Bollywood and the rest of the Indian cinema industry are pretty creative. Not only in coming up with original content, but also with copying :).. Back in the 70s and 80s, it was pretty norm, for most of the tunes to be copied from western tunes. I am in no way stating that all the content is copied, but quite a bit of it was. Starting from the movie plots, to the music in the songs. Here’s a good example (although the copy sounds a lot better to me 🙂 ).
ORIGINAL : “500 Miles” by Peter, Paul & Mary
COPY : “Jab Koi Baat” in the movie Jurm
