The Bollywood film industry is well-known for recreating films from the South. At times, Bollywood filmmakers are not imaginative, they transform decent storey plots into poor movies and steal stories from other film industries.
However, in the past, South Indian filmmakers have also remade Bollywood films. We’ve curated a list of the top ten South Indian remakes of Bollywood films over the last decade.
3 Idiots Tamil remake Nanban
2009 release 3 Idiots was held up as the benchmark for a successful Bollywood film. However, there are several issues with this film. Despite this, the film turns out to be very funny, with brilliant actors and dialogues. And its remake did justice to the original movie.
Jolly LLB Tamil remake Manithan
For obvious reasons, Jolly LLB was one of the most heartwarming films. The film has it all: excellent acting, a fantastic storyline, and a compelling narrative. Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani’s performances deserved a lot of praise. Though not as hilarious as Jolly LLB, the Tamil remake is still well-made.
Delhi Belly Tamil remake Settai
Delhi Belly was a fun film that has a good narrative and storyline, and considering that it was made on a limited budget, it performed admirably, particularly when there were no A-listed actors in the crew. The remake had the same impact on the audience as the original film did.
Pyaar ka Punchnama Telugu remake Green Signal
Despite the fact that Pyaar Ka Punchnama is a controversial and misogynist film, many people enjoyed the movie. The Telugu remake failed miserably in its attempt to represent the film as it was.
A Wednesday Tamil remake Unnaipol Oruvan and Telgu remake Eenadu
A Wednesday is one film that has been remade in both Telugu and Tamil. And this film is deserving of it as well. This film sends a strong message about terrorism and deserves to be remade in every country.
Kahani Telugu remake Anamika
Despite the fact that Kahani did not meet expectations at the box office, it was a huge hit on OTT and television, demonstrating how genius the storey premise was and how strong Vidya Balan’s performance was. The Telugu remake is set in Hyderabad and incorporates the cultural complexities that the Nizams’ capital has to bring.
Pink Tamil remake Nerkonda Paarvai
Pink is without a doubt one in the best Bollywood films of the last ten years. It features good acting and depicts a harsh reality of women in the society. The story of the film was simply incredible. In the Tamil remake, Ajith replaced Amitabh Bachchan and did a fair role.
Khosla ka Ghosla Tamil remake Poi Solla Porom
The film Khosla Ka Ghosla is absolutely outstanding. It has a good sense of humour while posing many challenges that a common man faces in his life. The sequel was as good as the movie.
Dabangg Telugu remake Gabbar Singh
Dabangg is a film that had a significant impact on Sonakshi Sinha’s career and was also very successful. However, if Salman can reinvent South Indian films, so can South Indian filmmakers. Pawan Kalyan and Shruti Haasan play the lead roles in the remake.
Jab We Met Tamil remake Kanden Kadhalai
The film was entertaining, with twists and turns and mixed emotions. Bharath and Tamannaah starred in the remake of this film. The South sequel has the same effect on the viewers as the original film.
