Plot & Story inspired by oldies
19 September 2015 | by mkumar-newdelhi1See all my reviews

The Plot idea of "Rangeela" is not original.. its Bollywood inspired by Bollywood itself.

Any guesses ? Well Year -1970 Movie - Mere Humsafar.. only difference here is in the old movie the director played by non other but Balraj Sahini has his eye on the lady and woes to win her, make her career etc., while the poor village boy (Jeetendra) almost looses her to the film world & glamor..

Plot very similar and identical..

Incidentally there is another Aamir Khan movie again inspired by an old blockbuster movie of 1971 and that's Caravan again starring Jeetendra, and the movie is "Mela", but that attempt was a failure, as the Original was too good.
