8 Bollywood Movies That Made Us Say “I’ve Seen This Before”

Sometimes when you are watching a movie, you get a feeling that you have seen something like that before and chances are you probably have. We are not talking about remakes or adaptations here, but about movies which are based on a similar concept. So when you are watching them, you can’t help but think that they are the same, but different, and yet, the same. Check them out here:

#1. Mom – Maatr

Both the movies released this year and starred wonderful actresses who delivered spectacular performances. Yes, there are many movies that support the issue, yet the similarity between the two movies, including their titles, just adds to the feeling.

#2. Lucknow Central – Qaidi Band

We have had movies set in prison before. The concept of forming a band in a prison is novel but becomes old very soon, especially when there are two movies discussing it weeks apart. Although, it was interesting to see how the vision of a director can change the story.

#3. London, Paris, New York – Hum Tum

Two people meet, separate, and meet again only to separate. Later, the guy becomes popular and meets the girl again, especially after an interview. Well, now you know the story of both these movies.

#4. Dangerous Ishq – Ek Paheli Leela

A woman is at the center of a saga that goes back centuries and re-incarnations. Although the tales are different, the way the characters are handled in the movies does give you a similar feel.

#5. OMG! Oh My God – PK

This one is common knowledge and you will agree with us when we say that the way some religious practices were attacked is similar.

#6. Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hain – Mujhse Dosti Karoge

In the former, there are two guys fighting for their lady love and in the latter, the same premise revolves around two women. The result is the same –pyaar hi dosti hain.

#7. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge – Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

Promoted as the DDLJ of the new generation, there was no doubt that it will bear a resemblance to the original content. But there are too many similarities and hence gets a space on our list.

#8. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam – Tanu Weds Manu Returns

A married person is in love with someone else. Their partner makes sure that their spouse is reunited with the love of their life. Later, the said person-in-love decides to stay true to their marriage vows. Complicated plot, but similar stories.
