Raj Vardhan
Hello Sir!
Johnny Gaddar was a really good film....full of nice twist and turns and even the climax was surprising(in a good way).If we go by bollywood standard,then it was like watching a good hollywood thriller but I always used to wonder whether its a copy or an original story because at that time and even today,we don't see a good thriller coming out of bollywood having a novel and decent concept.

Well.......I was right!
This movie is a remake of a 1963 french film called 'Symphonie Pour Un Massacre" or 'The Corrupt'.Although I haven't seen the original film but IMDB states the the movie is copied from the french film(the original film is hard to find) and also I have read the NY TIMES review of the french film.I found lots of similarities between both the films and the film indeed look like was copied from the french film

Dear Raj,
That's quite an interesting find but the movie is not available anywhere at the net.
Lets try and do let me know if you somehow get hold of it.
Would let you know if I succeed on this side.

Keep writing in.
Cheers!
