Cinema came to India in the late 1800’s and has become the 2nd oldest film industry in the world. Since then, Bollywood has had its fair share of bad films and good films. Almost 2000 films are made every year in various languages which makes up a total revenue of more than $2billion.
Our cinema has evolved over every decade with films in different genres, different languages etc. With such a vivid background Bollywood has managed to produce numerous gems over the years. Many of these movies have been remade in the recent times in order to cash onto the fame of its original counterpart, but there are a lot of movies that can never be remade because of their grandeur and sheer performances.
Here are 12 movies that movie makers shouldn’t ever try remaking :
