The awesome folks over at Buzzfeed just brought something amazing to our attention. It has to do with Bollywood. Don't know much about Bollywood? Well...
Bollywood, based in Mumbai, India, is a very legitimate counterpart to Los Angeles' Hollywood. Its films come complete with slightly ridiculous and extravagant song-and-dance scenes and stars that make a boatload of money, sometimes crossing over to other parts of the world (see Slumdog Millionaire).
Bollywood is a creative hub and great talent comes through there, but that's not to say they don't borrow a little bit from American pop culture. These are 15 times that they hijacked American movie posters and put their own spin on them for some Bollywood films.
1. Hulchul (2004) vs. My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
2. O Teri (2014) vs. The Other Guys (2010)
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
3. Akele Hum Akele Tum (1995) vs. Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
4. Will You Marry Me (2012) vs. How I Met Your Mother (2005)
Hey, I get it. If HIMYM can stay on the air for a decade, they gotta be doing something right.
5. Talaash (2012) vs. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011)
Only a year later, this look was still fresh. Why not capitalize on it?
6. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011) vs. Lords of Dogtown (2005)
They took the shirtless dude, made him buffer, then put him in the middle. Way different.
7. Ghajini (2009) vs. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
It's tried and true.
8. Naksha (2006) vs. Sahara (2005)
This one is a little different because the guy on the right is facing a different direction. So, like...
9. Aitraaz (2004) vs. The Graduate (1967)
Oh, is our cover too similar to The Graduate, you say? Hmm... never heard of it.
10. Rowdy Rathore (2012) vs. The Replacement Killers (1998)
Don't anger me!
11. Phoonk 2 (2010) vs. The Chaser (2008)
Both of these scare me, to be honest.
12. Murder 3 (2013) vs. Jennifer’s Body (2009)
It's hard for me to look at her bite a stem with thorns on it, but it says it right there... "Love will be murdered." Poor love...
