The trend of remakes have taken over Bollywood. Most of Bollywood actors, directors and producers are looking for movies from south, to make remakes. Some of them say they have just got inspired, some officially announce the remake and many hide and pretend as if their film is unique and fresh. We have no Idea, why is Bollywood focusing so much on Remakes. Is it, because the original movies were big hits and they prove a sure shot success? OR is Bollywood running out of creativity?
There are already hundreds or remakes that have become a part of Bollywood. Many of them were inspired from Hollywood and many from South Indian Movies.

Next Release of Salman Khan is Kick, Kick is the remake of Telugu super hit film kick Starring Ravi Teja. The film is not released yet, but I am sure. Most of the things will be the same in this movie. But stardom of Salman Khan will give a kick to the story and Kick is releasing on EID so there is no doubt about the success of the movie. Kick can be the top earner at Box office in 2014.

Khoobsurat 2014 Remake of Khoobsurat 1980
There are many flops in Bollywood when the industry tries to remake old cult classics.If you look at the past Sholay, Umrao Jaan, Himmatwala ,Karz. Khoobsurat 1980 was a classic romantic comedy film and remake is going to release this year starring Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Afzal Khan. I don’t have much expectations from this movie because if you are remaking a classic comedy film you can never compete with them by using the new trend of Bollywood.
