Local filmmakers commit plagiarism without really trying. That’s why it becomes funny.

In the land of elephants and strange colorful dances, high-quality films have been made in recent years – take RRR or Monkeyman, for example. However, just a few years ago, India was associated not only with comedy action films, but also with handmade Hollywood remakes.

Aabra Ka Daabra (2004)

With such a simple title, Bollywood fans got their own version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and it’s so bad it’s even good in places.

Songs and dances every 10 minutes, a duel on eggs, a female Dumbledore and Voldemort in the form of a purple winged head – maybe all this is in your nightmares, but at least you will laugh.

Aaryamaan (1997)

Indian Star Wars became a series for 90 episodes, and there is real madness in each of them.

The plot copies almost exactly the original, seasoning it with local flavor in the form of Jedi dances (it is better to see it once), and the picture is supplemented with catastrophically bad special effects and, let’s say, a specific costume choice. You will remember the Hindu Darth Vader for a long time.

“Robot” (2010)

Even ‘The Terminator’ for Indian filmmakers turned out to have a twist in the form of the charming Aishwarya Rai in the role of basically a robot sent back in time to save the planet.

Imagine if Arnold Schwarzenegger in an American movie suddenly started dancing for no apparent reason? And viewers of ‘Robot’ don’t even have to imagine it.

Generous (1988)

Bollywood tried to launch its own cinematic universe long before the first Iron Man, shooting a remake of Superman and Spider-Man at the same time.

It’s true that Spidey here is a spectacular beauty who not only sticks to the walls, but also to a pumped up man with a huge S on his chest.

And if you don’t want scary, but really worthy films from India, take a look at our top 3 best new action films of the past years that cause joy, not Spanish shame.
