Getting 'inspired' from Hollywood films is nothing new for Bollywood.
We have seen Hindi films that are not-so-subtle rip-offs of Hollywood hits.
The copy-and-paste process comes very naturally to certain filmmakers, musicians and dialogue writers. Even movie posters get copied.
The first teaser poster of Zoya Akhtar's multi-starrer movie Zindagi Na Milege Dobara released to positive feedback yesterday. But the bubble burst for us when we stumbled upon the movie poster of 2005 Hollywood film Lords Of Dogtown.
Lords Of Dogtown is a biographical film about a bunch of influential skateboarders, who revolutionized the sport. Except for the order in which the three men are standing and the accessories held in the hands, the ZNMD poster has little to call its own.
The film stars Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin. The story is about three friends taking off on a fun road trip.
The film is produced by Excel Entertainment whose last week release Game was a dud at the box office. Quit playing games already!
