I recollect "Ghosts" starring Patrick Swayze was a big hit in the 80's. Many Bollywood directors cashed in on lifting the entire theme of the movie & making Indianised versions having lovers separating & one returning in the form of a ghost trying to reunite & so on. The remade movies fared well then.

Such love & separation formulas click in Bollywood with instant success.

The Mahesh Bhatt version was the one I remember. It was comical but I enjoyed it. The original was like a desi masala itself, and Bhatt made a good copy

The movies listed above are made by directors who know how to make a good desi masala movie given an original Hollywood flick. So how about we come up with our favorite Hollywood films which can be remade into good desi masala movies?
Have not seen Singh is Kinng yet, but judging by reviews on echarcha, here goes -

Singh is Kingg - (director: Anees Bazmee) The movie is a copy of the 1961 Frank Capra movie Pocketful of Miracles and the 1989 Jackie Chan movie Miracles.[2]

I am tired to watching bolly movies with English remakes becasue they are made bad. Even for the Sinng is Kiing, the one with Jackie is much better. It is more funnier and with Jackie there are better stunts hands down. SO not sure why watch hindi version when the original is better.
For sing is king the director made a big hype about Akys stunts when he jumps from one elevator to other, but i think if he is paid 7 cr per movie, then he better jump from one lift to other
One more trivia...the music rights were given for some 12 cr. that is too big for any movie i belive.

And to make it worse, the music really sucked. Other than the Snoop Dogg song, there was nothing much to talk about.

Even the one with Snoop was not that great. So 12 cr was all the money put in drain

The producer made his money and I'm sure a lot of music was sold too. Just coz of the hype though. They had almost 1800 prints out for this movie, the highest ever for a Bollywood movie. Only ones that got screwed was the audience.

I like the Snoop DOgg Song and the 'Ek Color ke 13 patte, ..." song.

Agree... just recently watched "Garam Masala" (purana wala)... it is a must watch, especially for Aruna Irani as a masked, shorty shorts-wearing bandit
