5 Bollywood movies which are too good for remakes

  1. Sholay

This drama epic was directed by Ramesh Sippy in the year 1975. The movie starts with two hot shot heroes Veeru (Dharmendra) and Jai (Amitabh Bachchan) who are small-town crooks, later hired by Thakur Baldev Singh to capture Daku Gabbar Singh alive or dead. Gabbar Singh the villain has created a massacre in the village of Ramgarh and Jai and Veeru are expected to help the people of the village, indirectly!

  1. Andaz Apna Apna

Their life takes a turn when both of them vie to win over a multi- millionaire daughter’s heart and become her spouse. The movie involves ultimate characters, rib-tickling dialogues and Oscar winning direction.

  1. Abhimaan

A beautiful romantic drama directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee in 1973 displays the true bond of marriage and how success of a woman takes over the pride of a man. We have always heard that there is a fine line difference between self respect and ego; hence, this movie is the best example of such a phrase. Story revolves around Subir (Amitabh Bachchan) who is a famous singer and one day encourages the same talent in her wife Uma (Jaya Bhaduri). Their life takes a rough turn when she gains more popularity followed by jealousy and hatred between the two. The film surely will take you through a rollercoaster of mixed emotions and every-green collection of songs.

  1. Lagaan
Movie with different genres was directed by well known Ashutosh Gowariker in 2001. It revolves around the time when India was under British Raj. A group of villagers from Champaner led by Bhuvan (Aamir Khan) challenge the British in the game of cricket to get their land tax sign away. The main trouble occurs when they all realize that none of the villager is aware of the sport. Things take a favorable turn when Elizabeth (Rachel Shelley) helps them to learn the sport. This epic movie tends to arise the patriotic feeling among the mass and convey the message that no work is impossible if faith is kept.
  1. Guide

Inspired by R.K. Narayan’s novel, this movie was directed by Vijay Anand and Tad Danielewski. The story starts when Marco (Kishore Sahu) along with his wife Rosie (Waheeda Rehman) hire a tourist guide Raju (Dev Anand)  who shows them caves for Marco’s research work. The story takes a brutal phase when Rosie learns about Marco’s affair and then gets involved with Raju. Here, Raju motivates Rosie to go ahead with her dancing career. She rises as a star and eventually Raju becomes dissolute- gambling and drinking. The movie shows how love, money and helplessness takes over these three people’s lives. An ultimate dramatic piece of work!
