Directors like Sanjay Gupta and Vikram Bhatt are called DVD directors. Though there have been smart Bollywood lifts like Aradhna(1969), Sholay(1975) Raaz(2000), Baazigar(1993), Munnabhai MBBS(2003)Rang De Basanti(2006) and Race(2008), some Hollywood movies copy Hollywood movies scene by scene.

Comment: I find it strange that 3 Deewarein has been described as a lift. Frankly, I find little similarity betweeen Nagesh Kukunoor's movie at Shawshank Redemption, except for the fact that its set in a jail.

Comment: One more to add in the world of plagiarism: HAWAS
Richard Gere's Unfaithful Dir by Ed Sumner.

Although movies are also repeated in Hollywood but there are known to have been remade. For exmaple, Parent Trap, Basic Instinct, Mama Mia, Cape fear, etc.

Comment: I was thinking of doing of doing a piece on Holly piracy in Newsletter http:newsviews-raceclass.blogpsot.com. It was very interesting to read your list of parated movies which one of my friends has sent me. However I note a few movies are missing, for example,
Heart Broken (Akele Ham Aketle), House Sitter (Don't know the name - Anil Kapoor & Rani Mukhejee's movie), Deadman (Gayab), Ak Ajnabi (Danzel Washington's, I forget the name) Pya r ka Saya (remake of Ghost), Inside man (Chiyan Chiyan), Burning bad (Provoked though a real story), etc. Pleasw let me know if you find out.
