Kevin Costner Birthday Special: 7 Movies of Hollywood Legend That Inspired These Bollywood Flicks of Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, John Abraham (LatestLY Exclusive)

Kevin Costner Birthday Special: 7 Movies of Hollywood Legend That Inspired These Bollywood Flicks of Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, John Abraham (LatestLY Exclusive)

The inimitable Kevin Costner is turning 66 in January 18, 2021. Join us in wishing the actor-writer-director Many Many Happy Returns of the Day! Kevin Costner’s career is quite a fascinating one. He has been part of some classics like Dances With Wolves, The Bodyguard, The Untouchables, etc that continue to enthrall the viewers even now. But Costner is also known for his big misfires that also continue to be talked about, be it his Robin Hood film, or the highly divisive Waterworld or the post-apocalyptic thriller The PostmanSean Connery’s The Untouchables Co-Actor Kevin Costner Remembers the Late Actor, Says ‘He Was the Biggest Star That I Ever Worked With’.

In recent years, Costner is rather happy taking supporting roles in big movies like Man of Steel or Hidden Figures. Or being the lead in indie flicks like The Highwaymen and Criminal. But in this special feature, let’s look at how some of his films have inspired Bollywood.

Starting off with the most obvious is The Bodyguard.

Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston in The Bodyguard

The 1992 film is about a former secret service agent who becomes bodyguard to a popstar. Whitney Houston, who played the female lead, gave the hit song “I Will Always Love You” in this film.

The Bodyguard later inspired director Ravi Raja Pinisetty to remake the film, and even simply translating the title into Hindi, as Angrakshak. The movie starred Sunny Deol and Pooja Bhatt in the lead.

Now let’s talk about another Kevin Costner classic, Dances With Wolves, that not just inspired but also Hollywood. James Cameron’s Avatar has its premise bear closely to that of this 1990 film, that was directed by Costner himself. Dances With Wolves won seven Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director.

While Avatar owns its inspiration to Costner, so does Mahesh Manjrekar’s Praan Jaye Par Shaan Na Jaye. The whole thread of Aman Verma coming to a chawl to slyly convince the tenants there to evacuate their houses on behest of a corporation, and then standing against his own employers, is inspired by Costner’s film. Interestingly, this thread is actually similar to Mohanlal’s Malayalam film, Vietnam Colony that came out in 1992. So we know who stole first!

Then let’s talk about one of the best gangster thrillers of all time, The Untouchables. Based on the real-life capture of the crime-lord Al Capone, this 1987 classic starred Costner, the late Sir Sean Connery, Andy Garcia and Robert De Niro (who played Capone).

Kevin Costner in The Untouchables

The Untouchables inspired this lesser-seen action thriller made by David Dhawan in 1989. Jurrat, starring Kumar Gaurav and Shatrughan Sinha, was nearly a replica of the film. Akshay Kumar’s Aan: Men at Work was also loosely inspired by the movie. What’s interesting is that both the films had Shatrughan Sinha as common.

What’s more, the iconic scene in The Untouchables of Capone killing a gangster with a baseball bat was used to similar effect in a scene in Indra Kumar’s Pyare Mohan, where Boman Irani was Capone’s stand-in. (Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal also shares a faint semblance to Costner’s Hidden Figures, but it’s not worth putting on this list). Kevin Costner Reveals Robin Williams Almost Played His Role in ‘Field of Dreams’.

Let’s talk about a lesser known Kevin Costner film, American Flyers, that came out in 1985. The sports drama was about two brothers who bond over bicycle racing.

This particular thread was one of the two inspirations behind the Aamir Khan 1992 classic Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, the other (and the more major one being) the 1979 movie Breaking Away.

When we talk about one Khan, can we leave out the other Khans? The 1990 thriller Revenge is considered as one of Costner’s less-appreciated films. He plays a former Air Force officer who falls for the young wife of an aging crime lord, which leads to disastrous consequences.

Kevin Costner in Revenge

Albeit taken a lot of creative changes, Revenge was still the inspiration for Rakesh Roshan’s 1997 film Koyla, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit, with the late Amrish Puri playing the villain. Instead of being the villain’s friend, SRK’s character is more of his loyalist who breaks out to rescue the young girl who the old man marries, only to bear the latter’s wrath. Before Koyla happened, Mahesh Bhatt was to remake Revenge with Rahul Roy in the lead. The movie that was called Khilona got shelved, however.

Madhuri Dixit and Shah Rukh Khan in Koyla

In 2002, Kevin Costner was the main lead in a supernatural thriller, Dragonfly, that had him as a widower doctor who senses that his deceased wife is communicating with him.

An year later, Anurag Basu ripped off this movie as Saaya, starring John Abraham and Tara Sharma. With added melodrama and some lovely songs, Saaya, however, failed to impress at the box office.

Finally, let’s talk about the 1993 film A Perfect World. The crime drama had Costner’s fugitive kidnap a young boy and take him as a hostage, but they bond together while on the road.

This plotline of A Perfect World was the inspiration for the 2017 Hindi film, Madaari. While the basic thread is the same, Madaari also added a social angle to the story.

Irrfan Khan in Madaari

While the film was an average grosser at the box office, it is with some sadness that we remember Madaari now, as it stars the late Irrfan Khan (whose wife, Sutapa Sikdar, was one of the producers), and was the last film directed by the late Nishikant Kamat, both of whom passed away last year.

Did we miss out on any more times Kevin Costner’s films inspired Bollywood? Do enlighten us in the comments section below.

The actor said she started her journey, at the same place — in Jaisalmer 11 years back. The ‘Vicky Donor’ star hopped on to Instagram and shared pictures from Jaisalmer where she is shooting for the movie. Bhoot Police: Saif Ali Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Arjun Kapoor and Yami Gautam Head to Mumbai for Second Shooting Schedule

The actor also recalled her memories from her first shoot as she shared a smiling selfie. “This is where 11 years back I started my journey as an actor, in the stunning Jaisalmer!

Master Box Office Collection Day 5: Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi Starrer Film Enters the 100 Cr Club Within a Week of Its Release

Master Box Office Collection Day 5: Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi Starrer Film Enters the 100 Cr Club Within a Week of Its Release

Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Master, in an iconic move, was one of the first films to reach the cinemas after the lockdown. The film which stars Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi is currently roaring at the box office. The film opened with a massive crowd coming in to watch their favourite stars on the big screen and helped the team rake in a huge amount of money for the film’s business. The film managed to pool in Rs 40 crores in Tamil Nadu alone in two days of the release and now has even entered the 100 crore club within a week. Master Box Office Collection Day 3: Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi’s Film Grosses Over Rs 50 Crore in Tamil Nadu Alone!

The new box office numbers suggest that the film has collected Rs 125 crore at the box office in mere 5 days. Master is said to have collected 81 crores in Tamil Nadu, Rs 20 crore in other Telegu states, Rs 14 crore in Karnataka and Rs 7.5 crore in Kerala. They also raked in an extra Rs 2.5 crore in other states of India. Considering that cinemas in many states are opened with only 50 per cent occupancy, we think Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi is doing fairly well for itself. Master had grossed over Rs 50 crore in Tamil Nadu alone within the first three days and is all set to be remade in Hindi.

Apart from this, Chennai Police earlier has booked a theatre for sneering the social distancing rules at the screening of Master. As per the government rule, only 50% occupancy is allowed in the theatres, but the management of the said theatres reportedly allowed more people to enter their premises. As per reports in The News Minute, the theatre was booked under Sections 188 and 269 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Master Box Office Collection Day 2: Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi’s Film Roars at the Ticket Window, Surpasses Rs 40 Crore in TN!

Helmed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the film also features Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das, Andrea Jeremiah and Shanthanu Bhagyaraj in pivotal roles. The film did not impress the Hindi-speaking audience, so the question that now is being raised is if the Hindi remake will work in favour of makers or not. The casting for the film will begin soon as well and we cannot wait to see how it will turn out to be.
