On my last post, I wrote about my opinion on why Bollywood should stop remaking movies. So, today I thought why not to write a list of upcoming Bollywood movies in the remake of either South Indian or Hollywood movies.
In 2019, we have already seen several movies lined up to get released by the end of this year among them a few are remakes.
Recently, Rohit Shetty’s ‘Simmba’ was also a remake of the south Indian superhit film ‘Temper,’ which was a box-office blockbuster.
Check out the list of upcoming Bollywood movies in remakes of the following movies.
Pati Patni Aur Woh
The original movie featured Sanjeev Kumar in the 1974 film ‘Pati Patni Aur Who’ will be remade by Bhushan Kumar starring Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Pandey in the lead.
Bhumi Pednekar will play the wife. Kartik Aryan and Ananya Pandey will step in the shoes of Sanjeev Kumar and Ranjeeta Kaur.
The movie will hit the theatres on 6 December 2019.
Kirik Party is a 2016 Kannada rom-com film which Bollywood has decided to remake. Kartik Aaryan was supposed to play the lead along with Jacqueline Fernandez, but as per the latest news he has walked out of the movie due to creative differences.
The movie release date, the lead actor, hasn’t yet been finalized. We hope to see ‘Kirik Party’ on the theatres next year.
Coolie No. 1
1995 superhit comedy movie of Govinda and Karishma Kapoor is one of my favorite movies.
When Bollywood has thought of remaking the movie, of course, it has to be Varun Dhawan in the lead. I think he is the ideal actor who can play the comic role of Govinda better. It is now confirmed that the newbie Sara Ali Khan will be pairing opposite to Varun Dhawan.
He has already released the date on his Instagram account, its 1st May 2020. Earlier, we have seen his rom-com movies like, ‘Main Tera Hero,’ ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ etc. He acts better in comedy than the rest.
2018 Telegu action-drama film ‘RX 100’ is the upcoming Bollywood movies in the remake, and the lead actors will be Tara Sutaria opposite debutante Ahan Shetty. The plot contains a love story with intense action. The Bollywood remake will be directed by Milan Luthria and producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
The movie is all set to hit the theatres by June of this year 2019. I have seen the original Telegu movie recently online, and I loved it. I hope the Bollywood remake version will do justice to the film.
Kizzie Aur Manny
Recently, it came into the headlines of the entertainment news that ‘Kizzie Aur Manny’ which is the adaptation of the popular Hollywood movie ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ has been renamed ‘Dil Bechara.’
The story of two young cancer patient who falls in love and how they support each other. It’s a beautiful story.
It will be a challenge for the director Mukesh Chhabra and the lead actors to match with the original movie. Only then they can impress the audience because those who have watched ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ might expect more from the remake.
The movie is all set to get released on 29th November 2019.
The trailer of ‘Kabir Singh’ is out and Shahid Kapoor seems to give quite a promising performance. The movie is the remake of superhit Telegu film ‘Arjun Reddy’ where Vijay Devarakonda has given an outstanding performance.
It will be interesting to see Shahid Kapoor playing the character. Shahid Kapoor’s appearance in the movie looks rough and amazing.
The movie is getting released on 21st June 2019.
The next upcoming Bollywood movie in the remake is 2018 Marathi movie ‘Mulshi Pattern.’ There have been rumors that Salman Khan will be producing the movie and Aayush Sharma will play the lead. Aayush Sharma, whose debutante movie was ‘Loveyatri.’
The story of the movie is inspired from the unsustainable development in the Mulshi area of Pune during the 1990s. The Marathi language of the film is available on Zee5 channel. If you want to watch the original version.
The movie is expected to get on the theatres by 2019.
The 2016 Tamil comedy-drama film was also a remake of 2014 Malayalam film of the same title, is said to be again remade in Bollywood. There are news that actor Sushant Singh Rajput has shown his interest in doing this film.
Well, I can’t say much about the film as I don’t have any other information. I have seen the Malayalam ‘Bangalore Days’ which is the original film. A beautiful story of three cousins who reunite in Bangalore after several years. They embrace the city, their relationship, and life.
I don’t think such movies should be remade.
After the massive box-office success of ‘Baaghi,’ Tiger Shroff has shown his keen interest in playing the character Rambo in the Hindi version.
Undoubtedly, he is the best in the industry to fit in a role like this where the lead actor requires a lot of energy, body, and extreme action. Tiger Shroff poses all the qualities.
The movie will set in the theatres by 2020 and will be directed by Siddharth Anand.
Definitely, we will get to see a movie packed with a lot of action.
As you can see so many remake movies will be seen this year and the next. I hope, they do justice to the original movies in terms of direction and acting.
I am much interested in watching Bollywood remake ‘Coolie No.1’ and Tiger Shroff’s ‘Rambo.’ I have the least expectations from the rest.
Let me know if you know any other film that is going to be a remake in Bollywood. I shall add them in the list too.
Thank you all!
