The Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston flick Just Go With It, which
released in India this week, is the remake of Salman Khan's film
Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya.
A plastic surgeon (Adam Sandler), in love with a younger
schoolteacher and seeks the help of his loyal assistant (Jennifer
Aniston) for pretending to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order hide
a careless lie. The story is exactly, the same as David Dawan's
Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005), starring Salman Khan as the doctor,
Katrina Kaif as the young girl and Sushmita Sen as the loyal
The surprising part is that a Hollywood film has copied a
Bollywood film. Well, to clear out the confusion, Main Pyaar Kyun
Kiya and Just Go With It are a remake of a 1969 flick, Cactus
Flower. Therefore, this time Bollywood was quicker in seeking
inspiration as compared to Hollywood.
Earlier the same happened with Steve Carell's Dinner For
Schmucks, which was released last year. The film had exactly the
same storyline like Vinay Pathak's superhit Bheja Fry. Later it was
learnt that both the films were a remake of the French film The
Dinner Game that was released way back in 1998.
