April 23, 2014 Wednesday     
The first half of year 2011 was certainly much better than 2010 with many good films making their impression on the viewers from the month of January itself. In fact it was the best January for Bollywood till date as per my movie watching experience.
But still the inspired movies list is there as an unstoppable feature of Hindi Film Industry. However the positive sign is that the list is not a big one in the first half of 2011 as compared to the last year.
And here it goes…..,
Bin Bulaye Baarati - Takes references from “Pratiggya” (1975)
Love Express - Works around the same plot used in “Socha Na Tha” (2002)
Shaitan - A rehashed version of Anurag Kashyap’s ownfilm “Paanch” (2002)
Ready - Official Remake of Telugu “Ready” (2008)
Ragini Mms – Indianised version of “Paranormal Activity” (2007) and scenes from “The Blair Witch Project” (1999)
Luv Ka The End – Follows the basic plot of “John Tucker Must Die” (2006). Also reminds you ofMean Girls” (2004) and the famous Net Telecast sequence seen in the “American Pie” series of films.
Haunted - 3d – References of “The Entity” (1982) and our own version of it called “Hawa (2003)featuring Tabu. The climax reminds you of the of “Ringu” (1998) andthe plot of going into the past also has a hangover of “Back To The Future” series of films.
Naughty @ 40 – Inspired from English Sex Comedy “The 40 Years Old Virgin” (2005) and from our own Bollywood’s Sex-Comedy’s called “Anubhav” (1986).
Chalo Dilli – A good but unofficial remake of the English Hit “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” (1987).
Shor In The City – Has a sequence inspired from2010 British black comedy called “Four Lions”.
Zokkomon - Its main story plot borrows heavily from the one we have already seen in a well made children film by Vishal Bhardwaj’s “Makdee” (2002). 
Dharti (Punjabi) – A toned down regional version of Prakash Jha’s “Raajneeti” (2010)
F.A.L.T.U – Heavily based on “Accepted” (2006) which was also said to be made around a similar idea used in “Camp Nowhere” (1994).
Utt Pataang – Completely lifted froma Japanese movie titled “Unmei Janai Hito” or “A Stranger Of Mine”released in 2005.
Turning 30!!! - Basic idea behind the film looks like influenced by famous western projects such as “Bridget Jones Diary” (2001) and “Sex & The City” (2008).

Inspired Movies from Real Life Incidents and Life Stories
Hostel – Based on the real life cruel incident of Ragging in College.
Monica – Loosely based onthe infamous Shivani Bhatnagar murder case.
No One Killed Jessica – Made on the true story of Jessica Lall, a Delhi-based model, who was shot in 1999 at a New Delhi restaurant.
Patiala House – The basic idea taken from the life of Money Panesar, the only SIKH cricketer playing for England.
Inspired Movies from Literature and Books
7 Khoon Maaf - Based on “Susanna's Seven Husbands” by Ruskin Bond.
Kashmakash - Based on a story by Rabindranath Tagore, called “Nauka Dubi”.

(Note: Do let me know if you are aware of any other inspired movie which came in the first half of 2011 but is not listed here by chance.)
