Ground Report | New Delhi: List of Bollywood songs Copied; Long before the Internet existed, content “creators” had the freedom to pick up “viral” stuff from around the world or simply be inspired that floated across the airwaves, without calling in front of 5 million furious followers. Twitter or Facebook.
Bollywood should come up with something new and innovative. I mean, are they running out of originality?
Mehbooba Mehbooba (Sholay)
Oh yes! RD Burman’s famous song Mehbooba Mehbooba from the film Sholay (1975) is copied from Demis Russo’s song You Love Me, which was released in 1974, a year before the film.
Thori Der (Half Girlfriend)
The song is a copy of the original 2015 song by Pakistani singer Farhan Saeed which was adapted by the film’s composer Pritam.
Ekka Da Ekkada from Veedu Thada
Veedu Thada is a 2011 Telugu film starring Nikhil Siddhartha and Pooja Banerjee. The film was not bad but his upbeat song Ekkra Ekkra attracted attention for another reason.
Copied from Bonamana, Bonamana was released by Super Junior as the title track of their studio album in 2010. He is one of the pioneers of heli waves in South Korea.
Bhool Bhulaiyaan Title Track
Original: My Laecon – JTL
The title track of Bhool Bhulaiyaan featuring Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Ameesha Patel is also one of the Bollywood songs copied from KPOP. The film was a huge success and remains among the most-watched films in India’s list.
The instantly recognisable title track of “Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya” (2001) and this music from “Exorcist II: The Heretic” (1977).
“Pehli Nazar” from “Race” (2008) and the Korean song “Sarang Hae Yo” (2005) by Kim Hyung Su.
“Zaalima” from “Raees” (2017) and “Eyes, Nose, Lips” (2014) by Korean singer Taeyang.
Seems like Bollywood music producers listen to a lot of K-Pop, because here’s another — The title track of “Bhool Bhulaiyaa” (2007) and the first few notes of “My Lecon” (2001) by JTL. (List of Bollywood songs Copied)
Throwing it way back for this one, “Pal Pal” from “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” (2006) and Cliff Richard’s “Theme For A Dream” which came about half a century before it.
My all-time jam, “Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai” from “Woh Lamhe…” (2006) and 2005’s “Tak Bisakah” by Noah (formerly called Peterpan).
“Babuji Dheere Chalna” (1954) and Doris Day’s “Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps” (itself a cover of a Spanish song “Quizás, Quizás, Quizás” from the 1940s) which, incidentally, recently featured in “Cruella” (2021).
The peppy “Dil Mein Baji Guitar” from “Apna Sapna Money Money” (2006) and 1997’s “Sheloha Shela” by the Miami Band.
The very dance-able “Neend Churaayi Meri” from “Ishq” (1997) and “Sending All My Love” by Linear (1990).
