In Bollywood, film remakes are in vogue these days. A series of films either take inspiration or are exact remakes of regional or international films. Are original story lines lacking in the film industry?

I think there is no harm if we remake regional films to promote a subject to a wider range of audience. But the filmmakers must give proper credit to the original films.

I second you Sheena. The number of remakes has substantially increased in Bollywood in the name of inspiration. I think regional films have much better and original story lines these days.

Nisha there is no harm in promoting a subject but every other film should not be a remake. This is become the case in Bollywood these days.

Bollywood is not only lifting scripts from regional or international films but is also focusing on remakes of old Bollywood classics. Sholey, Khoobsoorat, Zanjeer and many more have been remade.

Especially commercial Bollywood movies take inspiration from South Indian movies. There are innumerable movies that fall in this category like Tere Naam remake of Sethu, Wanted remake of Pokkiri, Bhul Bhullaiya remake of Manichitrathazhu, Bodyguard remake of Kaavala etc.

Sometimes remake of Bollywood film does not make any sense. They should come out with new idea and new movies.....

But somehow don`t you guys think that this shows that the directors are scared of experimenting with original story? It seems they don`t want to risk their investment. Remakes are fine but original stories should also be made.

You are right, Sophia. But I don`t have any issue provided the makers are giving credit to the original films.

Many directors and actors depend on remakes as they are scared of taking risk. They think an original idea may not bring success and remakes guarantee a certain section of audience. Remakes are an easy way to get success.
