The Best Hollywood-Bollywood Remakes (Copies) Ever – Part III

8. The Westerns

Yes, we’ve always had our own brand of ‘Curry’ Westerns, complete with guns, horses and the barren landscape. Feroze Khan was the poster-boy of this genre in Bollywood, but once in a while, every star worth his salt has tried his hand at it. One desi equivalent of the Western Outlaw, the ‘daaku’ genre, was also immensely popular in the 70s and 80s (the genre merits a list of its own, having spawned scores of exploitation movies like Daaku Hasina and Phoolan Hasina Ramkali)
