Bollywood Movies With The Same Name

Producers often launch projects by revealing the cast and release date but the title isn’t disclosed. That’s because they haven’t come up with one yet or they just want to build curiosity. Naming a film isn’t easy as the title should convey what the film is about. Who would have thought that Akshay Kumar’s Baby is a spy-thriller? So what do makers do when they can’t come up with an original title? Well, they simply copy it from an older movie. Here are some titles that have been used more than once.

1. Barsaat (1949, 1995, 2005)

Bobby Deol featured in two of these and the 1995 film marked his debut. All the three movies belonged to the genre of romance.

2. Hera Pheri (1976, 2000)

You may remember the Hera Pheri which starred Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal but the 1976 one too, was a superhit as well.

3. Agent Vinod (1977, 2012)

Is Agent Vinod Bollywood’s version of James Bond? Definitely not. While the 1972 film was a sleeper hit, Saif’s version bombed at the box-office.

4. Dilwale (1994, 2015)

5. Mr. X (1957, 2015)

Ashok Kumar and Emraan Hashmi played this character in the 1957 and 2015 film respectively. Mr. X had the power of invisibility, which made it easier for him to take revenge from those who wronged him.

6. Dostana (1980, 2008)
