Sad trend of remakes and sequels

In hollywood this trend has been going for a few years now. But its starting to take off in India too now.

Its surprising the number of remakes being made within few months of the original.

I don’t mind seeing movies that are dubbed into other languages, don’t remake them again and again.

One such example, many more are out there

in Malayalam as Katha Parayumpol (2007) in Tamil as Kuselan (2008) in Telugu as Kathanayakudu (2008) in Hindi as Billu (2009)

Ghajini, SingamKakkakuyil (made into Golmal) etc

There are many such incidents, either movie makers are out of ideas or getting lazy.

Sequels are also becoming a trend. But most of them have not worked so far luckily.

As a moviegoer we are the ones responsible for this trend. Let us all stop watching sequels and remakes, may be then they will start making new movies with original stories.

Here are some ideas for new movies, just take a history book and look at the number of kings and queens in them. Make movies about them.

Jodha Akbar, which was beautifully made was a big hit. We have such a great culture why are more movies not being made about that.

Audience will appreciate a movie if its made with care. Stop making sequels and remakes and you stop watching them.
