If you ever feel like lamenting the total lack of originality in Hollywood, take comfort (or despair) in the fact that it's not the only movie industry with a habit of remaking other people's stuff. Bollywood, the unbelievably hard-working Indian commercial film industry (it produces more than a thousand movies a year), is quite fond of repurposing American film premises for local consumption.

Indian film producers have put their own twist on a variety of genres - from dark thrillers to wacky rom-coms to heartfelt dramas, and everything in between. These Bollywood remakes of Hollywood films, seen side-by-side with their inspirations, make for an intriguing contrast.
