J.P. Dutta.  A step by step account of everything which happened during the Kargil War, the film brings to the fore the hardships of war and what soldiers go through on a daily basis.  A multi layered story, LOC Kargil talks about the soldiers who made the entire operation a success.  Everything about this movie made you not only respect the amount of effort soldiers put into the war but also how much personal sacrifices they make for their country.

4. Airlift

Unlike the other films, Airlift tells the story of how a businessman helps evacuate Indians in Kuwait who are stuck there during the invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein.  While this is one of the primary issues about which this movie talks, Airlift also looks at how the lead puts his personal life aside to help his fellow countrymen when in need.  A true patriotic movie, Airlift makes you fall in love with how far people can go to help their countrymen when required.

5. Border

Director J.P. Dutta’s shot to fame, Border was based on the Indo Pakistan War of 1971.  Touted to be one of the best war films to have been released, this movie showed what our soldiers went through to make our country a safe place.  From night patrols to killing men at gunpoint, Border makes you realise how deep the spirit of patriotism runs in a soldier’s blood.
