Five Bad Hindi Remakes Of Malayalam Films That We Won’t Forget

Bad Hindi Remakes Of Malyalam Films
Malayalam cinema is known for its great narratives and films with good plots and skilled actors becoming instant hits in the South. The Hindi film industry is known for remakes of regional films. However, replicating a blockbuster film is challenging, especially when the original film is in Malayalam because finding suitable replacements for the actors is difficult. However, many Malayalam films have been remade in other languages, and although some have been successful, others have been disasters.

Manichitrathazhu, which was remade in Hindi as Bhool Bhulaiyaa, is one of the most successful films. The film was a box office success, and a sequel to the first film, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, is set to be released soon. Another Akshay Kumar film is Hera Pheri, which is also a remake of the superhit Malayalam film Ramji Rao’s Speaking. The Hindi version was also a big smash and is considered one of Bollywood’s most beloved comedies. Ajay Devgn’s Drishyam was also a remake of Drishyam, a superhit Malayalam film. Here we’ve compiled a list of Malayalam films with disappointing remakes.
