The lazily named films

Bollywood isn't exactly known for its originality. We're always recycling plots and DVDs, and remixing evergreeen hits which is why we don't even blink when we see a movie picking its title from an older film.

We decided to a brief look at some movies that were too lazy to come up with their own names, and see how they match up against the original titles. Let's roll:

Dostana

Raj Khosla's film about two buddies turned on each other by the nefarious Prem Chopra remains eminently watchable because of the top-notch cast. Tarun Mansukhani's new film has nothing to do with the original -- save for being produced by Yash Johar's son Karan -- and happens to be a desification of the Adam Sandler film I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry. An entire film riffing on the Kantabai gag? Um, at least the Shilpa Shetty song is hot as hell.
