Not all the following movies are straight copies; most of them are just adaptations. However, some of the movies such as ‘Fool N Final’ for instance are plain blatant copies. Even though there are loads of other movies made using Hollywood inspirations we’ve mentioned only the less popular movies or adaptations u might not have recognized.

Now, nobody has problem with well made adaptations like Taxi No.9211,Thiruda Thiruda, Kshna Kshnam etc which just take the central idea and give the Indian audience movies well worked upon. These movies pay proper respects to their actual versions. But, most of the other movies just make such terrible movies which not only degrade themselves but, also the originals…let us encourage originality. 

 hope u’ve enjoyed reading through the list
