Court grants bail to remake specialist
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
March 09, 2007
There is nothing wrong in remaking movies, but one must remember to buy the copyright of the original before going ahead. If one forgets to do that then court is the place one will land up in. some directors have a penchant for remaking movies. Call it dearth of original ideas, creative incompetence or whatever you like.
No one seems to mind as long as the movie is good and makes money. Priyadarshan has been at this for a long time now. He remakes successful comedies from other languages in Hindi and he has been hugely successful. Starting from Hera Pheri there have been a slew of hits including Hungama, Garam Masala and the recent Bhaagam Bhag. His only original hit in Hindi is Malaamal Weekly.

He has been in some minor troubles before regarding the remake rights, but all of them have been sorted out outside courts. But recently a producer named Machindra Chate filed a case against Priyadarshan and the producers of Bhaagam Bhag for allegedly lifting some scenes from a movie called Bindhast. The case was filed at the district court of Aurangabad. After a hearing the court granted Priyadarshan anticipatory bail until Apr.20. This is not the end of the case as it will come up for hearing later next month. Let's see whether the remake specialist will have to pay a heavy price. One thing is sure; he will have to do a lot of running around to save his face (Bhaagam Bhag).
