Yash Chopra Birth Anniversary: Seven Movies Directed By The Legendary Filmmaker That Led To South Remakes Starring Rajinikanth, Mammootty

iWhenever we think about Yash Chopra, it reminds us of good music, plush locales, beautiful heroines in career-defining roles, love stories and some epic dialogues. But before this filmmaker, turned completely towards enriching Bollywood with his romantic tales, he has made movies that spoke about the society, establishments and can be seen as a social commentary on the big economic divide in our county. In fact, Ittefaq is perhaps his only that didn’t have any songs. Such was the euphoria and the popularity of these movies that they got many remakes in different languages in India and abroad. The South Indian film industry seemed particularly enamoured by Chopra’s work as they remade a lot of his movies. YRF to Announce Mega Project Slate on Yash Chopra’s Birth Anniversary, Projects May Include Collaborations with Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn and Others

Now Chopra has worked a lot with Amitabh Bachchan and a lot of the actor’s movies with the director lent itself to South remakes. So while today we remember his movies fondly on his birth anniversary, let us also tell you about these remakes that you may not be aware of.

Dhool Ka Phool -Jeevana Teeralu

The theme of a Muslim raising a Hindu boy formed the premise of Chopra’s debut directorial. The movie was remade in Telugu titled Jeevana that starred Krishnam Raju, Vanisri, Jayasudha, Sivaji Ganesan and Kongara Jaggaiah.

Waqt – Bhale Abbayilu, Kolilakkam

The concept of lost and found was a favourite of nearly every filmmaker back in the late 60s and the whole of 70s. Waqt released in 1965 and reintroduced the genre in such a way that the movie became an instant hit. Laced with amazing music and a star-studded ensemble cast, Waqt became a blockbuster. It was then remade in Telugu as Bhale Abbayilu in 1969 and in Malayalam as Kolilakkam in (1981).

Deewar – Magaadu, Thee,  Nathi Muthal Nathi Vare

Deewar sealed Amitabh Bachchan’s angry young man moniker even further and became such a sensation that it has nearly five-six remakes. If we talk only about south remakes, it was Magaadu in Telugu starring NTR, Thee in Tamil with Rajinikanth in the lead and Nathi Muthal Nathi Vare in Malayalam with Mammootty in the lead. It also has a Turkish version and was remade in Hong Kong as well. Deewar could probably be the most remade movie of Yash Chopra.

Trishul – Mr Bharath and Mr Bharath

Trishul that told the story of a son’s revenge against his father who abandons his pregnant mother caught the eyes of Tamil and Telugu filmmakers. So both the industries named the movies Mr Bharath. While the Tamil version had Rajinikanth in it, the Telugu movie starred Sohan Babu.

Daag – Vichitra Jeevitham

Daag was an on-screen adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel The Mayor of Casterbridge that starred the heartthrob of the nation Rajesh Khanna with Sharmila Tagore and Rakhee. What I remember of the film is the soothing  music and a very complicated love triangle. The movie found a Telugu version titled Vichitra Jeevitham.

Mashaal – Ithile Iniyum Varu

Mashaal is the fight for justice, a fight to out the miscreants. All that leads to life altering and life threatening repercussions that changes the man who once only believed in being righteous. What society and its evils can do to an honest man is what Mashal was all about which got a Malayalam remaked titled Ithile Iniyum Varu. It starred Mammootty.

Darr – Preethse, Chinna

Chopra’s Darr itself borrows heavily from Hollywood film Cape Of Fear with Shah Rukh Khan playing the stalker who would do anything to make Kiran (Juhi Chawla) his. The film was remade in Kannada as Preethse and in Tamil as Chinna.

It’s not surprising to note that Chopra’s movies once upon a time spun so many remakes because the director believed in showing a side of the society or our psychology that hits close to home.

Haider Director Vishal Bhardwaj Voices His Opinion On Alleged Drug Nexus And Nepotism In Bollywood

Mumbai, Sep 27: Bollywood director Vishal Bhardwaj has rubbished claims that the Indian film industry has a toxic working culture or an insider-outsider divide, saying some people having “vested interest” are trying to malign its image. Bhardwaj says he believes that people in the industry are always there to support each other and for somebody like him, who doesn’t belong to any film family, it has been a cherishable experience. Saif Ali Khan Talks About Politics, Nepotism, Favouritism in the Bollywood Industry.

The death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput has triggered a lot of debates including one of “outsider v/s insider”, with many targeting the showbiz for ill-treatment of people who don’t have any links within the industry. There is also a talk about the alleged drug-nexus. Rajput was found dead at his Bandra residence here on June 14.

During a virtual press conference of Screenwriters Association (SWA) Awards on Friday, Bhardwaj in response to a question posed by PTI said, “I don’t personally feel there is toxic work culture. I believe there is so much love in our work culture. The film unit becomes like a complete family. There is such a beautiful work culture (here).”

The “Haider” director said there are people who have “vested interest” and they are trying to project cinema as a “toxic” work place. “I believe all this is rubbish about toxic working culture. Ours is a beautiful industry… jo barbad kiya jaa raha hai aajkal uske vested interest kis tarah ke hai sabko malum hai (Ours is a beautiful industry, which has been ruined due to vested interest and we all know about this). “And we also know why it is happening. So please forgive us, leave us on our own. We are doing good,” he added. Bollywood Drug Case: WhatsApp Issues Clarification After Investigation Agencies Retrieve Chats.

“It has nothing to do with insider or outsider. All this is banai hui bakwas (All this nonsense has been made up). We are like a family. I never felt like an outsider in the industry. Whatever little I have felt, that might happen in any other profession (as well). “The emotional support that you get here, that you might not get in any other work culture. It is a beautiful industry, there is no toxic culture,” he said.

The director, however, is optimistic about the industry regaining its glory as soon as the cinema halls open. “This is one side bowling happening. We are yet to get to ball because our theatres are closed. Those who are abusing are the ones who go and purchase tickets to watch films. Let our Friday come,” he said. Theatres across the country have been closed since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
