Basically desi movie makers tried to 'desify' fight club. But Indians like the original. So there is a disconnect between what desi movie makers think what desi movie buffs expect.

The story is not about the setting up of fighting clubs for youth to vent out frustration. Its much deeper than that.
The English fight club brought exactly this aspect.

I think Chashme Buddoor(1981) by Sai Paranjpey inspired a british movie, with the same plot of 3 buds trying to woo the same girl. Just cant remember the name.
All similarities or common original sources aside, I guess plagiarization as is of Indian movies is very very rare. Mostly the movies have a common source or its just a far fetched similarity, like Vietnam Colony and Avatar mentioned in the first page.

I was watching "Out of Time" yesterday on some cable channel and I realized that the Emraan Hashmi movie "Zeher" is a rip-off of Out of time.

Saw the movie A Common Man starring Ben Kingsley and Ben Cross. The film is an official remake of A Wednesday! It is directed by the Sri Lankan film maker Chandran Rutnam who has worked with greats like George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. The movie is a worthwhile watch.

Note to Mods: I would not call making of "A Common Man" as plagiarization since it is an official remake of "A Wednesday!" Please move this post to the English Movies thread if it is not appropriate on this thread.

BTW, just curious if there is any instance where we thought some Hollywood movie was copied from an Indian movie but realized later that the 'original' Indian movie was also a copy of some other movie in a not-so-global language.

Considering how prevalent the plagiarization is in Indian movies, the fact that the so called original Indian movie is actually original should also be verified. If the movie was based on some Indian novel, there is a high chance that it is original, else I've my own doubts.

I recently watched Last Legas (2013). Though I wouldn't recommend that movie to anybody, the story-line is similar to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011).

The theme may be similar but the story line is certainly NOT.

The Telugu movie "Aahwanam" has been remade in Hollywood as "Divorce Invitation" by the same director - S V Krishna Reddy with a completely non-Indian star cast. The movie is on Netflix streaming. Catch it when you can. It is not a total disaster
