The plagiarism culture has hardly left anything untouched in Indian cine industry. The culture of outsourcing of foreign ideas was not followed during the golden age of Indian cinema particularly during the early 1950s. It only became popular in ‘70s when the rock culture gripped the entertainment world. From then to now numerous songs and movies have been copied by our film industries by foreign film industries.

Many a times, script is copied within the different entertainment industries of the country by paying copyright fees. Many hit Bollywood movies are a copy paste of southern movies, like Salman Khan starrer Wanted was copied from Telugu blockbuster Pokhri, Rowdy Rathore was also copied from a Telugu movie of the same name. Lack of creativity and innovation has forced Bollywood filmmakers to buy or steal ideas from their counterpart industries to make a film.

Here are the list of some Bollywood movies which are copied from Hollywood: Murder from the Hollywood movie Unfaithful, Agneepath from Scarface, Sarkar from The Godfather, Players from the Italian job, Sholay from the film The Magnificient Seven.

Recently there was a huge controversy over the film pk and critics said that the film was copied from Akshay Kumar starer ‘Oh My God’.

Killing the music too

Rock and Bollywood songs mixed together with vernacular lyrics now make a complete package for jagrans and other religious meets. Rabindra Sangeet, folk songs are transformed into modern songs and are played in many popular TV serials.

Here is the list of some songs which are copied from English songs,:

Haan Haan Yeh Pyaar Hai(Dillagi) from Can’t Take My Eyes off of You, Dil le le lena from Macarena, Suno Zara from You Needed Me, Ae dil hai mushkil from Oh my darling Clementine, Main Teri Hoon Janam from the theme of Chariots of fire, Chura liya hai tumne (R.D. Burman) from If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium (Walter Scharf).

“People have different opinions, as there is always a clash of originality and remix, the younger generation though liked these type of entertainment but actually it harms the originality”, says senior editor of a music magazine.
